This program explores these issues: How does a person express love? What is an obsession? Is a sexual relationship a necessary part of being in love? How are feelings of self-worth connected to love and loss of love? By following actual teenage relationships as they develop and by interviewing young people about their feelings and experiences, students will gain insight into the complex issues of love and sex.
