I had no idea having sex as a teenager could affect the rest of my life.
What does a three-pound brain have to do with one s sex life? A lot, actually.
Breakthroughs in the burgeoning field of neuroscience explain the impact of sex on the developing brains of adolescents and young adults. Through scientific data put in layman s terms, this book demonstrates that:
- Sexual activity releases chemicals in the brain, creating emotional bonds between partners.
- Breaking these bonds can cause depression and make it harder to bond with someone else in the future.
- Chemicals released in the brain during sex can become addictive.
- The human brain is not fully developed until a person reaches their mid-20s. Until then, it is harder to make wise relationship decisions.
Parents and others who care about young people now have the facts to steer them away from making life-changing mistakes, and lead them toward reaching their full potential.
This book will help parents and singles understand that safe sex isn't safe at all; that even if they are protected against STDs and pregnancy, they are still hurting themselves and their partner."
