Teens & Sex: Navigating from Shame and Regret to Integrity and Joy in a Complicated Landscape

Peggy Orenstein
October 9, 2018
Ms. Orenstein addressed our students and faculty on the same day.

An internationally-acclaimed expert on the challenges facing girls–and their parents–as they come of age in today’s culture, Peggy Orenstein, author of Don’t Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex, and Life, will provide a clear-eyed picture of the new sexual landscape girls and boys face in high school through college and reveals how they’re negotiating it.
With humor, surprising facts and compelling anecdotes, she opens up a much-needed conversation about an often silent subtext of teenage life, without ever reducing its complexities to simplistic “truths.” Touching on the ways in which porn and its sexual myths have seeped into young people’s lives; the role of “hookup culture”; the impact of media and social media; how what “counts” as sex has changed, Orenstein understands what needs to be said, and why we need to say it.
