This unique, all-girl, documentary-style video with real teens, whose sexual experience spans from virginity to teen motherhood, gives the audience a very personal view of the complexities of sex in the lives of teen girls and an impassioned plea to wait.
The girls in the video discuss:
- the tactics that boys use to encourage sexual activity
- the many reasons why girls choose to have sex when they are not ready to
- the emotional and physical consequences of that choice
- why girls are not practicing safe sex
- how to protect their bodies, minds and hearts
The girls in the video explore with the audience how to decide when the “right” time is to have sex and who the “right” person is to share that privileged experience with. And lastly, the girls emphatically tell the audience why waiting to have sex is a positive choice.
Preparation is the key. Each section of this video provides a time of reflection through open discussion or written exercise with the goal of self-exploration and concrete steps to act upon.
What about the boys? This DVD is equally relevant and designed for boys. Boys will watch this and be stunned to learn what girls think about with regard to sex. They will have a new appreciation for how their requests and behaviors affect girls emotionally and physically. They will walk away from this information having had the opportunity to be more thoughtful about their own choices around sex.
Suitable for middle school and high school students and parents and educators. Viewing time: 37 minutes. 2009.
