New Christian Book for Teens Adresses Sexting and Cybersex

New Book for Teens Adresses Sexting and Cybersex
Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit text messages or images, primarily between cell phones. The term became first popular in the early 21st century, and is a synonym for sex and texting, where the latter is meant in the wide sense of sending a text possibly with photographs.

By Eternity Newspaper, September 18, 2012:

Almost every Australian school has had reports of ‘sexting’. Ninety-three per cent of males and 62 per cent of females aged 13 to 16 have seen pornography online. By age 15, 70 per cent of boys and girls will be sexually experienced. By age 18, that number increases to 88 per cent.*

For parents, these facts are scary. For teenagers, they’re reality – the norm. It’s why, in partnership with youth site, Fervr, Christian sex therapist Patricia Weerakoon has written her new book.

According to the book’s publishers, Youthworks, Teen Sex by the Book is “frank and, in parts, explicit. It’s a raw and honest journey into the teen world, exploring the ‘taboo’ topics, such as the effect of porn on the brain, sexting, cybersex and homosexuality.”

“Above all,” writes Weerakoon to her teenage audience, the book “calls you to consider who you are and what you stand for, and to join young people everywhere in God’s new sexual revolution.”

“We invite you to discover how God’s countercultural lifestyle leads to healthy, pleasurable sex and intimate, satisfying relationships that last a lifetime.”

This is an extract from Teen Sex By the Book. A longer extract will be published in the October edition Eternity Newspaper.
