    Moralising, didactic, surprisingly conservative, misleading, surprisingly heteronormative with some not-so-subtle tired internalised biphobia ‘I have found that bisexuality has become a trend for women of all ages.’ The queer rep when it comes seems misunderstanding and unaware of asexuals who have sex, aromatics who have sex, and nonbinary folk.

    When I picked up Laid: Young People’s Experiences with Sex in an Easy-Access Culture I was excited to see how editor Shannon T. Boodram handled the interesting topic of teen sexuality. Boodram is more a dictator than an editor in this book, interjecting her own opinions and observations throughout the collection of young people’s first hand accounts of their experiences

    The world needed this book and it was fantastic! Editor Shannon Boodram masterfully melded the stories from her own life as well as others to give various perspectives on sex. I loved the organization of the book in general, with regards to topics. I wasn't as big a fan of the questionnaires at the end that involve your self-reflection after reading a chapter.

    As a 28 year old woman this book isn't for me, but I think it's a very important read for young people just starting to explore sex. It would be a perfect replacement for the parental sex talk since we all know that goes nowhere. Just give them this book instead

    An informative and engaging compilation of initial sexual experiences.

    Boodram is thorough and the authors are all brave to share their stories.

    Laid is an anthology of personal stories about young people's experiences with sex, be it first times, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy, rape, love and everything in between. It has the very important element of person stories and emotions that are missing from the sexual education people receive. The introduction of emotion and personal stories made it for me, so much more impor

  10. says:

    Laid purports to be a frank conversation about sex, but it leans towards the conservative. One chapter describes sex for pleasure. The rest of the book is sex regret, rape, sexually transmitted diseases, and it conveniently ends with a chapter on abstinence.
