The pressures of guilt

The pressures of guilt

My prom is coming up soon and a lot of my friends have told me this is the time to lose my virginity. In fact, some of the guys I know are already making hotel reservations.

I don't understand why they think it's important to lose their virginity now. Still, I don't know what to say when they talk about it. How can I answer my friends when they ask why I won't be going along with their plans for the evening?

The simplest answer is: Virginity isn't something to "lose. Don't give the most intimate act of love to someone who won't be with you for the rest of your life. And don't believe that "everybody's doing it.

Some people will scoff at your pledge because they find it threatening. They've messed up, and they want to think that everybody else does the same.
