What Teens Want to Know About
Love Dating and Sex
This Christian-oriented teen book spends page after page on the “don’t have sex” message. I am okay with a no sex message, but the slut shaming is awful. If you are a girl, your life will be ruined if you have sex. In addition, you will probably die alone or commit tons of adultery. By the way, it is also implied that girls have to be the moral one in this scenario since boys evidently can’t control themselves.
There is very little substance other than pages and pages of disasters about losing your virginity. Mr. Eager (don’t you love that name!) says you can prevent rape as well. Just ask the rapist to take you home when he starts getting handsy and don’t hang out with “wild boys.”
Fun fact: Boys like girls that are punctual and neat. Do you suppose wild boys like punctuality and neatness too? Wild boys, please comment!
