Nowadays, teenagers are always doing unwise things. An example, is having unprotected sex. This can lead to pregnancy or even harmful STDs. So many things can go wrong during intercourse, and sometimes you wonder if abstinence would be most beneficial. I personally think if you do value yourself and you watch your body to make sure nothing endangers it, you can do as you please. Under the appropriate circumstances of course, and being aware of the consequences they may lead to. If I find out a person I admire is abstinent, I would probably admire that person even more, because people should respect themselves and only do it when the time is right. Doing things that make you feel pressured or you think you'll regret something later, is a direct sign of an unwise decision. Being abstinent can be like a reminder and keep you from harming yourself. However, abstinence can help you sometimes, its not to ALWAYS be this way. When you get older its good to get loose sometimes, and just have it. You have to enjoy yourself and just know your limits.
