I was mortified by my health classes in high school, too mortified to pay attention or ask the questions that weren’t being answered. About halfway though the summer after my junior year, I very sneakily checked Hooking Up out of the library. I was embarrassed. I had no reason to be, but I was. There had to be something wrong with me, because shouldn’t I intiutively know the answers to my weird questions about sex? It’s a natural thing right? I felt like a freak for even having questions in the first place.
But I went home and I read all the way through Hooking Up and the entire time I felt waves of relief. My questions were being answered, I wasn’t a freak for wanting to know—god damn it—there was nothing wrong with me.
If you are looking for answers about sex, you are not going to find them in an erotic novel. You are going to find them in a book like the two you see above (Hooking Up by Amber Madison, and The Dirt on Sex by Justin Lookadoo and Hayley Morgan.) I don’t have a cute story about The Dirt on Sex but it’s just as helpful as Hooking Up, and will be helpful for guys too.
So please, if you are curious or just need to know something, don’t go to weird forums and for the love of God, don’t go to Fifty Shades of Grey. Check out one of these books.
