From The Chicktionary:
Anonymous asked: "What do you think would be wrong reasons for someone to be abstinent from sex until marriage? I mean, of course there are obvious pros to waiting (like not getting stds, unplanned pregnancy, whatever) but in which situations do you think that abstinence could possibly be harmful?"These are not all-encompassing examples, but I think it’s harmful whenever people alter their sexual behavior:
-to fit in with their friends or to win favor with their peers
-to conform to expectations based on their gender
-due to a lack of information on or access to contraception and sexual health resources
-out of shame for their sexual orientation or preferencesAll of the above leads to a culture of silence around issues of sexuality. The result is that this incredibly integral part of our lives becomes a topic of misinformation and stigma, which translate into real-world consequences for human health and well-being.
