Heather,
Thank you for making this site available for teens to get sex and sexuality information. Your work is vitally important. I particularly like the style of your presentation of the material, which is neither condescending nor preachy, while speaking to teens in their own language. I pre-ordered two copies of the S.E.X. book - 1 for my teenage daughter and 1 to donate to her high school. Even though I've been very open with her and have told her everything I could think of, my daughter has devoured the book in just a few days. Because our rural Texas community is very conservative, I experienced more than a little anxiety when I took the second copy to her school, but the librarian was so happy to receive it, she almost kissed me! She was not going to make it available in general circulation but was planning to keep it in her office as part of her "private stash," when the subject comes up - and it does come up a lot for her. Word must get around fast. It mysteriously disappeared from her office before the end of the day, but I'm ordering another one. I might just have to order 2 or 3. Thanks again.

Aw, thank YOU! What a nice thing to wake up to.

And big applause to you for getting one to donate - in my promotional events, I'm making a big point of encouraging people to buy copies for donation to schools, clinics, youth centers, so that leaves me pleased as punch.

Sorry it got swiped so fast! [Smile]
