I gave each of them a copy along with this note:
"Mom and I are giving you this book, and the notes here, so that you have a great source of factual information about sex and relationships all in one place.
"We know you have had quite a bit of "sex ed" already at school, but there is always more to learn, and after looking around, we think this is one of the best resources. It goes well beyond what school teaching offers, and does a better job than I could even in hours of conversation. It's not easy for parents to talk to kids about sex, so this book at least gets the right information out to you and then opens the door for questions and discussion, whenever you want. I have been married once before and was in various other relationships, so I know a lot about this stuff and I want you to know I am totally open to questions and discussion, any time.
"Mom and I like this book because it's really straightforward and very complete, and also free of any judgmental or moralistic viewpoints. Mom and I both think that's the best approach. You have both been raised to be good and moral persons, so you will use your own "gut" (and advice from us, whenever you want it), to choose what you think is right for yourself and the people close to you.
"Giving you this book is not a substitute for talking about these issues whenever we want or need to. In the meantime, here are some tips on sections that we think you should definitely read ..."
From there I went on to highlight the "must read" sections (safe sex, contraception, consent, etc) and told them we would talk about these.
It's a great book and offers comprehensive information in a matter-of-fact, adult manner and in a format that's easy to flip through to find what you're looking for.
My daughter and I actually had three books out during a discussion about sex and birth control and we ended up always looking at this book because it was much better than the others.
The one thing this book had a BIG miss on was on the topic of Sexting. It had one paragraph describing it but no mention of the legal and social dangers and risks of sending videos and photos via SMS/email. This is a big deal in the area we live in with 12 teenage boys recently being arrested for distributing photos. Would have liked to see more information about this to warn kids about potential concerns.
My hubs did thumb through the book before I gave it to my daughter. He looked a little green around the edges at some of the items included, but did not balk at handing it over. I'm sure he didn't want to have to discuss or answer any questions related to those topics. Hah!
