Sex Plus: Learning, Loving, and Enjoying Your Body (Hardcover)
This groundbreaking book from sex educator and YouTube phenomenon Laci Green has everything you’ve ever wanted to know about sex, sexuality, pleasure, and your body.
Let’s be honest: most of us think about sex A LOT, and we have plenty of unanswered questions: What’s the best way to talk to my partner about what I want? How do I figure out my sexuality? How do I have sex safely? What does an orgasm actually feel like?
Laci Green—a sex educator and YouTuber who’s been hailed by Time magazine as the millennial Dr. Ruth—has built a platform of millions of followers by answering sex-related questions frankly, nonjudgmentally, and hilariously.
Now Laci brings her signature style and voice to a comprehensive book about the multitude of issues and concerns that go along with sexuality: anatomy, consent, LGBTQ issues, STI and pregnancy prevention, sexual empowerment, healthy relationships, myth-busting, and more.
Sex Plus is the first book of its kind: empowering, sex-positive, and cool. Comprehensive, honest, and vetted by a range of medical experts, this book will help you take control of your sex life.
After all, knowledge is pleasure.

“Green tackles serious issues of sexual violence, consent, and stigma with clarity and integrity while bringing humor and camaraderie to a strikingly broad discussion of sexuality.” — Publishers Weekly
“[Laci shares] her views on the meaning behind sex positivity, next candidly discussing menstruation, masturbation, gender identity, and safer sex, as well as issues of sexual exploration, kink, and forming relationships …. Diagrams, charts, and infographics vary the presentation style.” — Publishers Weekly
“Internet personality and debut author Green gives readers a jam-packed guide to human sexuality. Initial information about anatomy and a brief stopover in identity-based questions soon transition to the nitty-gritty of sex, relationships, and related topics, including consent culture (possibly the most interesting section) and kink.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Got a question about BDSM? Wondering how gender is constructed globally? What about sexting and dating apps? Coercion culture? This book has it all… Green offers a conversational tone that avoids shaming and instead focuses on the realities and pleasure of sex.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
