The Truth About Sexual Behavior and Unplanned Pregnancy is a trusted source teens can turn to for straightforward information about everything from contraception to the media's portrayal of sex. Providing a clear picture of teenage sexual behavior and its consequences, this book offers sound advice to teenagers and encourages discussion with parents and peers. Teens' accounts and question-and-answer segments provide a real-life perspective, and charts and graphs add a visually stimulating element to this important reference. Topics include conception, pregnancy, and childbirth; dating; sex and the media; prevention of pregnancy; and sexual orientation.
