Teens and Sex in the Post-#MeToo Era – March 2, 2020
Peggy Orenstein will discuss important issues facing teens today: Navigating consent, understanding hookups, talking about porn and learning about love. This talk explores the sexual landscape facing today’s young people — how it’s changed (often radically), and what parents need to know to raise a young person who approaches intimacy with responsibly, ethics, safety and, of course, joy. Peggy will also share insights from her new book Boys and Sex.
