This is an informative title that takes on a delicate subject from the perspective of guys. St. Stephen's also published a book for girls and the boys wanted their turn. The result is a frank discussion about sex and relationships. There is practical information that boys will appreciate as well as a balance of info on safe sex. (Audra Osorio INFOLINK 2009-02-05)
A good concept which boys can easily relate to. (Christie Peterson INFOLINK 2010-06-30)
In this collective effort young men from St. Stephen's Community House in Toronto have written responsible one or two page short essays on a wide range of sex-related topics, from wet dreams to masturbation, HIV and condom use. This effective guy-to-guy approach makes words-of-wisdom pieces like "Five ways to ruin a relationship", "First time", "What to do when your friend comes out", or "The day I became a father" especially effective. Original artwork and drawings enhance the presentation. Also find an excellent glossary and an extensive list of helpful, related web links organized by chapter. Middle school and high school boys will find this accessible, reader-friendly book; buy several copies for it will surely walk. (MaryBeth DiPrima INFOLINK 2010-06-30)
Following in the footsteps of The Little Black Book for Girlz (also available from Annick Press) this book was written by guys for guys about that most unmentionable topic: their own sexuality. This book delivers straight information in today's language in short, browsable pieces written by young men, covering all aspects of sex and relationships including the physical, emotional and practical. There is nothing cute or embarrassed about this book--it's like a trusted friend or mentor is sitting down and explaining everything a guy needs to know in order to make informed decisions about a healthy sex life. The result is an honest, forthright discussion about topics that young people need to know about but for which they may have a difficult time accessing up-to-date and complete information. Both Little Black Books have come out of St. Stephen's Community House, a community-based social service agency in Toronto, and have been vetted by health professionals for accuracy.

A down-to-earth guide to a topic of vital importance... Purchasing this book would indeed be a smart decision. (Foreword Reviews 2012-09-01)
