Ban Lifted from Respect – Everything A Guy Needs to Know About Sex, Love, and Consent in South Korea

The month-long ban on Inti Chavez Perez’s bestselling book Respect in South Korea has been canceled, effective immediately. After protests from human rights activists, the Korean publisher Moonye and an open letter from the Swedish Writers’ Union, the Ministry of Culture has chosen to revoke its own decision. The ban came into effect when a conservative group filed a report stating the inappropriateness with books about sexual education at schools and public libraries.

After the happy news, the author said in a statement:

“It’s an international trend that conservative groups try to intimidate by stating that sexual education is dangerous. The result is that young people are prevented from accessing the sources of information with the highest quality. It’s so stupid. Instead, young people are forced to figure it out by themselves.”

Respect – Everything A Guy Needs to Know About Sex, Love, and Consent was published by Moonye in South Korea in July, 2020. The international rights have been sold to 18 territories.
