That all might be true (didn't read all) but it's not likely to get those diseases unless you sleep around. A responsible person would not get any of those. Also, if you practice abstinence to keep from getting disease then I would assume you don't eat in restaurants, don't eat meat, don't touch doorknobs, shopping carts or use public bathrooms. Although it's your life and if you choose to not have sex, that's your business. I just think you are taking what you learned in school, letting it scare you a little too much and that could affect relationships you have in the future.

Geeze, Heart attact, stroke or physical injury, WHAT A WAY TO GO!
Sorry don't mean to offend anyone, but as a consenting adult, married 20 years, I do not agree with you.
Hell of a good time to cause heart attack, stroke or physical injury!
Life is too short to not enjoy !

I am forever thankful for the knowlege I learned in abstinence ed. classes
I am curious where you went to school.
I am involved with schools and have never heard of them "preaching abstinence" Did you go to private school ? or was this reglious after school programs.
I remember that time frame and there was a big scandel when the former Miss USA wanted to speak to to schools in Jax about safe sex and parents had a fit.

Default The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Promote Sexual Health and Responsible Sexual Behavior

excerpt, highlights mine:

Sexuality is an integral part of human life. It carries the awesome potential to create new life. It can foster intimacy and bonding as well as shared pleasure in our relationships. It fulfills a number of personal and social needs, and we value the sexual part of our being for the pleasures and benefits it affords us. Yet when exercised irresponsibly it can also have negative aspects such as sexually transmitted diseases--including HIV/AIDS--unintended pregnancy, and coercive or violent behavior.

To enjoy the important benefits of sexuality, while avoiding negative consequences, some of which may have long term or even life time implications, it is necessary for individuals to be sexually healthy, to behave responsibly, and to have a supportive environment--to protect their own sexual health, as well as that of others.

Sexual health is inextricably bound to both physical and mental health. Just as physical and mental health problems can contribute to sexual dysfunction and diseases, those dysfunctions and diseases can contribute to physical and mental health problems. Sexual health is not limited to the absence of disease or dysfunction, nor is its importance confined to just the reproductive years. It includes the ability to understand and weigh the risks, responsibilities, outcomes and impacts of sexual actions and to practice abstinence when appropriate. It includes freedom from sexual abuse and discrimination and the ability of individuals to integrate their sexuality into their lives, derive pleasure from it, and to reproduce if they so choose.

NAH..
While the diseases you listed MAY be able to be contracted through sexual contact... that is not the only way to contract most of those.
Not to mention Heart attack, stroke.. yeah, those don't come from having sex.
You can work with the general public and contract some of those.

I understand that you are trying to "save the contamination of the world"
But its just not a reasonable argument to say that people are only going to be in a relationship and have a "mate" for procreation only.

Oh, I have a question for you as well.
So, if a couple is married and they have no STDs or anything like that... and they are trying to have a baby, and one (or both) are infertile, are they wrong to attempt without being sucessful? I mean, they would be enjoying themselves, and they wouldn't have a baby from it.. so is that wrong in your almighty eyes as well?
Just wondering. I am always looking for a loophole. lmfao.

Consenting, Safe, Adult sex is a good, no a GREAT thing. Wow, my husband would not enjoy this abstinence thing at all! I am all for sex EDUCATION for teens, because we need EDUCATED, not IGNORANT teens. Preaching abstinence is a nice idea, but quite unrealistic. My children are well educated on the whole sex thing (age appropriate ofcourse) but I do assume that if they wait until 30 to be married that is is quite likely they will engage in a sexual realtionship with someone they love. Who knows, maybe they will marry that person, maybe not. Either way I have taught them to love and respect themselves and their bodies. Sex isn't shameful!
