About the Sex Respect Education Program

Sex Respect®  The World's Leading Abstinence Program

by Coleen Mast is

  • a positive down-to-earth public school health program
  • designed to provide teens with information about themselves and their relationships
  • full of positive attitudes about sexuality from a secular health perspective
  • helpful for teens, teachers, and parents to logically defend the reasons to abstain from premarital sex

The Sex Respect® program teaches teens that saying “no” to premarital sex is their right, is in the best interest of society and is in the spirit of true sexual freedom.   Developed over the years of practical use with teens, the Sex Respect® workbook communicates with teens on their terms, involving the teens, their parents and their teachers in interactive exercises, discussions and creative writing.  

The curriculum defines what is human about 'human' sexuality, recognizes influences on sexual decision making, identifies emotional, psychological, and physical consequences of teenage sexual activity; discusses the history and purpose of dating as well as healthy dating guidelines; teaches how to say “no”; shows how to change former sexual behavior and explores the responsibilities of marriage and parenthood. It is being used at the seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth grade levels.
