Book Description

May 3 2010 Teen Mania
Teens today face a bombardment of the glorification of promiscuous sex from every side. From MTV images and music lyrics to television programs popular with teens, the message communicated is that everyone is doing it and those abstaining from sex are abnormal. Friends with benefits has become too common, almost expected. Seeking to stand up for teens and exhort them to speak for sexual purity is the youth organization, Teen Mania. In Friends Without Benefits, founder Ron Luce encourages teens to know the facts (physical and biblical) about sex and sexuality so they can make wise, informed choices rather than just follow the crowd. With their identities and self images at stake, teens need a clear, encouraging, hopeful message like this. Not what feels good, but what is right. Not what is tempting, but what is true. Designed for teens, here are honest stories and discussion of issues they need to hear before it is too late.

3.0 out of 5 stars Are "Friends with Benefits" Harmful? July 1 2010
By Charlotte Stone - Published on
"Relevant" and "Informative" are the two words that come to mind after reading Ron Luce's newest book, Friends Without Benefits. In a time when a lie is spreading like an epidemic and leaving a massive wake of broken young hearts, it must be exposed. The book is a series of well-positioned testimonies of young people who are screaming through the text "Don't make the same mistake I did!" We no longer have to look to the older generation to hear these words, but they are coming from the mouths of teenagers who are begging those around them to flee from these destructive social norms. If you are still wondering about the effects, or if there even are any, from a "Friends with Benefits" relationship, listen to the stories of these teens who are still so young and yet have many deeply painful experiences to share.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely True June 23 2010
By Meredith Lockwood - Published on
Friends Without Benefits is truly an awe inspiring book littered with personal stories that bring revelation without offense. When I read this book I was astonished by how much pain can result from one choice made within a relationship. But what was really encouraging were the testimonies of healing and hope that can be obtained even while facing the toughest of situations. This book is spot on. It hits every area of our relationships with the opposite sex, the temptations that we face and the ways to overcome such oppositions. I highly encourage you to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have if you have teens July 10 2011
By adayriddle - Published on
This is another "Teen Mania Book" and is as good as all the rest. To be honest I had never heard the term "Friends with benefits" until recently. When I heard it I was utterly and completely shocked! How could such an idea of casual sexual behavior have permeated our culture as such an astonishing rate.

This book boldly and opening addresses this topic with the full backing of the scriptures. In the pages of this book a battle is waged against this evil thinking giving our children the power and knowledge to stand against these things. It is especially helpful that there are insights written from other teens on the topic of each chapter.

Thank you Gospel Light for this review copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative and eye opening June 28 2010
By Hannah Lockard - Published on
In Friends Without Benefits, Ron Luce compiles hundreds of youth's thoughts about sex - many who have had sex and many who haven't. They talk about their regrets and also their victories as well as things they wish they found out from their parents. It was eye opening to me and I would recommend this to teens and parents as parents need to see that their kids really do want to hear about sex and for teens to hear from their peers about regrets and good principles. Ron Luce gives good principles to follow to help teens on their path in purity. Two thumbs up!
2.0 out of 5 stars Way too much information for innocent ones ! Nov. 6 2013
By Valentina Neumiller - Published on
I got the book for my 12 yrs old daughter. Decided to read it first before giving it to her.
Way too much information for innocent girl!
It may give her some ideas, actually.
For example, cases how some people lost their virginity for the first time - how, where, who was around.
As from my perspective - too blunt and straightforward.
