From the Introduction:
The language around sex and sexuality is so important. There are a lot of words, from anatomy to psychology to culturally evolving words. If you don't know the definition of a word, don't let this intimidate you. Many of the chapters start with defining words that are important to that particular topic; if you come across a word that you don't know that isn't defined in the book, just do a quick Internet search for it. The language around sexuality, particularly as it applies to identity, is changing quickly. If there are words about identity that feel outdated, replace them with words that resonate for you.
