The Thinking Parent's Guide to Talking Sense about Sex is decidedly not for those parents whose sex speech is "just say no." Roffman's take on sexual education is that it’s a lifelong exploration that should encompass changing cultural values and an individual's evolving ethics as well as the practical facts of proper health care. As stated in one section's title; ‘sexuality is about people, not body parts.’ “Sex and Sensibility offers parents a concrete, practical and sensible road map to guide their sexual health parenting skills. Every parent needs this book to ensure their children grow up to be adults who are respectful, responsible, and are capable of healthy and safe intimate relationships.” -Barbara Kemp Huberman, Director of Sexuality Education, Advocates for Youth

According to a Time magazine poll (June 15, 1998), only 7 percent of kids “mainly learn about sex” from their parents. Most of the other 93 percent get their information (and their perspective) from peers and the media. Are they getting the information they need and want? Is there a comfortable, positive way for parents to talk with their children about sex?


“Responsibility is perhaps the most important value parents can teach their children. In this book, packed with ideas and practical, doable methods, the Eyres tell us how.”-William Kilpatric, author of Why Johnny Can’t Tell Right from Wrong

A radical new view of sexuality. The book explores the nooks and crannies of the modern erotic mind and discovers that below our seeming enthusiasm for sex lurks a bundle of fears. This erotic malaise powerfully affects our lives. It stunts sexual passion, inhibits frank and honest talk about sex, and generates shame about sexual organs. It even influences our political orientation. This sex-negativity is the product of a fascinating but toxic social system that the book is the first to identify. Understanding this system can powerfully enhance your sex life.

About the series... Shibari is the Japanese-inspired art of tying a subject to not only immobilize them, but to do so elegantly and beautifully - creating an intimate and erotic experience for both the subject and the person tying. Adopted by rope enthusiasts all over the world, shibari (literally "to tie” or "to bind”) is a cornerstone of erotic rope art and the subject of captivating performances and photographs. However, in-depth resources for learning the art are difficult to obtain, making shibari intimidating, obscure and difficult to master... Until now.

The Complete Shibari series is the most complete and accessible English-language guide to shibari ever published. Author Douglas Kent strips away shibari's mystery and reveals how to create visually stunning compositions with rope and the human form… in your own home or play space.

With short, clear explanations and over 340 lavish, step-by-step illustrations and photographs, Douglas Kent takes the intimidating world of shibari suspensions and makes it practical and straightforward.

As with the previous volume, this is not a "knot book”, but a straight-forward, hands-on guide for people interested in actually doing suspensions.
