“Sex education is a right for teenagers and it must be egalitarian,” pleads Julia Pietri, author of Gang du Clit.

A changing body. Growing hair. And questions about sexual identity, gender, and even masturbation. Welcome to adolescence. It is not always easy to find simple and reliable answers to one’s intimate questions.

Inside Sex Pussy Little Guide – Volume 2 (Edit. Better Call Julia), this Friday in the bookstore, author Julia Petri, creator of the Instagram account @ gangduclito, answered all the questions teenagers could cross and 20 minutes.

There are already sex education guidelines. Why write one for teens and what makes it stand out?

I decided that the guide I would like to get my hands on was when I was a teenager and I checked into adolescence. In my time, the information was quite rare: I think I received a sex education guide as a gift for teens and searched for “masturbation”, the only thing written was: “It doesn’t make you deaf”, as if it were ‘not a real thing’ .

This book is designed to help you pass a course, reduce all restrictions, and allow all teens in 2022 to find answers to the questions they ask about the body – their own and others’, adolescence, sex, for the first time, a scientific method. , And without body sex. At the same time, it is not a book focused on hygiene, prevention and danger. To explain that adolescence can be a great time in life, the bias is to offer content that is extremely rewarding and reassuring.

There is a time when we ask ourselves many questions about our identity, gender and when we are confronted with many commands and preconceptions about sex …

Absolutely! I have a militant background, I am a feminist and to breathe this spirit into this book, it was essential to make it a tool of egalitarian sex education. This includes distorting the notions obtained and dispelling myths that have a detrimental effect on sexuality. Women have long been taught that it is through the pain of sexual intercourse that the first pain occurs. This is a misconception that many women find it very difficult to restore their desires and happiness. Because no, that’s not normal. Similarly penetration during sexual intercourse is not mandatory. Conventional discourse has an order to satisfy men’s desires and women’s pleasure is often denied. Gender equality also involves equality of pleasure and information, talking about orgasm, consent, rules or body hair.

It is in this notion that physiological boards are presented in the same way, in order to break down the notion of a strong sex and the image of the only sex among the other weak and emerging ones. You should not forget about the clitoris! Because everyone has erectile organs. Promoting physiological equality in body presentation helps to change the mindset.

Teenagers often do not dare to ask, how do you find the right tone to solve these questions?

To build a link with teens who will read this guide and give them confidence, I will be a little more open about the complexities and questions I had at their age. It shows that this is a universal measure, that everyone can be complicated. I, I am pleading for a popular culture, for flexible education. Today, in the age of social networks and a kind of elite feminism of knowledge, the idea of ​​transition is no more, we are immediately in a coma. Adopts a simple and unobtrusive tone, incorporates all the identities in the text, and those who do not fully understand these questions find the answers.

This is why there are sourcing pages so that they can go further and get information in a safe and reliable way. There is a link between both family planning and QR codes that link to well-designed videos about consent or condom use, created by serious Youtubers that young people know well, to adapt to their contact codes.

The idea is to make both of them a support for oneself, where one can take refuge alone, at this age when one is released. But a vector of communication with speech.

The first volume of this guide aims at 4-year-olds and the second aims at 12- to 16-year-olds. What about those who think they are too young to talk about sex?

Volume 1 is for children, but above all for parents, to help them find the right words and melodies to answer their “pu pu” questions and to talk about anatomy, nudity, taboos, as well as emotion and brotherhood. Creating a dialogue and making the child feel comfortable talking.

For teens, you need to be aware of the reality: Today in 2022, most 12-year-olds have already seen porn at least once and for a long time. Without necessarily entering into sex, they have already entered into a – perverted – representation of sex. The idea of ​​this guide is to provide information and reflection tools to support them both in their construction and in constructing the ideas they have already been able to absorb.

So it’s important to explain to them what their rights, consent, culture of rape is: all these basic things, which touch patriarchy and which we rarely talk about, because we lack feminist and activist education. But sex education is a right.
