Re: about sex in children books
The only problem with that theory is that the same kids who aren't interested in reading about sex are likely uninterested in reading about snogging and boyfriend/girlfriend jealousy. I do know some younger kids who held their hands over their ears in those parts of HBP or rolled their eyes or whatever (although mine did not). It just seems that when a large part of the book is about teen romance and there's no mention of sex, it's an authorial decision that means something other than that her audience is unlikely to be interested in that topic. At least that's my opinion.
