Social Sex Attitudes in Adolescence follows Mary and Bob from infancy all the way to their courtship and marriage in order to demonstrate the importance of family life. A prototypical 1950’s social guidance film, the focus is on convention (Bob is a football player) and proper conduct at every point. From their perfect families, Mary and Bob are sure to come together – so long as Mary can avoid the parked car groping from men of lesser character! The perfect film to learn about the way sex and culture were perceived in 1950’s America, Social Sex Attitudes in Adolescence is a classic vintage movie.
