How do other single moms talk to their sons about puberty and sex?

I am divorced and my ex husband is no longer a part of my children's lives. My son is 12 and I'm sure he's going through puberty or at least starting to.I homeschool him primarily due to his ADHD and the public schools' refusal to provide necessary accommodations for him) and last year we did a section on sex-ed (the body and functions). He was VERY embarrassed, and I understood...I'm his mom, he's 12, of course he doesn't want to talk about that with me! He has no real male role model in his life that he can talk to about these things--the only possibility would be my brother and he is a disgusting pervert. (Yes, I say that to his face) So, I gave him a very easy to read book that explains things with pictures and told him if he had any questions or wanted to discuss that I would be right there. He hasn't talked to me at all and he gets embarrassed and upset if anything is brought up (my daughter brings things up to tease). What do I do?
