Do you remember when you first read “Our Bodies, Ourselves”? Tell us your story!

I teach OWL (Our Whole Lives, a sexuality education curricula) and at the end of each session, we give each participant a copy of “Our Bodies, Ourselves.” What that means is priceless. It means the seven months we volunteered teaching youth will now be refreshed everytime they open that book. They will remember that sex can be positive and something that is to be treasured and enjoyed when the time is right. That if they have questions, we are empowering them with factual and age appropriate information in class and it is confirmed in OBOS.

OBOS means so much to me, but for our youth, it means so much more. Congrats on 40!!! It sure is fabulous!

In this series, readers tell their stories about their experiences with the book and its impact on their lives. You can view more stories and submit your own.
