Gwyneth Paltrow has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to lifestyle, beauty, health – and now sexuality.

The actress and owner of Goop has just written a book that is set to her embarrass her two kids, Apple, 13 and Moses, 12, but they are the reason she’s written it.

“We’re living in a time where there’s so much access to everything,” the magazine boss said on Good Morning America. “I have a 12-year-old boy and I live in fear that he’s going to learn all about sex from the internet.”

The new book, The Sex Issue: Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Know about Sexuality, Seduction and Desire is a modern take of the Joy of Sex from 1972.

“Sexuality is an important topic,” she said. “And I think sometimes people think it’s taboo and they don’t want to talk about it.”

Gwynnie, who recently celebrated her engagement to producer, Brad Falchuk, is currently in the process of wedding planning and said it was a very happy time for the family.
