MESSAGE 4

A picture of macho looking adolescent boys in different poses but all seemingly lost in thought. The boys' gaze is focused on a think bubble which shows a woman about to undress. Another bubble shows a boy at the starting line on a track, bending over about to start the race.

 

Voice over:   The race is on. Hormones are raging. Get on your mark. Stay in your lane. Avoid the pitfalls of early sexual activity. Having sex with an older woman does not define who you are.
