A low rate “sex education” book has been de-listed on Amazon after horrified users noticed it recommended that parents invite children into the bedroom to observe them in acts of sexual intimacy.
While the book, “Sex Education for 8-12 Year Olds: Kids Book for Good Parents,” appears to have no credentials and is likely written by a phony, non-existent author, it was nonetheless uploaded to Amazon for purchase.
This was discovered by the Twitter account Courage Is A Habit, which is aimed at empowering parents to combat indoctrination in education. A tweet including screen shots of the book also tied it to current trends in sexuality education.
The book reportedly explains that “it is not uncommon for children to overhear or even ‘catch’ their parents making love.”
And so it explains that “a child should be gradually introduced to the ordinary mechanics of lovemaking and allowed to enter into the parent’s circle of love.”
“Instead of being shut out completely and left to wonder how daddy and mommy do it,” the book adds.
One means through which it suggests that parents can begin “educating your child about his/her sexuality” they can “deliberately leave the bedroom door open or ajar while expressing intimacy” or “call upon your child to bring or take something away while you are expressing intimacy.”
It gets worse.
The book further recommends to parents to “Take your child into bed with you and allow him or her to watch as you share intimacy.”
And also, “A mother should feel relaxed breast-feeding her baby while her husband makes love to her.”
The Daily Wire reported that the book has been removed from Amazon “following dozens of one-star reviews and comments from readers who were disturbed by the book’s content.”
It had previously sold for $2.99 for Kindle and $7.98 for paperback at the time it was removed from the retail giant’s platform.
An article that takes a stab at debunking the conservative platform’s story on the book pointed out that the author appears to be non-existent and the book is one of thousands on Amazon’s massive platform which was likely generated to make a quick buck.
All the same, as the Wire noted, “there remains a legitimate concern that some could have bought the book seeking genuine advice,” and it appears to have explicitly recommended parents invite children into the bedroom when they are engaging in sexual intercourse, so it is tremendously troubling that anyone wrote the book all the same.

The book received several bad reviews that complained of poor grammar and production quality, with at least one noting “Book promotes children watching their parents having sex to learn. Completely not okay.”
Another shared a picture of one of the disturbing passages and wrote “Inviting your 12 year old child into bed to watch you having sex (whilst your wife breastfeeds….) isn’t my idea of sensible sex education. Like something from a Charles Manson support group.”
One 2021 review noted “This is clearly a self published book with no scientific or logical support for a majority of the content. Yes, parents should be a primary source of sex education for children but this book provides no resources or structure to help parents accomplish this goal. The book is also full of grammatical errors that make it hard to read.”
Thankfully the book has been removed from Amazon’s platform, but the question remains — who published this book? It seems to leave more questions than assuring answers.
