Faith's monologue 'Sex for a shower'

  • This monologue is intended to provoke discussion about attitudes to sex and love. Students should be encouraged to challenge Faith's expressed views and to explore: What does her Grandma mean by 'sex don't mean love and love don't mean sex'? Why do you think Faith hesitates at the end when she says 'it ain't a big deal to me. Swear down. It don't mean nothing .......... Right'? Does Faith really want more than sex from her relationships?

  • Students could draw up lists of the short and longer-term risks and benefits of the choices Faith is making about her relationships and sexual behaviour.

  • This character monologue deals with teenage sexual health.
