Product Description

LET S TALK ABOUT SEX takes a revealing look at how American attitudes toward adolescent sexuality impact today s teenagers. Director James Houston takes us on a journey to examine trends in American society as personified by a cast of diverse characters. At a high school for pregnant teens in Los Angeles, young girls are contemplating teen parenthood. In Washington, D.C., where HIV infection rates rival several African countries, community outreach workers are trying to save lives. The film also travels to the Netherlands, where Houston compares European attitudes with America, then concludes in Oregon, where the lessons learned in Western Europe are helping to create practical solutions. Real parents and youth, compelling statistics, animation and archival material paint an urgent picture of American youth in crisis.

Review

Despite the title, the documentary Let s Talk About Sex is about what happens when people don t talk about sex a widespread problem in America s classrooms, homes and churches, according to the film. Sexual imagery permeates the culture, but many young adults are taught abstinence, leading to higher rates of pregnancy and disease than in countries such as the Netherlands, Germany and France, where, according to the film, teens begin to have sex at about the same age as those in America. Let s Talk About Sex exposes some stunning ironies, such as a teacher at a high school for pregnant teen mothers pushing abstinence on the students (um, too late!) and how a teen had sex the same night as her purity ball at church. The film aired on TLC in April and is now available on DVD. --Washington Post

I am a human sexuality instructor at a college. This was brought to my attention by an adult student with teenagers. He said it changed the way he talks to his kids about sex. I watched it on You Tube (search with "documentary" in the name) and then showed it to my class. It's a wonderful look at what a failure American culture is when it comes to educating kids about sex. It contrasts how European parents are more open and more trusting with their children about sexual issues. The result is a staggering difference in rates of pregnancy, STIs and abortion. I've been teaching for years that Americans are NOT open about sex. We're obsessed with it and ashamed of it at the same time. We're like a nation of 14 year-old boys about sex. Sex in America is a dirty joke, not a healthy, natural part of life. This film does a great job of bringing that lesson to life. Watch this with your kids. You will start a conversation that may change lives.

I bought this dvd for two reasons: to help me in my employment (Health Department RN), and to give me more information before my daughter becomes "of age". Well worth the money spent for the knowledge gained! I have passed along the dvd to coworkers, my supervisor, and nurses who travel to the local schools to teach the children there about healthy relationships and other health related education. Thanks!!
