"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
