Although some teenagers equals sex with love, there are still many of them that believes that sex is not necessarily the expression of commitment. They know that making sex a casual thing will expose them to a lot of serious consequences. These kids are fortunate enough to be educated and rise above the following misconception:

  • All teenagers definitely have sex
  • Having sex is part of being adults
  • If your not having sex by 17-19, there's something wrong
  • A girl can't get pregnant during menstruation
  • You can't get pregnant on your first time Staff
