Summary

Ground-breaking and controversial: an Australian Kinsey-for-teenagers Are teenagers more sexually active than they were ten years ago? How many teenagers have sex because of peer group pressure? How often do they regret having sex? What do they think of sex education? Adults make a lot of assumptions about what teenagers do and how they feel, but really have no idea. In early 2006, Joan Sauers conducted an anonymous online survey to find out. Teenagers from around Australia responded, talking openly and honestly about issues such as: intimacy and relationships; masturbation and sexual fantasies; sexual texting and chat room liaisons; sexual orientation and coming out; contraception and protection against STIs; pornography and the media; and coercion and sexual violence. Sex Lives of Australian Teenagers presents over a hundred of their responses in their original, unedited form - some of them funny and poignant, others startling and disturbing. Sauers' analysis of the survey responses is compassionate and non-judgemental; she believes teenagers can only develop healthy sexual attitudes when they are able to speak freely about their sexual experiences and learn about the experiences of others. This ground-breaking study is sure to create controversy, but Sauers hopes it will also stimulate dialogue. A resource section is included to help teenagers and their parents find information and support. This book is desperately needed by parents, teachers, psychologists and counsellors - but most of all by teenagers themselves.
