    I'm Shug and I'm abstinent from sex!

    Being only seventeen, it shouldn't be much of a surprise. Although lots of teens between the ages: 15 and 18 are not. I don't really believe in the whole" marriage then sex" thing but I do believe in engaging in sex with some one you deeply LOVE and CARE for. And when you're...

    It's difficult being abstinent

    as a teenage girl especially when so many people aren't. I want to sooooo bad but I know that id regret it if I had sex before marriage. The smell control it takes is exhausting me. I don't know how much longer I can last.

    It's The Safest

    yet I get so much hate from people my age.

    I honestly could care less what they think but its just something I am spammed with even when it comes to my so called friends. But this is my path and I chose it for good reason.
