Abstinence has a new face– if you can believe her. Paris Hilton has come out in favor of abstinence– at least for twelve months. She claims that she’s tired of having the reputation of being easy, and so has come out publically with a pledge to swear off sex for a year.
I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to believe a woman who constantly trades in sex. She used it– or was used depending on whose story you believe– to get famous. She uses it in commercials and her show. Now she’s using it to get attention yet again.
She does make a valid point, however, that young men and ladies should take to heart– some men and women are out there only for what may benefit them in terms of physical pleasure and once you give this to the other instead of it being the glue that unites, it turns out to be the “end of a conquest.”
Marital activity was designed by God to be for marriage alone for a point. In changes things about relationships and it can be something that keeps you and your spouse together– but it is something that is built upon trust, vows, and God’s uniting of two people.
So, while I can support the message– except it should be until marriage, not just until 12 months are up. Oh, and another tip– if you aren’t out there kissing boys, the chances are you won’t end up doing more!
