Agreed that sexual desire is a natural thing and that there is nothing inherently evil about it. I just think that the media (almost all the sitcoms) present sex as something that automatically happens, and that teenage girls are especially vulnerable to this kind of pressure of "norms." All I'm saying is that I think you should include abstinance as an option, and give teens the kinds of skills needed to maintain their own boundaries and still keep a romance. It is possible; I've done it all my life, and relatively few guys were upset with me about it, and the ones that were, weren't worth keeping. Too often a girl will consent just to keep a boyfriend. And I think alot of guys are secretly relieved that they aren't expected to "perform." Teens these days have enough to deal with, this offers them an "out" if they don't want to get involved so intensely.
