Who’s Using the DVD?
The Wisdom of Girls Press Kit
This unique, all-girl, documentary-style video with real teens, whose sexual experience spans from virginity to teen motherhood, gives the audience a very personal view of the complexities of sex in the lives of teen girls and encouragement to wait until they are ready emotionally. The girls in the video address the pressures to have sex, the many reasons why girls choose to have sex when they are not ready to, the emotional and physical consequences of that choice, why girls are not practicing safe sex and how to protect their bodies, minds and hearts. The girls in the video explore with the audience how to decide when the “right” time is to have sex and who the “right” person is to share that experience with. Each section of this video provides a time of reflection through open discussion or written exercise with the goal of self-exploration and concrete steps to act upon. A 27 page Facilitator’s Guide is included to give adults all the tools they need to lead comfortable, comprehensive, open discussions while viewing the video. This evidence-supported DVD makes a difference in the lives of girls. To see statistics click here. What about the boys? This DVD is equally relevant for boys.
