62, So that narrows it down to ...eternal virginity. You can never trust anyone completely to not have an STI. Even a virgin could be carrying something they aren't aware of, and even people you think you know inside and out could be lying to your face. Only imbeciles judge those who get STI's. Oh, I mean, social stigma and puritan nonsense ftw! Right guys?
Oh that poor child. Sick AND stupid. Must have been a buy one get one free on negative traits.
It could have been due to a shitty or nonexistent sex education at school. Parents should definitely take most of the responsibility for informing their children about STDs, but a crappy school program could give them a false sense of security, as they could assume their children are learning everything they need to know there. Then again, sometimes kids do things that catch you by surprise before you realize just how fast they've grown up.
#35- that's what they did at my school every time we had sex ed. Our school system made us have 2 days of sexual education talk in 8th-10th grade. It was the same woman every single time and her exact words were "sex is great! But waiting till marriage is even more great!" It was kinda funny in 10th grade because one of the girls in the class was pregnant. It was pretty funny, and a little ironic!
I've only heard bad things about sex ed in the US... Is it really that bad? I mean, here in Argentina (at least in my school) they taught us all about STDs, symptoms and how to prevent them, methods of prevention in general, the risks of unprotected sex, etc. The teachers were also very open-minded and would answer every question we might have, and we were actually able to feel comfortable around them. I have studied male and female anatomy (reproductive system) and how it worked since I was around 10. All in all, we've been taught that it is ok to have sex, as long as you're responsible, have chosen the right person (so that you can get only the best from such "unforgettable experience"), and are sure you are not making a decision you are going to regret later, regardless of age (Being too young is still looked down upon, though, because at 13, for example, you still don't really know what you want in most cases, and we've been taught that too). From what I've read and heard, sex in the US is more about God, sacred marriage and being a legal adult, rather than it being something natural, that the human needs to stay healthy. I also feel that people in general is scared of facing it and talking about it with teens and preteens, and I don't understand why. I might be wrong, though, but that's how I feel. I'd like someone to reply, please...
I'm sorry to break your positive image of us, but I have rarely met somebody who actually cares about the teachings of God. Maybe I'm meeting the wrong people? Our schools don't really care about sex education around here, which doesn't really help prevent all the dropouts they get from pregnant teens.
Clearly you did a great job of educating your daughter about safe sex and general hygiene. Bad Parenting FTL
She was self medicating with Clorox wipes so clearly was misinformed (if informed at all) and just completely oblivious to the negitive effects it would have on a very sensitive part of the body. If she was well educated about her own body and cleaning products then she should have known Clorox wipes won't work and would just give her a infection. I highly suggest her mom give her the "talk" again cause she wasn't quite thorough enough on the female body and and every day used items.
Im glad you said "most" because I was going to be resentful of that, most teenagers believe that in order to go anywhere in life you have to have sexual intercourse first. Could anyone tell me if it is a bad thing that I am almost 17 and still have not? I like to think that I am still waiting for the right girl.....
118- There's no rush in losing your virginity, its just bragging rights for guys insecure enough that they want people to think they're "the man" because had sex at an early age. I was fooling around a lot when I was younger but I decided to wait until college before I went "all the way." For me, I didn't want to be "that guy" that "stole" some young naive girl's innocence as I had that impression drilled into me early on. (I'm not saying the logic was sound or even made sense, it was just the though I had way back when.) So to answer your question, being a virgin at 16 doesn't mean anything whatsoever. Your body doesn't know any difference from one orgasm to the next so as far as it's concerned, you became sexually active the first time you masturbated, lol! ;) So no worries, it'll happen when it happens if and when you let it. You haven't missed some irreplaceable experience or opportunity and there's nothing wrong with you for it. Cheers! :)
Just imagining that makes me cringe .... ah goodness! No offense to you sir, but that is a VERY dumb thing to do. Why didn't she try to use a lot of soap in the shower or something?
