[Kein] Sex am Sonntagmorgen.

Na, das ist mal richtig überraschend. Abstinence Only Programme bringen nichts.

Keine Ahnung wovon ich rede? Die amerikanische Regierung vergibt Förderungen an Programme, die die folgenden Inhalte haben:
For the purpose of this section (Section 510), the term "Abstinence Education" means an educational or motivational program which
(a) Has as its exclusive purpose, teaching the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by abstaining from sexual activity;
(b) teaches abstinence from sexual activity outside marriage as the expected standard for all school age children;
(c) teaches that abstinence from sexual activity is the only certain way to avoid out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and other associated health problems;
(d) teaches that a mutually faithful monogamous relationship in context of marriage is the expected standard of human sexual activity;
(e) teaches that sexual activity outside of the context of marriage is likely to have harmful psychological and physical effects;
(f) teaches that bearing children out of wedlock is likely to have harmful consequences for the child, the child's parents, and society;
(g) teaches young people how to reject sexual advances and how alcohol and drug use increases vulnerability to sexual advances; and
(h) teaches the importance of attaining self-sufficiency before engaging in sexual activity.
Diese Programme beinhalten keinerlei Informationen über den Gebrauch von Kondomen oder anderen Verhütungsmitteln (in Amerika ist bei Teenagern die Rate von Schwangerschaften viermal, die von Abtreibungen achtmal so hoch wie in Deutschland).
Nationwide, more than 700 Title V, Section 510 programs receive up to $50 million annually from the federal government in order to teach youth about abstinence from sexual activity outside of marriage. Additional funding from state matching block grants brings annual spending for Title V, Section 510 sexual abstinence education programs to $87.5 million.

Jetzt ist eine Studie herausgegeben worden, die die Effektivität von vier dieser Programme untersucht hat.
Youth were enrolled in the study sample over three consecutive school years, from fall 1999 through fall 2001, and randomly assigned within schools to either the program or the control group. The results in this report are based on a survey given to 2,057 youth in 2005 and 2006, roughly four to six years after they began participating in the study; 1,209 had participated in one of the Title V, Section 510 abstinence education programs and 848 had been assigned to the control group. By the time the last follow-up survey was completed, youth had entered their mid to late teens, permitting the researchers to reliably measure program impacts on teen sexual activity and other risk behaviors.
Das Ergebnis: Kein Unterschied. Nichts. Nada. Null.

Das einzig Positive an dieser Kein Sex-Erziehung ist, dass es die Rate ungeschützten Geschlechtsverkehrs nicht noch erhöht.
Students who took part in sexual abstinence programs were just as likely to have sex as those who did not, according to a study ordered by Congress.
Also, those who attended one of the four abstinence classes that were reviewed reported having similar numbers of sexual partners as those who did not attend the classes. And they first had sex at about the same age as other students — 14.9 years, according to Mathematica Policy Research Inc. [...]

The students who participated in abstinence education did so for one to three years. Their average age was 11 to 12 when they entered the programs back in 1999.
Mathematica then did a follow up survey in late 2005 and early 2006. By that time, the average age for participants was about 16.5. Mathematica found that about half of the abstinence students and about half from the control group reported that they remained abstinent.
"I really do think it's a two-part story. First, there is no evidence that the programs increased the rate of sexual abstinence," said Chris Trenholm, a senior researcher at Mathematica who oversaw the study. "However, the second part of the story that I think is equally important is that we find no evidence that the programs increased the rate of unprotected sex."

Fragt sich, warum Programme, die so gute Tips wie die folgenden geben, keinen Erfolg haben:
Sometimes it is hard to say NO, but there are many other things you can say to break the moment and draw the line.

Set firm boundaries. You could say, "Excuse me, I need to go to the bathroom." or "I don't want to mess up my hair." or "Why don't we go get a milk shake!"

Oder Kleidungstips: "Pure Style" Fashion Show Clothing Guidelines
Skirts and Dresses:
-can not be very tight fitting (follow shirt guidelines)
-should not have too thin of material and if needed a slip should be worn.
-can be no shorter that 4 fingers above the top of the kneecap
-Dresses only:
-must have a modest neck line (no lower than 4 fingers below collar bone )
-no thin straps (such as spaghetti straps)
if necessary a dress with straps two fingers wide may be worn, if the whole dress is very modest and no bra straps can be showing, but must be worn!

More Modesty Guidelines:
6. If you wear a knee length skirt and go up stairs at work, church or school, guess what shows to the people behind you on the stairs? Your thighs! Even if they are in the firmest shape, this is not a body part for a classy lady to expose. Then what else happens when you sit down? Now we're talking about a skirt that covers your knee even when you sit - unless you stand up all day and never use stairs.
Gute Güte. Wie wäre's mit folgendem Abtinence-Only-Schwur, um die Erfolgsrate zu verbessern?
I, [MY NAME], hereby pledge:

1. To never let grubby boys touch me – unless it's just fun innocent stuff like tripping me and pulling my hair. (But only the hair on my head!)

2. To never wear trampy stuff like shorts or t-shirts or open-toed shoes, which basically tell horny perverts that I'm a major tramp who's just asking for it.

3. To never do rough stuff like ride horsies or bikes with hard seats, which could break my vagina's freshness seal and make me totally unlovable.

4. To never let tampons violate the sanctity of my hoo-hoo, because tampons are really nothing more than thirsty little albino penises.

5. To never have premarital sex, because Jesus doesn't want anyone messing around inside my girly hole until after His church makes some money off a wedding.
