Welcome to another day of New Adult August! We’re talking about all things New Adult throughout this month, and you can find out what we’ve shared so far and what to expect right here! Ooooh a fun topic! We’ve already discussed what NA is and how it differs from YA and Adult generally, but now it’s time for that big differentiator: S-E-X!
