I am 56 years old. When I was growing up my mother, who was a widow, never ever discussed sex or anything related to sex with me. I did get help however from the first edition of “Our Bodies, Our Selves.” It was a groundbreaking book for its time and I have tried and tried but cannot find my first copy, which I kept for years. Just know that your work was wonderful for young women then and now. Keep up the good work.
