The Approachable and Knowledgeable Adult

We get asked all the time to recommend sexual health resources and there are no shortage of great choices available! Here’s a list of our current favourite books. Many are available to borrow through your local libraries and also to purchase through booksellers. If you have a title, you’d like to add, please let us know as we’re always on the lookout for awesome resources.
