So, as it turns out, people that were raised to be naive about sex are … naive about sex. Amazing! Data analysis has shown that virginity pledges are absolutely worthless. Well, not absolutely. People who take the pledges are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior.
But, as obvious as the results may sound, these surveys need to be done because certain groups that happen to hold belief systems that involve magical fairies (angels) and invisible friends (jesus) tend to not accept reality.
What bothers me is that the government is investing in these abstinence only sex ed programs. So, you could say that the government is spending money to give kids STDs.
I really cannot wrap my head around people actually planning on keeping their kids ignorant of sex. Of course we need to teach people sex ed. People are not born fully formed out of the womb. They need to be taught even basic things like proper diet and what to and what not to stick your dick into.
