Losing the value of Sex

Lena - posted on 12/15/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




I've been doing some thinking. And I realized this.....

Nowadays, many kids have sex in high school and even middle school. This is nothing new. After many years of seeing this and being around such influence, many girls grow to see that there is nothing wrong with it. When I was in middle school, I loved school. I did my school work and tried to stay on top. And never had a single though of having sex with a boy I liked ever crossed my mind. When I was in high school, I dated a boy. We were 16. He cheated and dumped me because I never talked about having sex and always changed the subject if he ever asked. Having sex to me, meant doing it with someone I was to spend the rest of my life with. It meant commitment and love. Connection with that special someone.

What does it mean to you?

Why is it that I see young girls and boys have sex for no reason? Because everyone else is doing it? It it because if you don't, he will leave you? How ridiculous is that! I hope this is a wake up call to realize how much society lost the value of sex. That before they turn 18 they had more partners than they have fingers to count. And when it is time to get married and they find that special someone, they have nothing give.

When girls get pregnant and don't wanna get married because they are "too young" for commitment just amuses me. If you are old enough to have sex, you should be old enough to be committed to that person. Otherwise, why were you having sex with that person in the first place? For fun?

What are you teaching your kids about sex? Does it mean anything anymore?

for me i was 18 years old when i frist had sex we where living with each other and had been together for a year and ahalf before i did for the frist time.i was also to be married to him. so you know i did not let that crap of if you dont then iam gone crap win and you know what i am better for it i have friends that did not i saw what happend to them and that si why i choose to wait until i was old enough to make that dission for my self.and no i am not with the guy i had my first time with but i am proud to say i have only had 4 partners and was in a realtionship with all of them so i do think sex has lots it value but i dont regret having sex when i did. so i think it is just the way i was brought up and that has a lot to do with it. i have and also have had an open relationship with my mom and we talked about sex and i think that is what the problem is most perents dont talk to there kids about sex.
