This eye opening video features diverse voices of real teens who proudly choose abstinence in their lives. Abstinence is defined as not participating in sexual intercourse of any kind, including oral sex. Lauren, a 15 year-old from New Rochelle, NY describes how her goals would be compromised by having sex. Joshua 17, an African American writer and editor for a student magazine called Sex, Etc. opts for abstinence until marriage because of personal dreams and career goals. Lauren, an art major from Miami, enjoys hanging out with all her friends but doesn't think she is yet ready for a sexual relationship. Ian, a senior in San Diego enjoys dating, but chooses to steer clear of sexual activities for now. Then we visit Caitlin, a senior at Cornell University, who started a program called Time Out which coaches kids to explore their values when thinking about sex and relationships. Specific topics like sex in the media, why boundaries matter, confusing love and sex, risks and consequences of sex before you're ready, the importance of choosing friends, resisting drugs and alcohol, and setting life goals are thoroughly explored.
