Ilana Newman, had a monthly column in Twist magazine, where she answered sex and body questions that teen girls did not feel comfortable asking their friends, parents, or pediatrician. Over the years, Dr. Newman has met several regular readers of the column who told her how helpful and reassuring it was to read the questions and answers of other girls with similar concerns. Some even told her that if it wasnt for Dr. Newmans advice, they might have done things that would have put their health and safety at risk.Recently, a former reader of Dr. Newmans column (who is now the mother of a young teen girl herself) expressed disappointment that there no longer is a similar source of this information for her daughter and her daughters friends.
This motivated Dr. Newman to dust off her old issues of Twist magazine and make this important advice widely available once again. Other than some minor revisions and updates, the questions and answers in this book are the same as appeared in the column and are the same advice Dr.
Newman would give to a teen girl today. Other volumes in this series address questions about period problems and sex stuff.For the price of a single copy of Twist magazine in 1999, you can have several years worth of reliable health advice for teen girls with just one click.And Ilana Newman, MD does a good job with the body hotline advice column. Dr. Newman must have the patience of a saint – that, or they just keep running the same letters from the same obtuse, health-class-cutting young ladies over and over.
