As a teen you will be faced with many pressures as you go through life; sex being one of them. It’s one of the most common teenage problems.
Now days, everything seems to be about sex. It’s on videos, TV, in songs and it’s probably talked about greatly at your school. There’s no escaping it.
Even though you can’t control the way society is and what’s put out in the world, you do have control over what you do, with sex being one of them.
Being a virgin doesn’t mean that you’re a lame, square, geek or any of those stupid things. It’s actually the opposite. It’s often portrayed that if you’re not having sex, you’re lower than dirt and no one will like you. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Just because you’re a virgin doesn’t mean that anything is wrong with you. You’re fine. It’s everyone else who is pressuring you into sex who has the problem. Keeping your virginity is a beautiful thing and here’s why…
You’ll Prevent Any Surprise Babies
There’s nothing funny about being a teen parent. If you’ve ever watched the show, 16 and Pregnant, then you know what I mean. It’s serious business.
A lot of teen sex results in pregnancies for young couples and you’re not exempt. Don’t think because it’s your first time having sex that you can’t get pregnant or impregnate someone. You’d be silly to think that.
Many first timers end up pregnant and that is not something you’d want to go through. Maybe you have a friend or know a teen parent. Look at their situation and tell me if that’s something you’d want to go through.
Remaining a virgin will ensure that you don’t get any surprises and that you can enjoy being a teen for as long as possible.
STD’s Won’t Be Able to Touch You
Here’s what bhg.com had to say about STDs among teenagers…
Of the 12 million cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that occur each year, 3 million (or 25 percent) are among teenagers. About 13 percent of youth ages 13 to 19 contract an STD each year.
That should be enough right there to make you not want to have sex. STDs are nothing to play around with and can affect you for the rest of your life. Are they curable? Some of them are, and some of them aren’t. However, sex is a risk and you don’t know what your partner has.
STDs don’t discriminate and many teens don’t practice safe sex. Abstinence is the only way to be 100 percent protected from STDs. No condom or contraceptive in the world can guarantee that.
Once You Lose it, You Can’t Get it Back
Point blank, when you give it up, it’s gone and there’s no getting it back. If that’s the case, why not make it special?
If you have sex just to see what it’s like or you do it because you’re pressured into it, you’ll come out being highly disappointed.
I can’t tell you how many times a girl has had sex with a guy, dumped her and then she’s left feeling stupid. It’s not worth it ladies. Your cookies should be more important to you than a one night stand.
I know that guys get clowned a lot for being a virgin, but it’s certainly not a bad thing for you either. It may seem cool to try to have sex with as many girls as you can, but it’s not. One it gets around about how you really are, then no girl will want you. Try to have much more respect for her as well as yourself.
Having sex can be a beautiful thing, but only when you’re in love, when you’ve found that special someone and in my eyes, when you’re married. Your virginity is a precious thing and you don’t want to just give it to anyone that easily.
How do you feel about virginity? Do you think teens should wait? Let’s talk about it.
