Thompson pens sex handbook for daughter

Emma Thompson, right, is so worried about the sexual pressures children face in the age of social media that she has penned a handbook on sex and emotion for her teenage daughter.

The British actress said she wrote the guide for her 13-year-old daughter, Gaia, as she was in a "constant state of anxiety" over what children were exposed to. She also revealed that at the age of eight, she was molested by a man at a party.

The guide was to show her daughter "you can sometimes feel things in your loins you don't feel in your heart, and you need to look at that".
