Shannon T. Boodram  Laid Young People's Experiences with Sex in an Easy Access Culture ebook

Laid Young People's Experiences with Sex in an Easy Access CultureGages teens and twentysomethings in honest dialogue and explores how they see and experience sex how and why it shapes their beliefs and what they have learned about themselves and their sexuality through their actions Laid is a great conversation starter and doesn’t shy away Laid Young eBook #9734 from the personal topics A great resource for young people The world needed this book and it was fantastic Editor Shannon Boodram masterfully melded the stories from her own life as well as others to give various perspectives on sex I loved the organization of the book in general with regards to topics I wasn't as big a fan of the uestionnaires at the end that involve your self reflection after reading a chapter If you like to pause and actively reflect using a pen on paper then this is the perfect book for you The stories themselves were beautiful relatable and at times horribly devastating The poetry in the book didn't speak much to me but it showed up only a handful of times The best sections were in prose I saw that one story was told twice in the book I'm not sure if this was on accident or on purpose but either way it was annoying I think the stories could have had graphic details about sex itself since people don't really talk about how idiosyncratic it can be The topic was breached when the editor talked about how inaccurate porn is but I think the topic could've been dissected a lot than it was Most of the stories where sexual intercourse itself was the primary plot point rather than getting an STI etc had minimal details and could've been fleshed out further
