Publisher's Description

Society tells us that sex is an act of self-expression, a personal choice for physical pleasure that can be summed up in the ubiquitous phrase: "hooking up". Millions of American teenagers and young adults are finding that the psychological baggage of such behavior is having a real and lasting impact on their lives. They are discovering that "hooking up" is the easy part, but "unhooking" from the bonds of a sexual relationship can have serious consequences. A practical look into new scientific research showing how sexual activity causes the release of brain chemicals, which then result in emotional bonding and a powerful desire to repeat the activity. This book will help parents and singles understand that "safe sex" isn't safe at all; that even if they are protected against STDs and pregnancy, they are still hurting themselves and their partner.

    I volunteer in a Pro-Life crisis pregnancy center and try to read any material that might help me understand the current views on sexual promiscuity and why it is so rampant. This book gives me greater insight.

    I wish someone told me this information when I was a young adult, it would have saved me from many heartbreaks growing up. Had no clue the effect of multiple casual partners would have on you years later. The fact and the information these doctors find should be taught to our children in the classroom and of course in the home. I will be reading this book with my kids when they are of age.

    This is an excellent book with essential information for parents, teens, educators, and medical professionals. People I mention it to are concerned or even hungry for the information and I have given 6 of these books away. This information must get out.

    I work with young girls, most already have children. When I read this book and how sex can destroy those young brains, I was on fire with passion to reach out to them. If you work with youth, you need to read this book. We need to help our young children learn to stop destroying what God meant to be beautiful.
