Remember the days when the youth ministry “Sex Talk” was simple and straightforward? Well, maybe it wasn’t that simple or straightforward, but today more than ever, sex saturates the world our students are growing up in. Everywhere they look (or listen) they can hear all kinds of messages about sexuality, and most of it probably isn’t helping them develop a healthy understanding of how their own sexuality fits into God’s plan for their lives.
The need for ongoing dialogue and learning about sexuality and how it connects with faith has never been greater. Trying to help students understand how their sexuality relates to God’s plan for their lives is a great challenge in a day when just about anything goes. Today, teenage sexuality includes things that might make some of us blush, such as:
* Hooking up
* Oral sex (as a “safe” alternative to vaginal intercourse)
* Friends with benefits
* A greater social acceptability of gay and lesbian relationships and experimentation
In Good Sex 2.0: A Whole-Person Approach to Teenage Sexuality and God, you’ll find tools to help you (and parents of teens) involve your students in understanding, enjoying, and taking responsibility for their sexuality---all without lecturing, intimidating, or moralizing.
This new and improved seven-session curriculum kit gives you a 13-segment DVD, one copy of the student journal, What (Almost) Nobody Will Tell You About Sex, and one copy of the Good Sex 2.0 Leader’s Guide, all of which are biblically based and include the latest in social science and sexual research among adolescents. When used together, the components of this curriculum kit will bring up the tough questions, open up honest dialogue, and help your students see how their sexuality fi ts into God’s plan for their lives.
