Help teens understand that sex isn’t something that just happens to them – they have choices. Encourage teens to weigh the risks involved for themselves and their potential partners so that there are no regrets.
Includes 51 essential questions that teens should ask themselves before having sex – some playful or offbeat, some direct and serious.
We explain why knowing the answers will lead to better (or delayed) sexual experiences. Features firsthand accounts from teens who explain how they came to have sex (or decided not to).
“The Teen Guide to Sex will give your students accurate information, encourage them to think much more deeply about the emotional aspects of human sexuality, and help them develop sound values about their personal behavior. The short essays by teens are astounding in their thoughtfulness and honesty and adhere to the highest standards of writing.”
