This version of “the talk” emphasizes that sexuality is your birthright, and it develops over a lifetime.
In this beautiful and insightful children’s book, a loving Grandma tells you everything you need to know about sex. Filled with stunning mixed-media illustrations and amazing advice for all-ages, this is one book that is sure to help you get through The Talk!
Patiently forthcoming with lessons your parents redacted, this necessary conversation stresses consent, sex positivity, and the right to be curious about your body. The dialogue focuses on the dynamics of sex, rather than the mechanics, as Grandma reminds readers that sex is not marriage or reproduction, and doesn’t look the same for everyone. Instead, each person’s sexuality is their very own to discover, explore, and share if they choose.
Anastasia Higginbotham’s essays have appeared in Ms., Bitch, Glamour, The Sun, The Women’s Review of Books, and in the anthologies Listen Up, 33 Things Every Girl Should Know About Women’s History, and Yes Means Yes. She is the author and illustrator of a series of feminist children’s books, Ordinary Terrible Things, which deals with common childhood crises and how children themselves find their own way to cope and grow.

Straight Talk About Sex After Sixty
Better Than I Ever Expected is a warm, witty, and honest book that contends with the challenges and celebrates the delights of older-life sexuality. It asserts that women over sixty are at the top of their game when it comes to enjoying sex.
Joan Price’s straight talk transcends the self-help style of other books in this field. Yes, there are challenges to sex after menopause and beyond, says Price, but there are also creative solutions. She is on a mission to let women her age and older know that they can, in fact, have the best sex of their lives.
Price gets personal and stays positive, combining her own story with candid comments, tips, and sassy tales from sexually seasoned women. She also acknowledges the gritty issues that older women confront in their sexual lives, noting that it’s not easy, but it certainly isn’t over.
