Abstract:

Presents briefly facts about sex, and then discusses such questions as dating, dating risks from pick-ups to venereal disease, relationships with parents, psychology and sex, and sex before marriage.

"Helen Southard, psychologist and parent, here offers a new approach to the sex and dating questions of today's young people for whom the old answers are no longer adequate. In Sex Before Twenty she shows you how to find new answers by gaining a better understanding of yourselves. The book discusses, honestly and realistically, the actual questions that you ask. Mrs. Southard shows how sexual needs are always related to broader emotional needs, and how sex can be used to hurt as well as to enhance emotional growth. She gives a straightforward and lucid account of the physical facts about sex, but does not stop there--her emphasis is on you as a whole person. Case histories are used to present the problems as you yourselves actually experience them. The purpose is twofold: to help you bridge the communications gap between generations and to give you the facts to work out your own problems as you confront them. With a clearer sense of what can be gained or lost through choices made in the maturing years, you are helped toward the discovery of your full role as a sexual person. Readers should come away from Sex Before Twenty with a new grasp of the meaning of sexual freedom and sexual responsibility."--Dust jacket.
