Beyond the Sexuality In the movie “Young & Beautiful”, it tells us a story about how a 17-year-old girl named Isabelle became a prostitute, and how did she get out of it. It happened in Isabelle’s 17, because 17 is a special age for us. When we are 17, we are passionate and full of novelty. We want to get out of control from our parents; we want to become mature rapidly; we expect to leave the teenage world and become an adult; we eat the forbidden fruit on a sly; we attempt to explore who we are, and what the world is. But eventually, all of us will find the answer, though some of us may take a detour. In the movie, Isabelle works as a prostitute and lives in a secret life. Once one of her client John died when he was having sex with her, and her job was exposed to the police and her parents. When she went to the psychologist, the psychologist doubts why she wanted to do the job. Indeed, every audience is curious about it. Why? Her family is not poor, and her mother gave her enough money to support her school life. She doesn’t buy luxuries, and she just saved all the money she earned in the closet. Then why, why would she still do this filthy job? But Isabelle replied, “It was simpler, clearer”. Apparently, it is simple. The old rich men with lots of money want to have sex with young beautiful girl. The purpose is undisguised and straight. It doesn’t need any word, promise or flatter. And she charged the money to assess the worth of herself. It seems like she is exploring something. She is discovering her sexuality, and the relationship between male and female. She is eager to know everything about the complex world. However, why did she choose such a way? I think it is related to her family and her childhood. Maybe it is a compensation for her natural father. So she is more curious about the sexuality and love. Her parents took apart when she was young. Though her stepfather is very kind, she still feels

    Safe Sex Not No Sex With increasing teen pregnancies and high Sexual Transmitted Infection (STI’s) rates, our school system is flawed with its Title V Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage Program (abstinence-only). Even though abstinence is the only absolute way to avoid unwanted pregnancy and STI’s, it is incorrect to say it is the only way to avoid them.

It is generally used in reference to individuals who are presumed not yet of marriageable age or between adults who will presumably marry eventually, but who are engaging in sexual activity prior to marriage.
