This is

in
your

y
o

r
beliefs, what you like and don’t like, how you treat others,
and
how you treat y

Yet this is also
a
time when there are
so
many pressures
to be
how others want
you to be. You
may
be
tempted
to
be di
ff 
erent from who
you
really are
so
that
you’ll
be popular with
a
certain

or seem
cool. 
Sexuality is
not
just about
body
parts,
STIs, and
co

ra

ception.
It
is also
a
large part
of a
person’s

and that
i
s
why
this
book
is also
about
relationships

 I
also write about the media and culture because
h

can in

not
always for the

Adolescence is the gateway
to
adulthood,
a
stage
of life
lled with changes, with its
own
unique joys

In

are the key ideas

hope you’ll learn from this
book: 1.
This is the time
in
your life when you should
begin to
really
know who you
are as
a

Knowing who you are will help you make

2.
Your body is still developing and you have
a
right
to
understand how
it
is

a

.
 
Your body is
not to be
feared, nor should
you
feel shame or
guilt about it, no
matter
what. 3.
Abstaining from sexual intercourse when

to
reduce your risk
