Summary This video explores the forces influencing young people's decisions about sex: media, friends, family, religion, love, AIDS, alcohol, and homophobia. Teen Sexuality in a Culture of Confusion is a unique, accessible tool for facilitating an informed, balanced discussion about these and other influences on young people. In the age of AIDS, such talk can save lives. When young people tell their own stories, their peers listen. In this program, award-winning documentarian and photojournalist Dan Habib features the stories of eight young people, ages 16-24. Two of the eight talk about living with AIDS. Interlaced with the first-person stories are experts' observations about the messages young people get from popular culture. Susan Bordo, author of Unbearable Weight: Feminism, Western Culture and the Body, joins five other prominent social scientists in discussing cultural influences on sexual activity among young people
