More About the Author

A recognized expert on sexuality and relationships, Dr. Logan Levkoff encourages honest conversation about sexuality and the role it plays in American culture. Logan makes it clear that sex and sexuality are not "dirty" words; she works to create an environment where people feel comfortable asking (and getting answers to) their most personal questions. Logan empowers children, adolescents, and adults to embrace their sexuality and challenge the impractical, and often unhealthy, messages that they are exposed to.

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.

Logan Levkoff is an AASECT certified sex educator. She received her Ph.D. in Human Sexuality, Marriage, and Family Life Education from New York University and an M.S. in Human Sexuality Education and a B.A. in English from the University of Pennsylvania. She lives in New York City with her husband, son, and daughter.

As a godparent to several kids but with none of my own, I was very excited to read this book. Levkoff gives advice to adults on how to make kids feel comfortable with themselves and the fact that sexuality is part of our humanity from the time that kids are infants to when they are teens struggling to make the right decisions. The strongest aspect of this book is that it reminds parents and other adults who are important in a child's life that it is up to us to help kids make healthy choices and decisions about sexuality, and she gives us the tools to help us do so. No topic is left unexplored - from oral sex to abortion, it is all in there. Levkoff's sense of humor makes it an easy read and also hopefully will set the tone for any future conversations I may have with people who look to me for help. It's a great and important resource for anyone who cares about helping kids grow up safe, healthy, and happy.

Third base sure aint what it used to be. I am now a grandmother and have both young grandchildren and teenagers. Third base is a great reference guide that helps me stay current with our teenage granddaughters and gandsons. It is a challenging world to grow up in and this book helps me to know how to communicate from todays world.

This is truly a breath of fresh air! As a mother of two girls on the cusp of their teenage years, this book couldn't have come at a better time. Logan - thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so candid about these sensitive topics. My girlfriends and I have already chosen Third Base Ain't What It Used to Be as our next book for bookclub. Hope this is the first of many - can't wait to read more.

I was very impressed with the mountain of information presented, yet it was not overwhelming or scary. Logan is precise without burdening a parent with too much information.

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.

Format: Paperback
This book brings a refreshing and honest portrayal of what kids do, don't, and want to know and how we, as parents, can openly and honestly discuss "taboo" topics.

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.

Format: Kindle Edition
Not so much a how-to book on sexual education for your kids but thought provoking with several important things NOT to do. Great perspective on how things have changed since we were teens. Sound, scientific, and sex-positive advice and information for parents who should be educating their children to make healthy and ethical decisions when the time comes. Parents should not let their schools, churches, or the Internet be responsible for their children's sexual education. Not an easy subject to discuss with our kids but very necessary. Abstinence only programs don't cut it. Kids need fact based information to make healthy informed choices.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book, which not only teaches sex education, but teaches us what we all should know about our own bodies. It should be read by everyone, not just parents. I have been a childbirth educator for many, many years and have come across women who are pregnat or have given birth, and still do not know what they should about their bodies. Thank you Logan.
