This is a companion volume to the author's book entitled "Attaining Manhood," recently published. It provides a brief discussion of the human reproductive system and the reproductive cycle, followed by considerations of sex attraction and sex conduct. It is a book which will be found somewhat advanced for younger girls but which will, at the same time, be exceedingly useful for parents who wish to discuss these matters suitably with their children.
