Sol Gordon's Facts about VD, like his Facts about Sex, is designed for older teens who may be experienced but not knowledgeable, and who are not readers by inclination or ability. Without wasting a single word, he lays out the basics about understanding and preventing the transmission of the love diseases. In this edition there is an expanded description of herpes, a new emphasis on oral and anal VD, some new pictures, a few updated statistics …, and new resource lists. Gordon has also added a page strongly advising teens to seek medical help every time they have sex without a condom. (p. 327)
