Damaged Goods? – by Adina Nack

STDsWhat other people said about this book:

“Damaged Goods? easily brings to life the reality of STDs in a way that so many other educational books fall short. Even if you are not yourself suffering from an STD, Damaged Goods? gives you a glimpse into the life of someone living with HPV or HSV…”


Seductive Delusions: How Everyday People Catch STDs

STDsWhat other people said about this book:

“This book makes it clear exactly when, how, and why people who are not promiscuous are catching STDs. This is NOT a boring textbook lecture on STDs, it reads like a story, featuring smart, educated young people who look, act and talk like your teen (or 20 or 30-something).”


Dr. Ruth’s Guide to Talking About Herpes

Herpes HSVWhat other people said about this book:

What other people said about this book:

“The Fear of Knowing is an excellent read. It provides you with different scenarios regarding family and friendship and dealing with life changing truths surrounding HIV.

Live, Love & Thrive with Herpes – by Dr Kelly Martin Schuh

Women need this information and Dr. Kelly is the one of the only ones I know that is providing it.”
