    Monogamous homosexual relationships do the same. Should they be encouraged as well? What about masturbation?

    If you're having sex with ONE person and you're committed to ONLY having sex with that person - great. Masterbation is 100% effective against those things as well. Go for it.

    You must be kidding. Is that what you teach there. LMAO

    In a heterosexual relationship there is still the chance of pregnancy. And as you stated avoiding teen pregnancy was one of your goals. Since pregnancy does not happen in homosexual relationships should homosexual relationships be encourage along side abstinence as well?

    Abstinence should be encouraged for any sexual orientation until the couple is married or comitted to each other for life. It's not just pregnancy you have to worry about.

    Okay it is a monogamous gay teen couple.

    So should that be encouraged as well?

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    It sounds like your way of teaching would be "if it feels good, do it." If they carry that over to adulthood, isn't that saying things like,
    " I committed adultry because it felt good" "I used that girl because it felt good to me" "I slept with 20 guys by the time I was 20, because it felt good." What better time than teenage years to teach morals, restraint, and personal responsibility?
    I really can't think of anyone, myself included, who would say, gee, I sure wish I would have had sex with more boys while I was in high school.
    We should teach kids that it is normal to have sexual desires, but it's not necessary to act on them.
