What is everyone's thoughts on abstinence/celibacy and are you following it yourself? I'm 20 and when I was in middle school, I made a decision to remain abstinent till marriage (a decision I'm still keeping to this day). Society is definitely lose-lose when it comes to sex. If you're open and confident in your sexuality, you're labeled as a slut/whore (moreso for women than men from what I've seen) and if you decide to be more conservative, you're labeled as a judgmental prude (which I've gotten before and even had morons try to talk me out of my decision with absolutely dumb and overused arguments). So much for this day and age being "sexually liberated".
