    For The Next Time...

    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...

    Well I'm not but I did

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I believe that sex is something to be saved

    for marriage. That being said, I am not a virgin. I have only had sex twice with one person. I was in a bad place and didn't value myself. I regret it. I wasn't in love with him. The next time I have sex will be with my husband. I can't wait to experience sex with someone...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I believe that sex the most intimate thing

    that God has given us. God created sex to be a good thing, obviously, but He also intended it to be the most holy of actions between a man and his wife. Reason being, is that when you see your spouse naked without covering of flaws, it is a model for how God sees all of His...

    "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 ;)

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...
