Does This Happen To Everyone?: A Budding Adult's Guide To Puberty

Insightful and considerate answers to 70 questions boys and girls have about puberty and young love. Even before they experience puberty and young love themselves, girls and boys have many questions about sex and sexuality. Parents often don't know the best way to answer them and it's practically impossible to find the right time to start a conversation about the birds and the bees. Especially today, when most young people have access to the internet and its explicit or dubious content, it is extremely important to address the topic of sex education with children proactively and give it the attention it needs and deserves. As daunting as it might be for parents to take the lead, leaving the internet or a classmate to "explain" sexuality is not an option. Thankfully, the book Does This Happen to Everyone? offers a welcome alternative with a contemporary look and feel that is both fitting for kids and appealing to adults. Does This Happen to Everyone? is an empathetic and entertaining publication that radiates joy, imaginativeness, and fun. In it, Photo artist Jan von Holleben and writer Antje Helms provide answers to the most important questions about puberty in words and images that are relaxed and uninhibited, yet suitable for children. The book takes questions, worries, and fears seriously and responds to them in a direct, yet sensitive way that anyone can understand.

Hated it. Horrible book. Did I mention I hated it??I knew this book had a European feel when it talked about having sex with anyone, anywhere, anytime you feel like it ( “on your parents’ living room floor,” for example). And be sure to check the laws where you live, so you don’t send your sex partner to prison!! Who IS this author? Not an expert on relationships or successful families.This book encourages kids to masturbate (calling it “an excellent form of contraception”) and says porn is magical and mythical and “won’t kill you,” though it mentions that it can be scary, disturbing, and cause nightmares.You’ll also find “helpful” answers to questions like these: “How many times is it okay to masturbate in a week?” (Answer: “It’s up to you, and if anyone tries to tell you it’s unhealthy they don’t know what they’re talking about. Masturbating is great.”) And “Can my parents forbid me from having sex?” (Answer: “Not really,” and it goes on to explain that their stupid reasons might make you angry, but….) “Is sex dangerous or unhealthy?” (Answer: Sex is one of the healthiest things in the world… endorphins boost your immune system.") I don’t think teens need to worry too much about boosting their immune system with sex! Luckily, it does mention STD’s and AIDS… just use condoms. “How old to I have to be before I can get the Pill without my parents’ consent?” Oh, great question! (Answer: No matter the age of consent where you live, you can get contraception at any age and without your parents knowing.) Perfect. Encourage them to lie and deceive. The section on “What makes you gay or lesbian?” turned my stomach.
