More About the Author
As a thought leader in the field of human sexuality, Logan frequently appears on television including Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Rachael Ray Show, Oprah, Fox News Channel, and CNN. Logan is a trusted source for publications such as Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, Esquire, and Men's Health and has penned sex columns for Fit Pregnancy, POZ magazine, American Health and Fitness, Ellegirl.com, MarieClaire.com, and The Sexual Health Network. Currently, Logan writes columns for Good In Bed, Maximum Fitness, and blogs for The Huffington Post and Dodson and Ross.
Logan is dedicated to perpetuating healthy and positive messages about sexuality. She speaks on a wide range of issues, including sexual health and sexuality education, trends in sexuality, relationship hurdles, and the role of sexuality in pop culture and politics. For over a decade, Logan has been teaching groups of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. She has designed and implemented sexuality education programs, faculty development, and parent education in many secular and religious independent schools, universities, medical schools, and community organizations. Logan's work with teens and parents has been profiled in numerous publications, including The New York Times.
Logan is the author of Third Base Ain't What it Used to Be: What Your Kids are Learning About Sex Today and How to Teach Them to Become Sexually Healthy Adults (NAL/Penguin, October 2007), which helps parents to understand the role sexuality plays in their children's lives and empowers parents to become better at-home sexuality educators. Her latest book, How to Get Your Wife to Have Sex with You (Good in Bed Publications, October 2011) is a digital guide for men (and their wives) who are looking to enhance their intimate life. Other than sleeping or actually having sex, reading the book is probably the most productive thing a couple can do together in bed.
Logan has been a spokesperson for Trojan and Trojan Vibrations, serves on the Trojan Sexual Health Advisory Council, and has sat on the Board of Advisors for WET Productions, Maximum Fitness and Parenting Teens Online. She also wrote "The Espresso Dating Guide" (a joint project between Starbucks and Yahoo! Personals), was the relationship expert for Bertolli's "Dinner and Your Movie" campaign, Tupperware's "Chain of Confidence" and "Relationship Reboot" programs, and is a spokesperson for Sealy's "Whatever You Do in Bed..." campaign.

Levkoff gives the facts, she is straightforward and her book is easy to read. Most importantly, she helps you teach your children about sex according to your values. What parent could ask for anything more?
I strongly urge you to go out and get Third Base Ain't What it Used to Be. It's worth your time.
I truly appreciate the candor of this book and found the anecdotes completely relatable to my situation; a parent raising children in today's "loose" society. Its about time somebody sheds light, through personal experiences, on what (and how) our kids are learning about sex and sexuality. Although I am only on Chapter Four, so far this book has given me a framework for talking to my kids about these important issues.
It's rather scary to think who may be raising our kids (with all of the sensational sex-centric shows on television not to mention our celebrity role models) if we as parents aren't. Thanks to Logan for helping parents teach kids some of the most important lessons they'll ever need to learn.
