Forever Is A Really Long Time
The Truth About Sex and STDs
by Kelly S. Bolton View author's profile page

Overview


Forever Is A Really Long Time is a fictionalized account of the negative consequences that can often accompany a sexual relationship. The characters are based on real people who had their lives turned upside down from a consensual sexual encounter. The thirteen different characters in the book recount their stories in a written journal left on the coffee table in their doctor's office as a hard learned lesson and warning of the very real, long term, painful, and emotional problems and diagnosis they encountered after a sexual. The stories are a crash course in sex education and bring to light the very real turmoil that is often accompanied by sexual relationships particularly at a young age. The book is fictional but based on real life scenarios and facts that are too often unknown to young and even many older adults.

Description


Forever Is A Really Long Time takes a look into the world of a practicing OB/GYN and her attempt to better educate all of her single patients, in particular the young women, about the real life, negative, long term consequences of having a sexual relationship or encounter. Dr. Thompson sees these girls and women in her practice daily and is on a mission to reduce preventable diseases and unplanned pregnancies. Dr. Thompson, is often frusrated by the lack of knowledge her patients have on how risky sex can be. She is happiest when patients come to see her before they have sex for the first time so she has a chance to educate them. Dr. Thompson asks her patients that have struggled with diseases, unplanned pregnancy, and emotional tumult to write in her waiting room journal their own personal stories and strugles in an attempt to reach more young women. The stories will hopefully open the eyes of more of her patients so they understand the risks they are taking with their health. Dr. Thompson, like all good physicians, is not preaching or lecturing her young patients. Her goal is to inform them of all the facts and the often grim reality they may face. Her goal is to make sure more women know what can happen, what does happen, to women every day and let her patients make an informed choice of whether they are ready to have sex or not. The book follows thirteen people on their journey of pain, suffering, and long term consequences as a result of sex outside of a long term, committed relationship. Unfortunately, most of the people who write their personal story for Dr. Thompson's book were unaware of how risky their behavior was. Dr. Thompson's ulitmate goal is to make her patients stop, or at least pause, before entering a sexual relationship particularly at a young age. She believes that by giving people a glimpse of her daily life, she can ultimately reduce the number of sexual partners her patients have which would result in fewer diseases and unplanned pregnancies. Dr. Thompson believes in adults making informed decisions and is doing what she can do inform women and girls by telling real life stories so they can make a more informed decisions. The book contains different stories from different characters with different diseases mixed in with facts and statistics that all sexually active adults need to know.

Forever is a Really Long Time This book is a jaw dropping unbelievably well written! I highly recommend it. It should be a mandatory read for all teenagers and anybody that is even thinking about having sex. Trust me even well educated adults will learn something. It's sad to think that these STD's can and should be prevented. I am grateful for this book that shares these true accounts of lives that will NEVER be the same. Thank you to the author Kelly Bolton for writing this book! I hope it finds its way into many hands and gets these people to think how their actions can dangerously affect the lives of so many others. Read more

Forever is a Really Long Time Relevant and must have information on STD's and relationships presented through the lens of various young women ... all of whom learned the hard way that "forever" really is a long time. The sexual saturation of marketing to our young omits the risks and glorifies the pleasure. The emotionally charged testimonies in this book tell the unfortunate back stories the billboards ignore; while informing and educating the reader in the process. An important book for parents and young people! Read more

Forever is a Really long Time Most educational and realistic book I have ever read, there are many informative STDs I didn’t know about from school that they don’t teach you, and the short stories of each women is very emotional and makes you think twice about making irrational decisions. I highly recommend it to any teenage girl or anyone who lives a risky lifestyle. Read more
