Product Description

Scientific research shows how sexual activity releases brain chemicals that trigger emotional bonding and a powerful desire to repeat the activity. Today's young adults have discovered that "hooking up" is easy and addictive. Offering a Christian "philosophy of sexuality," Drs. McIlhaney and Bush help parents and singles understand why "safe sex" isn't safe at all. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description

"I had no idea having sex as a teenager could affect the rest of my life."

What does a three-pound brain have to do with one’s sex life? A lot, actually.

Breakthroughs in the burgeoning field of neuroscience explain the impact of sex on the developing brains of adolescents and young adults. Through scientific data put in layman’s terms, this book demonstrates that:

  • Sexual activity releases chemicals in the brain, creating emotional bonds between partners.
  • Breaking these bonds can cause depression and make it harder to bond with someone else in the future.
  • Chemicals released in the brain during sex can become addictive.
  • The human brain is not fully developed until a person reaches their mid-20s. Until then, it is harder to make wise relationship decisions.

Parents and others who care about young people now have the facts to steer them away from making life-changing mistakes, and lead them toward reaching their full potential. 

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.
