Written for teen boys, Dating and Sex provides them with the knowledge they need to understand dating, relationships and sex. It goes beyond basic descriptions of the biological processes with a progressive, practical approach that relies on secular ethics and emphasises sexual health and personal responsibility. The book addresses common questions about what's typical, provides a framework for dating and sex that fits their values and identity, and helps boys identify what feels right for them in a variety of common situations.
Girl [hearts] girl, Lucy Sutcliffe.
In 2010, at 17, Lucy Sutcliffe began an online friendship with Kaelyn, a young veterinary student from Michigan. Within months, they began a long distance relationship, finally meeting in the summer of 2011. Lucy's video montage of their first week spent together in Saint Kitts, which she posted to the couple's YouTube channel, was the first in a series of films documenting their long-distance relationship. Funny, tender and candid, the films attracted them a vast online following.
