I firmly disagree. I was raised smack in the middle of the Midwest where that kind of thinking prevails, despite ample statistics that show how ineffective it is - ineffective and emotionally damaging. By saying that a person is "worth waiting for" to have sex, it is as good as saying the opposite: if you don't wait to have sex, you're worthless. And even for those who do wait until marriage (not that every couple has to get marries or is legally allowed to do so) doesn't solve anything either. A ring on your finger doesn't automatically mean you know how to use birth control or prevend diseases or infections that could be a result from sexual acts, exposure to biological material (like blood), or passed from parent to child. Sex and sexuality is more complicated than "Speak no evil" "Hear no evil" "See no evil"

Nature makes sex easy.
Not society.

That whole "abstinence thinking" failure trail is what forces kids into dangerous risky situations. If sex and sexuality and nudity were normal and natural and casual around the house, space and they knew they could bring home a bf/gf and go to their room for some uninterrupted teenage banging, there'd be less date rape and teenage pregnancy, and it would also be safer because they do have a supply of condoms in their dresser drawer. They'd never been caught without one because a condom is like the life jacket in the boat when the moment comes that you need one, it's too late to go get one!
