LAS VEGAS — Sexologist, author and radio host Dr. TaMara Griffin has announced the release of her new book, “It’s Not the Birds and the Bees, It’s Sex,” due out in early August.
Griffin is editor-in-chief of Our Sexuality! Magazine and the host of “The Dr. TaMara Radio Show.” Her new book encourages parents to have a sex-positive outlook and offers advice on ways for parents to educate their kids when it comes to sexuality.
“It’s time for a counter-message,” Griffin said. “Regardless of whether the conversation is awkward or not, these conversations must take place. Despite the uncomfortable feelings, parents and other trusted adults need to rise to the occasion because children are desperately in need of true, comprehensive, developmentally-appropriate, medically accurate, inclusive, culturally competent information about sexuality. Your guidance is important. It will help them learn how to make healthier and safer, informed decisions about sexuality. It will also help to empower them with knowledge, skills and tools that will increase the quality of their life and can even potentially save their life.”
Griffin is an active member of the American College of Sexologists International and a national correspondent for the Association of Black Sexologist and Clinicians.
