Having the Conversation


Start Here:

We know that one reason people have sex is to make a baby, but there are also lots of other reasons.

What are some other reasons you have heard? Because sex feels good? Because people love each other? Because people want to show affection to each other?

What are some other reasons?

Are there reasons that you think are not okay or valid? What are those?



Do you know people who might have sex for different reasons than you would?

What are some of those reasons?

How do peoples’ values affect when and why they have sex?

Do you know people who have different values about this than you?

How do you talk about your values while respecting theirs?

Do they respect your values as well?


Keep Talking:

What reasons are good reasons to you?

What are your values about this?

What influenced these values – your family, your friends, the media?

Do you think your reasons would change as you get older?

How would they change and why?

Why do you think some people change their values?
