When it comes to sex and relationships, it is often difficult to find reliable information. Yet everyone has questions and needs information on these important topics. Young people should have access to facts in order to make their own decisions about their sexuality and sexual health. In this significantly revised edition of Sexual Decisions: The Ultimate Teen Guide, L. Kris Gowen discusses the choices teens can make regarding sexual activity—from practicing safe sex to abstaining—and how to decide what is right for each individual. Many factors are at work in the decision-making process, but this book helps readers make a decision based on both logic and practicality. Updated topics covered in this book include
