Ph.D. candidate and Kinsey Confidential blogger Bradley Blankenship recommends Jeffrey P. Moran’s Teaching Sex: The Shaping of Adolescence in the 20th Century:

“an accessible history that traces the development of sex education over the past 100 years.  Starting with G Stanley Hall’s invention of ‘adolescence’ in 1904 it explores political and social influences that dictated what should be taught and who should be teaching it up until the late 1990s. I not only found the book engaging but also entertaining. A must read for anyone interested in teaching sex education.”
