Hi y'all! I don't have a teen (though we're getting close) but I was hoping someone here could help me.
Several years ago someone on MDC recommended a book. It was about female sexuality, how it is dealt with in our culture, the values placed on virginity, etc. It also talked about teen sexuality and how we as a culture treat it with such kid gloves, are so afraid of sexually active teens, place undue emphasis on Chastity = you are worthwhile versus Sexually Active = you are worthless. I'm very liberal when it comes to attitudes about sexuality and I have no issue with pre-marital sex or teen sex (when done responsibly and as an active choice), so this book really resonated with me.
It was such an eye-opening book and really stuck a chord with me. I cannot for the life of me remember the title and searching has not yielded any results. Does anyone have any ideas??
