Things have definitely changed since 1998. For one, it was common that a significant majority of teens had already heard SOMEONE tell them there were good reasons to save sex til marriage. It wasn't 75% of the class, but it wasn't unusual that 50%+ were already thinking they would wait for marriage. Now, I'm surprised when a public school class has more than 30%.
Because, well, doesn't that seem alarming for 14-15 year olds?!
All the while their HEARTS are telling them sex is a much bigger deal than people let on. It's sad to see young people, males and females, who thought their "firsts" would make their life and relationships different in a positive way, but only ended up scarred and confused. All the while youth culture keeps insisting, THEY are the ones who are "abnormal." Seriously? Everyone else can have sex that means nothing, what's wrong with you?
The ONLY solution that presents itself to a teenager is to do the same thing over and over again and just hope for different results. You just picked the wrong One. You need more experience. Next time it will be different.
Insane, isn't it? Copulate, rinse, repeat. Next. Copulate, rinse, repeat. Might make someone want to hurt the people who rejected them...?
