Waiting until marriage could be considered a golden age ideal, especially with the rise of female empowerment and the recognition of female sexuality (about damn time). Abstinence is conventional and may seem to some as suppressing desire, but I find it quite empowering.
- Part 1
My choice to wait until marriage isn’t something I talk about all the time because it doesn’t come up often in conversation, but when it has I (thankfully) haven’t really been met with any negativity. In the cases where there has been opposition, the response has usually been “oh when you meet someone you’ll want to have sex with, you’ll change your mind,” or “you don't know what you’re talking about because you haven’t had sex, so you don’t understand sex.”
These comments have always bugged me; just because I haven’t had sex doesn’t mean I don’t know what sex is and what sex means to me.
