Since 2008, authors Miller and Bley have held an open call for young people to create comics that address a variety of topics involved with sex education. They have since produced several issues of a sex-ed comic called Not Your Mother's Meatloaf. The work is chosen from a vastly varied group of submissions and attempts to challenge hetero and gender normative practices in sex education. This book brings together the best of the material from the Not Your Mother's Meatloaf comics, along with new graphic stories and writing by the editors providing personal and sociological background.
These graphically illustrated personal narratives address different themes, such as "Firsts," "Bodies," "Health," "Age," and "Endings." Want real facts combined with a refreshing lack of lecturing and a wide array of perspectives on often-neglected topics in sex education like body image, queerness, and consent, as well as the usual stuff like puberty, and staying healthy and in charge of your reproductive choices? This book does it all and then some.
