“Let’s Talk About Sex,” a documentary created by James Houston in collaboration with Advocates for Youth, reveals how we manage sex education in the United States and how our attitudes about sexuality impact today’s teens. Parents, teachers, counselors, coaches, as well as individuals may find this documentary extremely helpful, important, and a true eye-opener.

Having said that we still highly recommend this documentary for a fact-based, intelligent look at the US culture and how we educate our kids about sex—or not.
