This hard-hitting award-winner makes an excellent case for sexual abstinence prior to marriage. Combines interviews of ordinary (sometimes very humorous) teens and adolescents, famous Christian athletes, entertainers, and alarming facts from concerned health-care professionals. Together, they emphasize that saving sexual intimacy until marriage, and then remaining faithful to your spouse, is the only truly protected way to avoid the many physically and emotionally devastating STD’s (Sexually Transmitted Diseases).

Encourages teens who have already been sexually active to begin again reserving themselves by launching their “secondary virginity.” This title has been released in both a “secular” and a “Christian” version. The “Christian” version is the full-length one and includes good Bible-based counsel from several of the mid-1990’s best-known American Christian role models (i.e., Kirk Cameron and Chelsea Noble, Orel Hersheiser, Kathy Troccoli, A.C. Green, Michael W. Smith, etc.).

Year of Release—1993
