[Facts about Sex for Today's Youth, a revised edition of Facts about Sex: A Basic Guide, is] hardly substantial enough to merit reprinting. The insufficiency of detail is indicated by the suggestion that "Girls who want to know more about menstruation should write for free literature …" and the limits of Gordon's frankness are reached when he says that "ball, jump, go down and screw are also used as impolite ways of referring to sexual intercourse" without ever alluding to that most popular impolite word of all.
