Program 1- Physical cost
Pregnancy isn't the only consideration. What dangers are youth in from the runaway epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases?
Program 2- Emotional cost
Sex is more than just an animal act. Your personhood and future are affected by the choices you make, choices that are sometimes tragically made in the heat of emotion and that can never be taken back.
Program 3- Spiritual cost
Where does God fit in all this? Are there standards that you can look to that provide sure guidance? Is there any hope for those who have already made unfortunate choices? What can be salvaged?
Program 4- Making good choices, building character
Your character is being formed day by day. How are you giving thought and direction to the person that you want to become? On what basis are you making your key choices? How do you get a hold of your life?
PAM'S BIO: Pam Stenzel is the founder and director of Straight Talk, an organization established for the purpose of educating teens about issues of sexuality and the importance of chastity. She has spoken with over 500,000 teenagers across the nation on the subjects of teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS. After reading response sheets filled out by teens who have attended her assemblies, it is obvious that they not only listened but have taken Pam's message to heart.
Pam received her degree in psychology from Liberty University. Prior to going into speaking full-time, she was the Director of Alpha Women's Center, a non-profit, counseling center for women experiencing crisis pregnancies. Pam put her education and experience to work counseling pregnant teens and supervising support programs for teen parents and for women who chose adoption.

I used this video to prepare for the sex talk with my son. It was great. I watched it as a parent, and when he is a little older, I will let him watch the whole thing. It is really good.
I was turning off the TV when I caught part of Pam's program one night. My jaw dropped over and over again as I watched Pam lay out the truth and consequences about premarital sex. I sat mesmerized for the next hour and a half! Her words and delivery are powerful. Her speech is peppered with just the right amount of scripture but without seeming preachy. How I wish I had viewed this as a teen, it may have saved me from many of the bad things Pam discusses. I have often wondered how I will teach my children about sex and although they are only toddlers, I am ordering this NOW and holding until the appropriate time. It's THAT good. I plan to share it with ministry leaders at church as well to see if they can incorporate it into teen curriculum. If you are a grown adult still battling sexual issues such as purity (or if you need healing from past issues) you will benefit from this as well. Praise God for Pam's straight talk.
This was a great film for teens. I am supervisor in a home for teen-aged girls who have emotional and/or behavioral problems. Last night we sat down and started the film. Though we are not complete the girls were spellbound,and are anxious to watch the rest.
This DVD is outstanding I would rate it 5 starts!
This movie is a steal for $5 considering the quality of contents and appeal to young people. Every parent who wants to really connect with their kids on such an important subject will find great help and opportunity for discussion as well as church groups for the youth.
