Abstinence teachers practice what they preach

Melody Laluz and Claudaniel Fabien are both abstinence teachers in Chicago, and they are about to get married despite never having kissed one another. The pair, which instituted the no kissing rule as a way of avoiding temptation, had elaborate ways of quelling their natural biological impulse to copulate. They avoided being totally alone together, and when they cuddled while watching TV, they made sure to always be sitting up rather than lying down.

I can only shake my head in disbelief over this kind of behavior. The cleverness of avoiding fulfilling their desires only demonstrates how natural an urge sex is. I’m happy they are content in their arrangement, but I find it naive of them to go around to students in the peak of their hormonal development and think their message will prevail. Abstinence teachers refuse to give real working sexual advice to teens, and instead indoctrinate them with platitudes on the sin and evil of sex outside of marriage. The result is higher teen pregnancies and drop out rates in schools.

And cuddling without at least a little making out? What has this world come to?

    actually, the major result of abstinence-only education is that teens are something like ten times less likely to have contraception available when they do have sex.
    if you hear someone say “abstinence only education is good” or any variation thereof, you can assume they either don’t know what they’re talking about, or they have an active dislike of healthy teenage human beings.
