Sex has become just a fun recreational activity (just ask Skive!). We need to get back to Christian values. Virginity should be a "virtue" and sex should be kept within a stable relationship, or better in marriage. Lets not forget the basics. The real purpose of sex is to continue the species, not just for a bit of fun. Therefore it should be respected rather more than Skive respects it.

if sex is just 'to continue the species' then why do we have those little bits (like a clitoris) that make it feel good?!
It feels good because when people were animals (not so high intelligence) they wouldn't do it if it didn't, and we wouldn't exist today.
Skive- yeah, its an innate desire to reproduce- every living thing has it, the same as to eat, drink and otherwise survive.
And Humans and Dolphins are the only animals that have sex for fun.
Rubbish. Other creatures don't need sex to be 'enjoyable' for them to do it.
Hi, im 19. I lost my virginity a year ago. Alot of people when i was at high school, lost it at around 14,15. I chose to wait until I found the right person and was completly ready. Alot of my friends who lost it young, regret it and wish they had waited, and from reading the posts here, I can see alot of you do too. Isnt virginity supposed to be cherised? But nowadays as suppose its seen as "dorky" to be a virgin, why do teenagers feel the need to waste themselves on drunken nights in bushes!? Good for them if they are in a loving relationship and really want it, but too many people are just out to shed the label of virgin! Even people selling there virginty on ebay! Why has it become such I thing people are desperate to lose?
btw, i think you can guess i dont like much of American Pie.
Nothing's happened to Virginity.... something's happened to the people losing it.
Some people give in to peer pressure, some don't. To be honest though, it seems that a lot of young people (mainly girls) lose their virginity because it's 'the thing to do' and 'guys respect them more' if they sleep with them. At least, that's what I've gathered from programmes like 'No sex please, we're teenagers'.
I however, would never give in to any form of peer pressure, I just couldn't do it - I hate people telling me what to do. So, thus I'm still comfortably Virginal at 19 simply because I've not met anyone worth sleeping with yet!
i think peer pressure is more hearing people talk about it, not them outwardly telling you to loose it
you feel left out like you're missing something, so people go and lose it
girls at school in my year deffinatly brag about the so called sex they're getting
one girl in my form is sleeping with a guy 9 years older who has a gf
and another (some may recall) is sleeping with a guy nearly 20 years older for his money.... :no:
2 also havent returned at all this year cause they're having babies
Peer pressure? I don't know anyone who pressures others to have sex, partners an exception...
Look, people have sex because it's enjoyable and integral to their relationships with the opposite sex - end of.
Peer pressure? I don't know anyone who pressures others to have sex
TBH, you're talking shit if you don't think teenagers put pressure on their peers to have sex :yeees:
The media aren't your 'peers', and of course there's going to be an exposure to it through the media when majority of the population are adults, just like there's exposure to anything else that's part of adulthood.
But the problem is still people still presuming abstinence takes the higher moral ground.
