Online Book Club Chapter 4: Not Everyone Is Doing It
Carrie Lukas is absolutely right! We are bombarded with TV shows and magazines portraying teens and young adults engaging in sexual activities. The November 2009 issue of Glamour magazine has an article entitled, "The Thing I Do Best In Bed," where readers detail their talents in bed.
This is the message our culture is inundated with by TV shows like FOX's Glee. In a recent episode, one of the lead female characters argued that kids are going to do it and it's ridiculous to teach abstinence, instead they need to be taught contraception.
Our culture has a low view of sex, so low in fact that we advocate engaging in sex just to get it over with, so we can say we're no longer a virgin.
What's wrong with being a virgin? Virgins can say, "I'm not willing to compromise, I want to give my virginity to the man of my dreams and no one else. If a man wants me then he is going to have to earn it!" As a married woman who embraced this philosophy, I can say with all confidence: Saving yourself for Prince Charming is worth it! My heart, soul, mind and body are devoted to the man of my dreams, and it is the most amazing relationship on earth.
