My first time by Jessie Nelson ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Everyone remembers the first time they made love, but no one ever talks about it. This film good-naturedly breaks that taboo. A diverse group of Americans of all ages and backgrounds recall their experiences-some funny, some sad, some disappointing, some ecstatic. Their reflections on sexual curiosity, anxiety over the act s aftermath, its exhilarating psychological effect, and the retrospectively comic ignorance that often precedes the moment will provide new insights. From teenagers to octogenerians, the memories reflect the continuity and changes in our sexual mores over four generations. There are recollections of backseat escapades, innocent wedding nights, AIDS- conscious encounters, starry-eyed meetings. This film will be useful for classes dealing with human sexuality, social history and psychology
