As a young, professing Christian, how do you percieve the state of the virginity of those around you? Why do you believe/know so? Is it from incidents or situations you've seen, been in, heard about, or speculated on? Are you mostly around believers or just the public at large? What about kinds of social scenery (Church functions, party, chilling at home, etc)? Are you observing the working class or middle class or the well to do? When and where do you think they are having sex? Just tell me what you will regarding the status quo of the subject.
I ask because it is being discussed elsewhere by adults about the percent (%) of young believers who marry as virgins. I wanted to hear it from the young, Christian adults themselves.
This is sort of a sociological survey but I want to use it to hear and to know the task at hand with todays young adults. After all, it is prudent to know thy enemy/work.
Share what you percieve, but do clarify if it is substantial or speculative.
I'm a young adult myself and frankly I know very little substantial (maybe I'm naive). So I've got no stories but I'll say two things.
First, either people are very good at hiding it OR I'm even more naive than I thought. Secondly, among Christians there seems to be less free sex and more vulnerability within a relationship. With that in mind, it really makes me question this whole dating culture.
I know that wasn't much from me, but see what you can share on the subject. Keep it PG and reasonably within the board rules.
