But to say screw abstinence is like saying screw steel toe boots on the assembly line because there are other measures to prevent injury.

I enjoy walking barefoot, but it's not quite the same as sex.

Abstinence and abstinence education are not the problems, abstinence only education is the problem because we know kids are going to have sex whether we like it or not.

What is "abstinence education"? You can educate kids about sex, but I don't see how you can educate them about abstinence.

Trust me, I know a lot of girls who practiced abstinence in high school and not because they were religious but because they were smart.

How does one practice abstinence?
