I think abstinence can work with strong religious values indoctrinated from the youth up with the help of institutions like religious schooling and the such, but other than that no. I think preaching prevention encourages the opposite with young care-free minds and daily doses of television. I am all for protection over prevention.

I think it's depend on the enviroment. If kids are around people who think it's okay to have sex at an early age, then it won't work. If they're around people who actually say not to have sex at an early age then it will work. It also depends how you teach the subject of abstinence, if you teach it in a boring way, kids might not listen. If you teach it, to make it fun kids will listen.

Eventhough school teaches abstinence to the students the first thing on thier mind is sex. Most of the students just like to feel the pleasure of it. talking from experience but instead of teaching them of "sex till marriage" we should teach them the consequences. like pregnacy, and sexual diseases anything that would make the students think twice about sex. it helped me alot

I think it's really important to teach teens about safe sex b/c the truth is a good portion will probably not be abstinent. For example, whatever the author of this thread said about 2 condoms. I never even considered it, but I didn't realize that it would be more dangerous. It's probably best to say that abstinence will keep you safe from std's and getting pregnant, but in case you have sex here are the ways you can be safe. You won't be putting "ideas" in teens heads b/c we've all heard of sex basically by the time we start walking so educate away.

if i was giving lectures on abstinence, i am not afraid to show pictures of diseases. it'll show that if one person is sexually active and has more than one partner also, never used a condom. one of the major consequences if having sex before marriage.
but things happen during sex like the condom might fall off or whatever. i heard from my friend that his friend's condom broke.

Protection is prevention, prevention of pregnancy. So if you do not like teaching prevention our only choices are to encourage children to have sex and get pregnant or not to teach them at all.

Studies do show that teen pregnancy ratings are significantly lower among children with highly religious backgrounds so you may have a point elsewhere.

Actually, I was pretty sheltered. My parents were fairly liberal so I am not entirely sure how this came out, but I really –did- learn the physical process of sex from my sex education class. This being said, it did not occur to me that I could actually put that process into action until a few years later. I have pornography to thank for that.

What I want to address is the statement that we should teach safe sex because many kids are going to fail abstinence. So we should not teach abstinence because the reality is that not everyone is going to be abstinent. By this reasoning we should not teach safe sex because not everyone is going to succeed in using safe sex. By this same logic we could conclude that since a significant number of our children are going to do drugs, we should teach them the safest methods of purchasing, inhaling, and injecting these substances.

I think that we should teach safe sex to reduce the number of abortions being obtained by misguided teenage girls who’re easily manipulated by Planned Parenthood “doctors,” and so that we can reduce the spread of life ruining STDs like AIDs.

Well before little boys are one years old there already pulling on their joy stick. For what ever reason i figure for comfort most likely try to teach them would be a complete wast of time. What girls should be taught that boy will say anything to get sex and have no other goal. Girl should understand they genral will have to most if not all burden placed on them.

the sad fact is southern girls are more likely to lose their virginal 1st than northern girls but wait... dammit it all. It's nice to be nearly 25 and virgin, hell most of my guy friends think I am gay.

Well at twenty five I would say you have problems, being gay is probably not one of them. Interpersonal skill and relationships big problem. Look the worst thing they can say is No something that most people have down by two. Move on if it your goal to get your thing wet. What is (every sperm is sacred) do not do that you will go blind
