★ “What makes this sex-ed title stand out is the up-to-the-minute dialogue around age-old concerns combined with discussions about broader concepts…Gariépy’s radiant, curvy, stylized digital graphics are a perfect fit for the body-positive text…Non-judgemental, trustworthy, and savvy, Bernier is the counsellor we all wished we had access to in high school.”—Quill & Quire, starred review


From A to Z, Naked: Not Your Average Sex Encyclopedia is an inclusive guide to sexuality for teens.

The 150 entries cover key ideas about identity, relationships, self-image, sex and body positivity—and no topic is taboo. From bisexuality to Kamasutra to #MeToo, Naked offers answers to questions about sexuality that teens have always had but have been afraid to ask. What is consent? What does gender fluid mean? What kind of contraception should I use? With contemporary examples, vibrant illustrations and additional information and resources for young readers with more questions, Naked is essential reading for today's teens.

“Lives up to its name and also doesn’t speak down to its audience. I whole-heartedly recommend this title for the inquisitive and curious teens in your life, and for adults as well if they want to learn about concepts that are not often covered in other resources for teens. Highly Recommended.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Attractive, lighthearted...A validating tome that will spark an interest in further learning.”

“Spunky…Filled with encouraging language and imagery to reassure teens that there is no such thing as normal, right, or wrong when it comes to consensual human interactions.”
