Abstinence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Ugh I see that the cretinous element of the Tory party (ie Nadine Dorries) is seeking to involve the state in the sex lives of teenagers.

Dorries has proposed a bill that would require schools to offer girls between the ages of 13 and 16 lessons on the "benefits of abstinence" from sex.

Dorries herself though seems happy enough to not abstain from sex with family friends (In January 2011, Dorries stated that, since December 2010, she had been in a relationship with John Butler, a married man who had been a family friend for 13 years previously and whom, she claimed, had separated from his wife shortly before.)

Here's why her bill is bollocks:

1 MPs are the last people on the planet who should lecture others about morals and sex.

2 Should not boys also be given these lessons? Why are only girls being targeted?

3 Telling a teenager to abstain form sex is as productive as trying to herd cats. Teenagers are hormonally programmed to bonk. A far better use of time and resources would be to ensure that the teenagers are fully cognisant about contraception, stds and the costs (financial and emotional) of having a baby at a young age.

Moralistic preaching about abstinence will fail, and will turn the teenagers off from listening to relevant advice about contraception etc etc. It will of course also make sex even more exciting, as it will be "forbidden".

    Shades of Orwell's Junior Anti-Sex League. Has Miz Dorries discovered "1984"?

    Because most of the electorate are cretins? How else can you explain the state we're in?

    OK, OK, I know we don't have a democracy any more so it can't really be our fault.

    The electorate seem to be encouraged to be cretins. Perhaps that is why?

    Perhaps this woman realises that abstinence is the only 100% method of avoiding pregnancy and infection with sexually transmitted diseases. In the past, people in fact knew about the effects of hormones, and girls and boys were mostly kept apart during their teen years. Girls especially were protected and supervised. Self control was considered desirable and was encouraged. All these measures WORKED to a large extent, as indicated by low teenage pregnancy rates and practically non-existent STDs of former times. The cretins are those who think teenagers should have sex lives, when it is clear that teenage sex is a disaster.

  6. Totally agree with Anon.
    If you want active sex do what they are doing now. Promoting sex education ad lib. Then herding the two sexes together. And making it sort of safe and even profitable.
    Oh and destroy marriage. Dont forget that.
    Maybe Sharia will sort it.

  7. @Anon - How did all that work when 'marriage' - formal or casual- was common from age of puberty?

    There is SOME anecdotal evidence that long before the 'morning after' pill, a low rate of birth in young girls was sometimes achieved by the 'months after' technique employing a long needle.

    Absent the germ theory of disease, there was VERY little evidence for sexual transmission. Of course, when we found out about bugs, even Clap (gonorrhea) and syphilis were, were widely accepted as being caught from dirty toilet seats without any 'sexual' connection.
