For those of you who have the book, do you feel anything was left out? Or which you would have liked to have been expanded?

The book is already in its second printing, but it's smart for me to prepare for the third, as well as for a possible second edition.

So, if you have any notes, things you wished had been in it but were not, things you'd like more info on than you got, let me know and I'll make a note of it.

Thanks!

I think that the book covers all the basics and that there is nothing that you left out, really. However, since communication is so important, maybe sample dialogues on how to start a conversation with your partner on sex, or how to tell your parents that you're sexually active (or telling them that you're pregnant), or how to come out to your best friend.

I really like the buddy system article you had, so perhaps a tear-out type sheet that people can refer to in your book would be an awesome bonus!

p.s. I saw someone at the library check out the S.E.X. book and I was really excited. We have two copies, and they're never checked-in.

Those are helpful suggestions, thanks!

I did provide tools for those conversations in there, and since dialogues tend to add a lot of pages (something publishers tend to frown on with already big books), it may not be possible, but it's certainly something to posit.
