Heck, what's even the point of having a strong relationship if you wanted to just go ahead and have sex with anybody you want. It's not right at all. Especially if you have a kid. That kid will never have a normal life because of that and it's not the child's fault. Not to mention the millions of STDs out there which condoms don't do anything against.It's hard to wait but just giving in is wrong. How'd you like to know after you got married that your spouse slept with a ton of people and just didn't care about your abstinence that you saved for them.

(so basically, if you're a girl, there are more disadvantages). i mean SURE, it feels good and EVERYONES doing it, but if you wait, youll more likely be the one with the nicer car, house, job, driving by the homeless lady with ten kids that used to be your classmate. so, its ur choice......
It's absolutely depressing seeing how we're going back to pre-20th century ideals, and otherwise moralizing through domination by numbers, and not evidence or practicality.

It is why teenagers are renowned worldwide for making particularly stupid decisions -- their brains are not fully developed yet, and the hormones are wreaking havoc on their decision-making capacities. Knowing this, and knowing the risks and consequences of sex (physical, emotional, and otherwise), is it really wise to encourage teenagers to go out and experiment with sex? Wouldn't it make more sense to pressure the teens to wait until they are mature enough to understand fully the consequences of their actions before they engage in risky behaviors such as driving cars, operating heavy machinery, getting married, or having sex?

Not for those who live just for the moment.So it becomes obvious why a majority of teens( probably not now, due to the fact that it's currently "cool" to be abstinent) think it's lame or not worth the wait.I practice it, and i don't believe that there's any other way to treat sex. It's waay to intimate to be treated so casually. And it's not something to be handed out like Halloween candy, either. Hate me for this, but i just think it's a matter of self-respect.
