"VERDICT Exciting, enlightening, and innovative, this book addresses timeless questions about sex for a new generation of kids who are increasingly aware of the broad spectrum of gender and sexual identities."

Public representations of sex tend to the extremes: it's either the worst or the best. But what about all the sex we have that's neither. What about the sex that's just good enough?

From Andee Hochman's review:

While universities and even some high schools wrestle with how to convey that “yes means yes,” Silverberg once again distills a complicated idea — affirmative consent — into terms a grade-schooler can understand. “One way to show respect and build trust is to ask before you touch someone,” he writes. “Everyone has times when they want to be touched and other times when they do not want to be touched. And everyone has times when they change their mind.”
Read <em>Sex Is a Funny Word</em>, no matter your age, whether or not you have children. Because Cory Silverberg’s radical and urgent message — sexuality with a side of social justice — is badly needed.

That sounds as if you are bipolar. Instead of worrying about how to perform fellatio you should be visiting your doctor. Accidentally ended up at this site. Hope you get the help you need. Will not see your response
So good luck in all your future endeavors.
