Eccles, GOED’s executive director, had some very good news to report. His agency, which oversees all business, tourism and film development for the state of Utah, had hit another home run.

Deep into his third hour of pornography, one teenage boy hopes to stay lost in his fantasy. Teens with a wide variety of sexual disorders have few treatment center options unless their sexual deviancy lands them in the justice system. Utah’s Oxbow Academy is among the few that help troubled teens before they break the law.
