    Book synopsis: Sex education is one of those topics that seems to pop up in the news as a ‘current affairs’ issue on an almost seasonal basis. Young boys becoming fathers, statistics about teenage pregnancy, outbreaks of sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs), the nanny state, single mothers, feral youth, cycles of poverty, moral decay – they can all lead to a heated rehashing of arguments about sex education. Identified in crude ways as a ‘soft target’ and an ‘easy fix’ solution for a host of ‘social problems’, we are told that there is too much of it and, at the same time, that there isn’t enough of it, and that it should start earlier.
