Lanae St.John is one of my go-to sources for helpful and accurate information about how to navigate sexuality, consent, and boundaries with teens and young adults. She brings wit and compassion to challenging situations, which a lot of people struggle with. I'm excited that "Raising Sex Smart Kids" will be a resource I can send my clients to, and I know that lots of other sexuality coaches and educators are, too.

Parents want to provide their kids with sex-positive information and resources, and they also want to be role models for empowered sexuality. The problem is that there are so few resources that take a holistic, accessible approach to talking to your kids about sex. Lanae St. John’s book is a creative, comprehensive, compassionate guide that I can’t wait to give to all the parents I know!

Lanae St.John has the knowledge to answer any questions about sex kids (and their parents) may have and she is savvy and sensitivity to leave everyone comfortable, confident, and able to continue the conversation. Lanae doesn't simply have conversations about sex, she normalizes conversations about sex.

There is simply no one more knowledgeable, learned, and expert on the important topic of speaking to children about sex than Lanae St.John. With great respect for how individuals choose to raise their children, Lanae modernizes and elucidates the subject without preaching or condemning, but instead with humor, inspiration and skill.

The challenges with parenting experts is that they often don’t know a whole lot about healthy, sexual relationships and techniques around physical intimacy. The MamaSutra (Lanae St.John) is one of the delightfully powerful exceptions to this trend. Lanae is a parenting expert that actually knows a thing or two about sex and can teach and empower men and women in accessible ways. Her approach is down to earth and relatable—something that is vitally important in a topic where most parents panic—and she uses examples from pop culture that resonate with her audiences. Lanae is a no-brainer choice for who you would go to if your kid asks you a sex question and you can’t answer it. Best of all, Lanae walks her talk and actually lives her approach with her own kids in an exemplary way. She’s a great role model for how to be a sex-positive parent in a non-threatening way.
