Most of you will probably think that I am old fashioned, but I have always felt that the only form of safe sex is abstinence. let’s face it, if you don’t do it you can’t catch it. The problem today is that so many people have resorted to the argument, “they’re going to do it anyway so they may as well do it safely”, which is really a crock of bull because there is every chance that they may not have done it but figured what the hell “I am being safe”.
The other day my wife heard of a father who had put his 15 year old daughter on the pill, not because she was sexually active but because she had a boyfriend and it was better to play it safe. Unfortunately the pill won’t protect her from sexually transmitted disease. The real problem lies is that this poor girl may believe that by putting her on the pill her father has given her his approval to have sex.
For those of you who think that it isn’t that big a deal you may well change your mind after viewing this video.
Now it is pretty alarming when you hear that 1 in 4 teenage girls are infected with an STD (sexually transmitted disease) and that the most common infection is HPV (human papilloma virus) can cause cervical cancer! That’s right cancer! So by allowing them to have consensual sex you are basically giving them a loaded gun.
I don’t care what anyone one says, abstinence is the only method I will use in regards to my daughter. I will make sure she knows of condoms and such but I will also make sure she knows how much I disapprove of premarital sex.
