This week a selection of links about that perennially fascinating subject: sex! And no, there's nothing here your teenage daughter shouldn't to read, and it is all essentially safe for work: no nasty pictures!
Emily at Emily Nagoski : Sex Nerd has an interesting perspective on the events of last weekend. Everything from the Royal Wedding to the death of Osama bin Laden, it's all to do with sex.
Bish! is a UK-based information site about sex and relationships for young people (like teenagers). They recently posted a weblog item about Talking about Sex with Teens. Now I'm not a parent, but the article (and indeed the whole site) strikes me as extremely useful. They also publish information packs and there's a section on the site specifically for parents and carers.
Earlier this week the Wall Street Journal so far forgot itself as to run an article on Researching the Health Benefits of Sex. Yes, it is about doing the research, but it also contains lots of information about how sexual response works etc. It's worth a read.
Finally something to bring a smile to your face (and elsewhere!). Apparently May is Masturbation Month. No, I wouldn't have known either but for Cory Silverberg pointing it out over at About.com.
