I went to a dumbass Right Wing redneck high school, and instead of teaching kids how to use a condom they showed us pictures of genitalia deformed by STDs and said 'this is what happens if you have sex.'
I obviously don't believe in contraception but the strategy used at your school is horrible.
the way it was explained to me about abstinence education.
don't think of a blue elephant, don't think of a blue elephant, don't think of a blue elephant, don't think of a blue elephant. What are you thinking of. A blue elephant. This is the problem with abstience education is that they say don't have sex don't have sex don't think of sex blah blah blah blah, and you are still thinking about it.
my problem with contraceptives is it makes people think they are "safe" from pregnancy they think it is full proof and fail safe. So they have care free sex, they aren't going t get pregnant. My contraceptives will work. But what if they don't, what if you forgot to take it a couple of times and the effitiveness rate goes down, what if your boyfriend uses an old condom that has a hole in it. My big issue wiht contraceptives outside of the fact that the pill F's up a women's harmon levels and causes an increase in divorce rate. Is that people think that sex is something you shouldn't have ot worry about, you can have it as much as you want to without consequence. But that isn't the reality. The primary goal of sexual relations is reproduction its not the only one but it is one of them. Its not a good thing when you mess with the body to prevent it from doing something it want's to do reproduce.
the great thing about no protection sex is that the fact that you (women) could get pregnant or you could get a girl pregnant is a deterent in itself. If people realize that when I have sex I could get a girl pregnant or I could get pregnant (depending on your sex) Contraceptives remove this natural barrier. That is what I believe you need to push. First teach people the beauty of sex teach them how it is natural to have sex teach them how it is part of God's plan. BUT it should be in moderation, it should only be with your one life time spouse in marriage. Stay away from the dangers of STD's scare tactics don't work. If you can convince someone that waiting is true love then that is the most effective way to do it.
