Wonderful. Slightly old but really timeless. I love watching the faces as people watch the film! Very educational but a personal story too. Incredible views.

I show this to my anatomy and physiology class as an introduction to the reproductive systems. Perfect for high school upper classes and first year health professions majors.

everyone is preening for reproduction!
Review by Grandma on 07/17/20 review stating everyone is preening for reproduction!
the opening seems strange until the narrator explains that without consciously doing it everyone is looking good for the drive to reproduce. The ending is a bit surprising but I hope it makes my grand daughters and grand nieces think twice about having a baby, an actual birth with a young couple the story follows shows the head popping out! The followup is of course the new DVD, 9 Months that Made You.

Sex Education At Its Finest For Teens Up
Review by Joe on 07/17/20 review stating Sex Education At Its Finest For Teens Up
Id been looking for something scientific and attention getting, to help my grandchildren learn about the birds and bees. This is the perfect program to do just that. Whether they watch it alone or with an adult, they will receive and remember accurate information about the creation of life by a man and a woman. I think even most parents will learn more than myth and mystique if they prescreen it for their children. It is entertaining on top of everything else! Do not miss all it has to offer.
