Abstinence plans obviously aren't working in MS and elsewhere.

Mr Desoto, "I think" for once I'm going to agree with you. As posted on the other sex thread under MS, there are way too many freebies issued thru various govmt. agencies for a young girl to clamp her knees together. Why shouldn't she get pregnant,...it feels good and our tax dollars end up paying for it. When a human has to pay for their mistakes is when they learn and earn mature responsibility, etc.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
