From AIDs to Monica Lewinsky to our increasingly explicit media, today's young people have been exposed to much more sex than generations before them. While research shows a slight rise in abstinent behavior and a growing return to modesty among today's teens, this new generation is also proving to be more tolerant about many issues including sexual identity. Join Juan Williams and guests as they talk with teens about their attitudes towards sex and sexual identity.
