Judith Levine's controversial book challenges American attitudes towards child and adolescent sexuality - especially attitudes promulgated by a Christian right that has effectively seized control of how sex is taught in public schools. The author - a thoughtful and persuasive journalist and essayist - examines the consequences of 'abstinence' only education and its concomitant association of sex with disease, and the persistent denial of pleasure. She notes the trend toward pathologizing young children's eroticized play and argues that Americans should rethink the boundaries we draw in protecting our children from sex. This powerful and illuminating work was nominated for the 2003 Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
