Dr. Joycelyn Elders, 15th U.S. Surgeon General – “We have waited for a long time for a manual such as ORIENTATION for the education of our society. I think it is appropriate to be used by sexuality education classes in a variety of settings. To change attitudes about what constitutes healthy sexuality requires education, education, education!”
Konstance McCaffree, PhD President, American Association for Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists – “Wow! So many excellent lessons to choose from. It will be hard to select just ONE, so hopefully many lessons may be used with students.”
Brian McNaught Author and Educator “The godfather of gay diversity training,” New York Times – “This most valuable, comprehensive collection of exercises designed to enable others to better understand the many facets of sexual orientation and gender authenticity, reflects years and years of thoughtful study and practice. These lessons effectively enable others to feel competent and confident in addressing LGBTQ issues.”

Roffman Author, Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become Your Kids’ “Go-To” Person about Sex – “I am simply blown away by the depth, sophistication, and comprehensiveness of what you’ve put together in ORIENTATION.
