Teen Guide to Healthy Dating
Dating for Real: What Do You Want (#101)
The program illustrates how gender stereotypes, reinforced in the media, get in the way of true intimacy and connection. It captures student attention by showing a horror movie parody called, 'What They Gave For Love,' which focuses on the body parts (such as brains!) girls have to give up to get a boyfriend. Through interviews with youth, the video emphasizes the importance of being true to oneself to best connect with others. [21 minutes]
