The following videos from Amaze explore several important questions about sex and relationships. They are geared towards young people, aged nine to fifteen.
How to Know if You’re in Love
What is love? Different types of love can be felt for family members, friends, pets, or romantic partners. While you can’t always control your feelings, you are in charge of how you express love and how you communicate your feelings to others. This video addresses what it feels like to be in love, the experience of heart break, and the importance of knowing the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships.
Rejection: It Happens To Everyone
Rejection is never fun. Even though it might feel bad for a while, it is important to acknowledge your feelings, talk to a trusted friend or adult, and know that out of rejection can come positive opportunities. This video emphasizes that rejection is not a sign that something is wrong with you.
Healthy vs Unhealthy Relationships
Throughout your life, you’ll have many relationships, including friendships and romantic relationships. It’s important to know what makes a healthy relationship, such as compromise and support. Relationships should make you feel good about yourself and who you are.
How To Get Out Of An Unhealthy Relationship
Now that you know what makes a health relationship, what should you do if you find yourself in an unhealthy one? This video highlights the signs of an unhealthy relationship and explains step-by-step instructions for what to do when breaking up with someone. If you feel unsafe at any time during or after a break up, it is important to speak with a trusted adult. Remember, being in an unhealthy relationship is not your fault.
Are You Ready To Have Sex?
Being sexually intimate is a special and unique experience, and only those involved in the relationship can determine whether or not they are ready to have sex. Before having sex, it is important to talk with your partner about using protection, consent, and boundaries and know the physical and emotional risks involved in having sex. Consent is necessary each time you have sex and that you don’t have to have sex until you’re ready.
