As time goes on, it seems that there are more and more YA books coming out that deal with sex--whether it's just mentioned in passing, alluded to, or actually described.
I know that many people wouldn't expect sex in YA books, but let's face it--teens aren't ignorant of it, as many aduts would like to believe, and for many, sex is a big part of their lives. However, there are also some teens who aren't ready to read sex scenes, and for them to pop up in a YA book might come as a bit of a surprise, therefore causing many adults to judge the more risque books unsuitable for teen minds, which leads to book banning and slamming, and all sorts of civil rights violations.
So I want to hear your thoughts. How far is too far, or is there even a limit? Do you believe that teens should be responsible for self censoring, or that such books should be "branded" with a warning? Let me know.
