Teen Sex By the Book

"And you, your sex is on fire,
Consumed with what's to transpire"

- Kings of Leon, Sex on Fire

Let’s be blunt … we are a sex obsessed-society and,
quite simply, we can’t get enough.

Do you reckon that’s a bit harsh? Just think about how many sexual
images you’ve been exposed to today via social media, music, the internet,
television and smartphone. Think about how you’ve felt about your own
body, your sexuality and your attractiveness. Think about how many
conversations you’ve had with your friends about ‘that’ girl at school or the hot
guy that catches your bus.

Sex surrounds us. It’s not something we need to go looking for. The question for
Christians 'How do we manage our sexual desire in a way that is God-honouring and countercultural?' What kind of lifestyle leads to healthy, pleasurable sex and intimate, satisfying relationships that last a lifetime?

Teen Sex By the Book answers your questions about teenage sexuality and relationships. Renowned sex therapist and educator Dr Patricia Weerakoon, explores the topics of sexual desire and arousal, falling in love, and dating—things like, ‘How far is too far?’ You’ll also cover topics like cybersex, pornography and homosexuality, and the effects these can have on our sex lives.

The discussion is frank and, in parts, explicit. Ultimately, it calls you to consider who you are and what you stand for.

M15+ Recommended for ages 15 and over. Contains adult themes and sexual references.

Who am I?

My name is Patricia Weerakoon. Well, Doctor Patricia Weerakoon actually. I completed my medical training in Sri Lanka in 1972. I have postgraduate degrees in sexual health from the University of Hawaii and education from the University of New South Wales. I have been an academic with the University of Sydney for the last 23 years. The last eight have been the most enjoyable: these were spent as the director of a master’s program in sexual health.

I retired in December 2011 to follow my passion: to bring my training in sex and God’s pattern for healthy holistic sexuality together.
