Can twelve teenagers give up all sexual activity for five months? Can they explore the value of relationships, learn about themselves and develop confidence and self esteem? Only one is a virgin and most have been sexually active for years. But as they abstain from sex, they experience more, not less, respect from their friends.

This DVD charts two Christian youth workers taking the group on a five month journey that includes visiting the USA to see evangelical abstinence projects such as the Silver Ring Thing. Their faith and commitment to these young people shines throughout the series. Some of the group appear to make a Christian commitment; all of them grow in maturity and confidence.

Watch this with your teenagers and discuss what they and their friends think, say and do – and why. Pass it on to your youth leader or your local secondary school. Challenge the apparent norm in society and give our young people some reasons – other than 'you shouldn't' – for abstaining from sex.
