"There's a good chance you've had the "sex talk" with your parents. Or not. Or learned about human reproduction in health class. Or maybe you've heard a lot about dating, sex, and relationships from friends, movies, and surfing online. So you are all set, right? Maybe.... But everything you think you know and everything you really want to know is inside this book."

Written for teen boys, Dating and Sex provides them with the knowledge they need to understand dating, relationships, and sex. It goes beyond basic descriptions of biological processes with a progressive, practical approach that relies on secular ethics and emphasizes sexual health and personal responsibility.

The book addresses common questions like:
  • What's a hook-up?
  • How do I know if someone likes me?
  • Can I masturbate too much?
  • How do I know if I am ready for sex?
  • How do I know what my sexual orientation is?
  • Why is it important to get and give consent?
  • ​How can I make a relationship last for more than a couple days?
The perfect book for helping teen boys understand both themselves and the complexity of the sexual world around them.

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.

If you have further questions, please email us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com!
