Summary The author of the best-selling Harrad Experiment issues a powerful call to change morality, education, and our attitudes about sex. He urges that the real root of America's sexual problems -- teen pregnancy, high divorce rates, and the spread of AIDS -- is sheer ignorance, which can only be overcome by instilling in young people new attitudes of caring and respect. In this provocative, entertaining, and thoughtful book Rimmer analyzes our nationwide sexual malaise and prescribes some radical solutions.
