Silver Medal Honors in the EUREKA! Excellence in Children's Nonfiction Award


Addressing teen boys, this book shares the knowledge needed to understanding healthy relationships, dating, and sex. More than just descriptions of biology, a practical approach based on secular ethics emphasizes sexual health and personal responsibility. Dating and Sex is an easy-to-read, funny, and insightful book that is chock-full of information and advice to help teen boys get ready for the world of dating, relationships, and sex.
This book is a how-to guide to become a responsible and mature relational and sexual being.


Even though Dating and Sex is written especially for young men, it is filled with practical, invaluable wisdom for readers of all ages and both genders…Highly recommended, for public and school library collections, and a 'must-read' for teenagers everywhere.

Midwest Book Review

There is so much misunderstanding about adolescent male sexuality and about adolescent males, so much that there is a distance between who boys actually are and who we think they are. Dating and Sex goes a long way towards sensitizing the reader to normal adolescent male development without making it scary or deviant. Parents may wish to read it as well to better understand the adolescent males in their life. This is a great resource for psychologists and counselors, too.

As a father (4 boys and 1 girl) and grandfather (10 boys and 5 girls), I can't think of a better book for young men and women or for their parents. As a psychotherapist who specializes in men's issues, I also highly recommend Dating and Sex: A Guide for the 21st Century Teen Boy. There are few books that are accurate, accessible, and fun to read. I recommend it highly to all.
