Sex Education Beyond The Fig Leaves by Joan Nelson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As the cover warns, there is fundamental knowledge hidden by the fig leaf cover-up: the culture-wide conspiracy of shame that makes us think we can't tell the truth about this touchy subject. At last! A forthright, urgently needed-and understandable-philosophy dares a heads-up uncovering of tough stuff: pedophilia, the incest-avoidance factor, age-of-consent and molestation. This no-nonsense approach to sex education, religion and culture is progressive, edgy-and tasteful-as it contemplates the evolutionary connectedness and integrity of the whole. It regards kids of all ages (think about it) as "temporary collections of genes." Such evolutionary awareness generates a child-rearing philosophy based on the "law of natural consequences." (Sometimes, parental intervention must be the natural consequence.) The book distinguishes inner morality from outer ethics. Dysfunctional shame from functional shame. Non-judgmentalism from good judgment. With the help of cultural mythology-from classic children's stories and holy scriptures to current politics and entertainment-the author writes with wisdom, empathy, and grown-up humor.
