I only have a four yr old, but i'm a psychotherapist and have a client who is an inexperienced 18 yr old with out guidance. She is curious and wants to read a book about sex, sexuality, developing bodies, etc. Anyone have any good recommendations? Preferably one that is lesbian, gay, bisexual friendly?

What's Happening to My Body? Book for girls: A growing up guide for parents and daughters by Lynda Madaras. there is now also a workbook available. it's awesome and very nonjudgemental.

Are you looking for a book for teens or adults? The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex and the Guide to Getting It On are both great books, but they cover everything from the basic anatomy to anything you would want info about, and very gay/lesbian/bi friendly.

Our Bodies, Ourselves is very queer friendly.
