Amy Lang, MA, Sex Educator

By Julie Cusmariu – December 4, 2022


When and How To Talk about Sex with Your Tweens with (and thanks to) Sex Educator Amy Lang, MA.

Amy Lang, MA has been a sexual health educator for over 25 years. Surprised by her discomfort with just the idea of talking with her young son about his body, she knew she needed help. Amy did a bunch of research to learn how to talk with kids about bodies and sexuality and realized she could help other parents with this important part of parenting.

In 2006 she started Birds & Bees & Kids. With her lively, engaging, and down-to-earth style she helps parents become comfortable and confident talking with their kids. Amy’s books, online solutions center, and podcast called “Just Say This”, show parents they really can become their kids’ go-to birds and bees source.
