Reasons to read… Doing It!: Let’s Talk About Sex by Hannah Witton

Figuring out how to build and maintain healthy relationships – with your family, friends, romantically and with yourself – is a crucial part of being a teen. It’s not easy though, particularly in a digital age where information and advice are so forthcoming it can be hard to know who or what to believe or trust. Porn is everywhere, sexting is the norm and messages about body image are highly mixed.

Hannah combats this by tackling subjects ranging from masturbation and puberty to slut shaming and consent in an accessible, relatable and extremely honest way. She is unembarrassed about bringing little-discussed topics into the open, and as such empowers teens to have the confidence to conduct relationships on their terms, and in a way that they feel comfortable with.

How did I get the book? Received from publisher

Genre: Nonfiction

Reasons to read:

  • Informative and entertaining
  • Hannah Witton is not condescending to her readers and this book is pitched well, just because it has ‘marketed at’-age doesn’t mean it’s not useful for others.
  • Really enjoyed Hannah’s voice which shines throughout the book, it feels like you’re having a conversation with her instead of reading information.
