Like A Virgin (For the Second Time)

I have written several times before about the silliness of abstinence-only sex education. It came as no surprise to me that Florida is second to Texas in federal abstinence education money. Those tax dollars go to telling kids that they can be a "secondary virgin" if they already did the nasty.

Take back control. Secondary virginity means that you care enough about yourself and your future to save sex for the right person and the right time – marriage. Deciding to start over is the hardest part.

Your decision to choose abstinence shows to others that you value yourself. Ways to help keep this commitment may include:

communicating your standards to your friends,
avoiding compromising situations, or
finding nonphysical ways to show you care.

If someone decides he or she doesn't want to have sex again then that is the person's choice. However, one can not become a virgin for a second time. That is not a safe sex choice. That is denial. We should have teens living in reality. Not have them pretend to be something they are not.
