Film outline:

A group of Zambian youths talk openly about sex and their personal sexual encounters. As they share their experiences, a wide range of values and morals concerning sexual behaviours are discussed. From abstinence to condom use and peer pressure, we get a glimpse of what is on young peoples’ minds.

Questions for discussion:

  • How does this film make you feel?
    Melron believes that condoms encourage people to have sex at an early age and with multiple partners. Moses and Sebastian do not agree. How do you feel about condoms?
  • What is better – promoting abstinence or use of condoms?  Why?
  • Angela feels that peer pressure influences girl’s decisions to have sex. What do you think?
  • How can one avoid being pressured into having sex?
  • How do you feel about young people living in poverty having sex for money?
  • Can you talk about sex with your parents? If not, what makes it difficult?
