Messages about sexuality are everywhere it's not something teenagers need to go looking for.
Written for teenagers, this book answers the questions teenagers have about sexuality and relationships. Renown sex therapist and educator Dr Patricia Weerakoon explores the topics of sexual desire and arousal, falling in love, and dating—things like, ‘How far is too far?’ It also covers topics like cybersex, pornography and homosexuality, and the effects these can have on love and intimacy. The discussion is frank and, in parts, explicit.
Teens may find it a little uncomfortable, but it’s stuff that will inform and challenge them. Ultimately, it calls you to consider who you are and what you stand for. Discover how living God’s countercultural lifestyle leads to healthy intimacy and satisfying relationships that last a lifetime.
