Most of us want to be decent people in the world. Yet when it comes to sex, we so often stumble and contribute to sexual injustice. Think about it: are we really still blaming victims of sexual assaults? Can it truly be that there is a gender-based orgasm gap? Are we actually labeling people based on the kind of sex they do or don't have? Why do we insist on questioning if sex is consensual when someone's passed out drunk?

Our society is undergoing an evolution, and we should take this as a call to action to ensure that all people, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, ethnicity, race, religion, or social class, are treated as humans worthy of respect.

Good Sexual Citizenship asks us all to break down sexual hostility and build up something better. To promote understanding and empathy, author Ellen Friedrichs includes a factual and historical backdrop covering gender disparities, women's rights, sexual violence, prevention, and sex education, and challenges readers to use this insight, along with guided exercises, to examine their own potential for "good sexual citizenship." Covering topics like consent, sexual assault, pleasure, double standards, casual sex, hook-up culture, and teen sex, she provides readers with tools to navigate societal messages, sexually hostile climates, stereotypes, and outdated mentalities.

This book is written for anyone — but especially the educators, the parents, the fellow students, the coworkers, the employers — who have helplessly looked around in the midst of some type of sexual injustice wondering, "what can I do?"
