    Call me crazy, call me weird,

    call me whatever you want. This is something I intend to do. It is mainly for religious reasons. At the same time I am a major worry wart and I would be worried about getting an STD (no pun intended) or getting someone pregnant, even with protection (because they aren't always...

    "Im like the Porsche at the auto-show,

    there's no 'test drive'." The best things in life are worth waiting for, & must be earned. In return, you are guaranteed quality ;)

    Gay Virgin, Waiting For Marriage?... What?

    That is usually the reaction I get when people find out. But it doesn't matter this is how I feel. This is how I have always felt, bump how I was raised. I'm almost twenty never had sex before and I just so happen to be gay. I want to be with someone who loves me for me and who...

    It's Something I Really Want To Do.

    I have always decided to do this since I was little. It is what I want for myself. To save myself for marriage is something that I think would make me proud of myself. Not many girls nowadays are doing this. I think that it also is part of me keeping my self respect. I hope...

    It's Not A Religious Thing

    I'm saving myself for marriage purely because it's what I think is right.  I'm not doing it for any religious reasons, I'm an atheist.  I just think that it's the right thing to do, to save your body for your husband/wife.  If you 'sleep around' with other people...

    My Desicion

    Im 19. all of my friends are having sex but Im still a virgin. To be honest, I wasn't planing on saving myself in the first place. Actually, I met the perfect guy and was about to lose my virginity when I found out that he cheated on me with another because "it took me so long to...

    Pure

    I am saving myself for marriage and have planned to do so my entire life. I have been raised in a Christian home with good people who love me. God came into my heart when I was 6 years old and since then I can't even start to tell all the great things God has done for me and...

    It's a Tough Road, But I Know It Is the Best

     I'm Catholic, and even a lot of my Catholic aquaintances find me a bit conservative in terms of my morality, but my faith is the source of all joy for me. Of course I struggle (who doesn't in today's world?), but when I fall I try not to give into despair. ...

    I am strict catholic- I believe

    that the commandment, "thou shalt not commit adultry," not only means cheating is a najor sin but also sex before marriage is and you will be punished (except if you were raped of course. Thats not your fault). However it also goes deeper than that. I do not see how a girl could...

    Although I believe in God,

    my decision to wait until marriage isn't about tradition or religion, it's about me respecting myself and having self confidence. I hope to find a man who loves me, & only me, for who I am, realizes what I am worth, & respects me: that is my definition of true love. The man who...

    My Decision...

    Not too long ago, I made the decision to save myself for marriage. I wasn't raised in a Christian home, but I gave my life to God recently. In His word, he says to save sex for marriage and I believe what He says is right. Sexual Immorality is everywhere and there are some...

    and I would like to encourage all of you who are standing up to all the pressure of society and peer group and saving yourself for your husband (or wife) and your marriage.

    And It's My Decision

    It used to be because of religious reasons, but I have since drifted away a bit from that and I have decided that I wasn't only wanting to save myself because God wanted me to, but because I want to. I've seen how sex effects my friends that do, and I don't like it. I don't...

    Saving Myself

    My fiancee and I are not having sex until our wedding night. I know he has had sex once, and I have accepted that, as it was before we met. I have given him head twice, and made him ***. Once on our prom night, and once after we got drunk at a party in college. Both times he...

    True Love Waits

    I'm not saving myself for marriage because of religious beliefs. I'm saving myself because I think it's the right thing to do. I wouldn't want to get to my honeymoon and explain to my new husband why he isn't the first one to love me that way. I want to marry a virgin, though I...

    Eternal Life

    There is no other pleasure in the world that I have experienced that is more joyful than having sex with the woman I love above all other women in the world, even more than I love my mother. Sex is so great that it feels like a magical way for humans to get a teaser of what it...

    I am divorced and I have children, so I'm obviously not a virgin, but as much as I love sex I'm saving myself for the woman I will one day marry. There were moments after the divorce where I could have given in and just gone out to have a "wild time", but I controlled myself...
