Many young people think that if they could finally experience sexual intimacy, then they would find real love.

Countless young ladies have heard the words, "If you love me, you'll let me...." In a desperate hope for someone who really cares, many have compromised their virtue.

As a result, emptiness and depression begin to hound the love-starved teen. The love and acceptance that you desire cannot be found in a passionate moment of immorality.

True love respects a person's purity. Someone may ask, "If it's really love, is it okay?" If it were real love, he would not even ask you.

If sex equaled love, then prostitutes would be the happiest people in the world! As it turns out, they are some of the most miserable people in the world.

Many times, teenage girls, looking for the love and acceptance that they wish their father would give them, make desperate attempts to get it from another guy. They come up feeling emptier and worse every time.

The big question young ladies ask themselves when they are about to lose their purity is, "Will he respect me in the morning?" The answer is always NO! And worse still, you won't respect yourself either.

Sex in the context of marriage is pure and holy and there is nothing to be ashamed of, Genesis 2:25 says, "The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame."
