Overview

"I had no idea having sex as a teenager could affect the rest of my life."

What does a three-pound brain have to do with one's sex life? A lot, actually.

Breakthroughs in the burgeoning field of neuroscience explain the impact of sex on the developing brains of adolescents and young adults.

Through scientific data put in layman's terms, this book demonstrates that:
¿ Sexual activity releases chemicals in the brain, creating emotional bonds between partners.
¿ Breaking these bonds can cause depression and make it harder to bond with someone else in the future.
¿ Chemicals released in the brain during sex can become addictive.
¿ The human brain is not fully developed until a person reaches their mid-20s. Until then, it is harder to make wise relationship decisions.

Parents and others who care about young people now have the facts to steer them away from making life-changing mistakes, and lead them toward reaching their full potential.

    Hooked reviewed by a nurse

    This book is a must read for every healthcare professional, educator, pastor, parent, teen, and abstinence organizer. It is Phenomenal. It is informative on every level. Just as another commentator wrote: "It exposes the dark side to teen sexual behaviors." I agree totally. We need to really sit down and start evaluating why these young people are in such trouble. As a Registered Nurse who sees young people daily, I am comfounded as to why they are so angry. This may be one of the root causes. I see them hurt and confused, and frankly they are so young and "Boy and Girl Crazy:, for lack of a better word. This book will give us a professionals, parents, and as adults an insight on something that these kids are do closed mouthed on. Please take the time to read it. You will be amazed as to what you will learn, and how true this book actually is. I am recommending it to everyone that I know. <BR/>Tracy Tucker, R.N., Indiana.

    Tremendous Insight

    Having the science about the connections between a man and a woman brings great insight and discretion to the subject. Finally, scientific reason to support old fashioned common sense. Although the research is noted for those who want to dig deeper, the material is laid out in a very understandable quick read for those wanting usable information in a nutshell. Great book.
