This time to help parents teach sexuality to their children: Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents.
Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents may be purchased in book form at your local or online bookstore or the full book may be downloaded for free (click on button below). The book is also available essentially at cost ($2 per book), to organizations (dioceses, high schools, parishes, or others). For information about this extraordinary program please see our Publisher's Pledge below.
Catholicism has clearly been in a crisis of sexuality education for decades. Very few Catholic teenagers and young adults know and love the unsurpassable teaching of Mother Church on sexuality. Even in homes where Catholic values are strongly emphasized, the children often fall into serious sexual sin as adolescents and young adults. To address this crisis, Dr. Richard Wetzel, who gave us the "incalculably valuable book," Sexual Wisdom, now offers the course he gives to his own 16 to 17 year-old Catholic teens: Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents.
Every Catholic teenager should take this course (or its equivalent), even if the student has had some sort of sexuality education in school.
Praise for Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents:
"Dr. Wetzel’s medical expertise emerges very clearly from the pages of Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents
and the many references to Sacred Scripture and to the teaching of the Church make it a valid instrument for those
among parents, priests and teachers who are charged with forming our Catholic youth. In an age such as ours which
the Holy Father has identified an “educational emergency”, this book will be of great assistance."
We are determined to confront the merciless and vulgar sexual revolution that our tragically ignorant Catholic youth are engulfed in. In this spirit, the non-profit corporation Sex Education for Advanced Beginners Inc., the publishers of this book, will provide as many boxes of the book needed, essentially at cost (the schools, parishes or dioceses are responsible for printing and shipping costs), to any Catholic high school or diocese that will give a copy to the parents of every student in the 11th and 12th grade to take home and discuss with his or her parents. We recommend that schools send home a letter with the book that explains to parents the options of going through the course with the student or just having the student read it on his or her own. (Download a sample letter to parents here). This offer is to all high schools, to all parishes and to any other organization in the U.S. who will distribute the books to the parents of 16-17 year olds or to adults. This may be done after Sunday Masses at a table set up outside the Church, at confirmation classes, after chastity presentations, etc. Please join parishes and schools across the country in this exciting new program!
Also, we are excited to offer a similar program to all Catholic dioceses outside the U.S. For them, we will email the computer files and permissions, at no charge, so that the books may be printed locally. See our FAQ section for details.

the potential graces that this course may bring to teenagers
While some of these programs offer a valuable introduction to the subject of sexual purity to younger teens, this approach generally has been a tragic failure. We are not opposed to other chastity programs as long as they consistently address the sensitivities of the less worldly students and more cautious parents. Clearly, some students are inspired by these programs. They can admirably prime students for the feature presentation, but cannot deliver it. We suggest distributing Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents along with chastity programs so that students are not only entertained by an inspiring preview, but receive the full message in a form that they can take home and study.
Sending home Sexual
Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents to parents for them to evaluate with
their student is like sending home a copy of a classic feature film so that the parents can watch it with the student,
the student can read it alone, or anyone can refer back to it at any time. Showing the feature film to students
effectively equips them to face the serious challenges to their purity that inundate them in contemporary society.
To give the whole story to young people who are honestly seeking answers can be truly transforming, and the fact
that so many Catholic youth are not getting it is a great injustice.
Future plans include other versions of the adolescent course: Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents in Spanish, Sexual Wisdom, the Bible and Adolescents: A Home-Based Course for Late-Adolescent, Bible-Believing Students (for non-Catholic Christians) and Sexual Wisdom for Adolescents: A Home-Based Course for Late-Adolescent Students (secular version).
