#37132 Sexual Assault & Harassment - Date Rape: A Violation of Trust (Run time 29 min.) DVD $79.95

Use this program to eliminate the confusion so young adults understand exactly what these things are-and the attitudes and biases that typically accompany them-before anyone gets hurt. The video firmly reinforces the concepts that rape has its roots in hate crime; date rape is just as wrong as rape by a stranger; a victim is never "asking for it," no matter how the person dresses; and no one ever "deserves it." The video also underscores the rules of the dating game: a date is not an invitation for sex; No means No; and the inability to give consent doesn't mean Yes. Interviews with rape survivors and mental health professionals shed additional light on the trauma caused by rape, the process of post-rape emotional recovery, and the importance of post-rape support by family and friends.

The program also meets the children of lesbian and gay couples and talks to pupils at a nursery school where one in six has gay parents.

This program identifies the most common STDs, other than HIV, and their symptoms and treatments. It emphasizes the need and the means for preventing them; it also illustrates the social effects of STDs in its focus on a woman diagnosed with an STD who has to decide how to tell a future spouse, and an infected couple who are afraid to show their faces on screen because of the stigma attached to STDs. The need for better education in schools and at home is stressed, as well as the overriding need for STD prevention. (20 minutes)

This intense film realistically captures the heart-wrenching experience of personally coming to terms with HIV, forcefully bringing home the idea that the disease is as avoidable as it is lethal while touching on issues such as peer pressure, sexual conduct, and familial relationships. Teachers and counselors working with students whose attitudes toward sexual relationships put them at risk will appreciate Exposed's emphasis on prevention and its "yes, it can happen to you" message.

This program examines the use of the drug Rohypnol to sedate women in order to take sexual advantage of them on dates. It follows two such cases through interviews with victims and their attorneys. The drug, both odorless and flavorless, can be mixed with alcohol and renders the victim easy prey for her attacker. Available in 64 countries, the drug also leaves its victim with complete or partial amnesia, making prosecution of offenders nearly impossible. This program puts the spotlight on a growing social problem. (26 minutes)

In part one of this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel, Jonathan Hawes' parole officer, two of Hawes' neighbors, and a woman who blocked Hawes' attempt to move into her neighborhood address the impact of Hawes' residency in Gaston, Oregon, and why a predatory sex offender is held in greater disdain than even a murderer. In part two, in which one of Hawes' child victims recounts the attack, Ted Koppel, Hawes' mother, and Jonathan Hawes himself discuss Hawes' struggle to break with his past-and the struggles of others to keep him chained to it. Some content may be objectionable. (39 minutes)

Using dramatizations, this program offers information to teens on how to recognize an abusive relationship, and what to do about it. Media glorification of sex and violence, dysfunctional male role models, and thirst for control are examined as the roots of male violence toward women. Forms of abuse range from criticism, insults, humiliation, withholding affection, control over decision-making, and name-calling, to hitting, biting, and forced sex. A discussion on the importance of self-esteem, and how to rebuild it after leaving an abusive relationship, concludes the program on a hopeful note. (22 minutes)


#7514 Sexual Orientation - Multiple Genders: Mind and Body in Conflict (Run time 39 min.) DVD $129.95

Instinctively, we say there are two sexes. But does this always reflect reality? In this program, Dr. Stephen Whittle argues that it does not. Whittle further contends that society must recognize transsexuals, like himself, and others, like Arthur and Del, who are hermaphrodites-sexual hybrids. Arthur has male and female attributes and wants to keep them in the interest of maintaining his psychic balance and identity. Del, born female, favors her male side and has written a book charting her physical transition to an "inter-sex." A theologian addresses the moral implications of multisexual orientation, while a physician and polygendered people ask: Is sex the same as gender? Are inter-sexes mistakes or part of nature? Do parents have the right to demand reconstructive surgery for their polysexual newborns? A thoughtful and measured investigation of a seldom-discussed and provocative topic. (39 minutes)
