The Sex Lives of Teenagers gives readers the rare opportunity to step into a therapist's office, where we are privy to teenagers' uncensored desires, opinions, and confessions about sex. As Dr. Lynn Ponton demonstrated in her first book, The Romance of Risk, she has a gift for drawing teenagers out so that they talk frankly, without fear of judgment. She also gives voice to these teenagers' parents as they struggle to understand their adolescent children's dangerous sexual behavior. As therapist and narrator, Dr. Ponton gives the reader the benefit of her wise and compassionate insights into why teenagers so often jeopardize their futures and lives with risky sexual behavior. But more than that, she provides invaluable information and revelations about how teenagers deal with sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender roles, puberty, menstruation, and sexual fantasies. This is a revealing and professional look at a subject most parents and teens have difficulty addressing.
