Format: Paperback
This book is required reading for some High School Freshman. It instructs children on Bondage and
Sex Toys usage. If there ever has been a need for parents to be directly involved in their kids education, this is it.
No wonder Amazon has no link to read excerpts online.

I took a half-semester health course and used this book. I only rented it since I wouldn't be using it for long, and didn't run into any problems with Amazon. However, the instructor required us to fill out some of the appendices in the back, which are perforated to be ripped out. I didn't want to cause problems for future renters, so I just scanned sheets and printed them out separately, but if you'll likely want to write in the book or use the worksheets, I would buy it.
