The program unpacks the many factors that go into a young person's decision to become sexually active or not, beginning with a discussion of sexual pressure from the media, peers and partners. Viewers are reminded that more than half of all students do not have sex before graduating from high school. Teens and health experts discuss the epidemic of sexually transmitted infections among youth and the life-changing effects of an unplanned pregnancy. Viewers learn how to reduce their risk for both by correctly using condoms and other forms of contraception. Presents abstinence as a healthy choice for teens and emphasizes the benefits of delaying sexual activity.

Includes Resource Guide.

"Highly Recommended... while the overall message of the film is for teens to delay sex until they're older and can be certain they're not having sex for the wrong reasons, it also provides basic information about protecting themselves from STIs and pregnancy should they decide to go ahead. This DVD should be a part of any teen health collection in a library, school or clinical setting." - Educational Media Reviews Online
