Description:

Society tells us that sex is an act of self-expression, a personal choice for physical pleasure that can be summed up in the ubiquitous phrase: ldquo;hooking up.rdquo; Millions of American teenagers and young adults are finding that the psychological baggage of such behavior is having a real and lasting impact on their lives. They are discovering that ldquo;hooking uprdquo; is the easy part, but ldquo;unhookingrdquo; from the bonds of a sexual relationship can have serious consequences. A practical look into new scientific research showing how sexual activity causes the release of brain chemicals which then result in emotional bonding and a powerful desire to repeat the activity. This book will help parents and singles understand that ldquo;safe sexrdquo; isn't safe at all; that even if they are protected against STD's and pregnancy, they are still hurting themselves and their partner.
