Publisher's Summary

Why do we find sexuality so, well...scary?

Comedian Mae Martin investigates in this hilarious and intelligent guide to 21st-century sexuality. Covering everything from the pros and cons of labels to coming out and the joys of sexual fluidity, Mae ponders all the stuff we get hung up about - and then a bit more. 

Mae's mission is to ensure that in a world that's full of things to worry about, who we choose to kiss should not be one of them. And when it comes to sexuality, she asks: can everyone please calm down?

A fantastic gender and sexuality intro

This is the gender and sexuality book every teenager should get.
Mae Martin's voice is kind, funny and sensible. She covers a lot of important information inclusively and accurately (as far as my geeky knowledge of the subject goes). She also quotes Meg-John Barker extensively which is always a good thing.
I can only imagine the positive and healing effect it will have on young people grappling with the messy gender and sexuality jungle we all live in and looking for their own identity.
Its mere existence fills me with hope.

An essential 21st Century Book

This book is firstly so easy to read, it flows so easily that I could happily - and probably will - read this every week.I believe at the heart of a lot of prejudice is simply a lack of understanding. The sooner those who continue to make hurtful comments, realise that there isn't a nasty agenda behind LGBT+ rights, society will be a lot nicer. We need this book to become part of the curriculum, and now!
