Where did you learn to be promiscuous?
When did purity become a dirty word?
There is more than one way to stimulate
And commitment is indeed a verb

The pressure he will put upon you
Or the pressure you will put onto him
Is equal and opposite to the regret
And the feeling that you have sinned

Where did you learn to be promiscuous?
When did purity become a dirty word?
Physically able to copulate
But think about the consequences first

The pressure they will put upon you
To lose your innocence as quickly as them
All because they regret their actions
And want you to follow their trend

Where did you learn to be promiscuous?
Don't give your virginity so care free
Absolute control over your emotions
Absolute control over your body

The pressure they will put upon you
Will be laughable in years to come
Your friends, they rushed and found nothing
You waited patiently and found the one
just wanted to say thank you to anyone who has commented on this poem. I am glad you have been debating amongst yourselves.

It was never my intention to try and tell people how to live their lives. I was just offering my opinion.

Also I wanted to make it clear that at no point do I say the subject of the poem is female.

This was written with young people in mind.

I am not 'slut-shaming' as a few people have said. I had never even heard that term lol.

As far as I am concerned people can and will do as they please. I am just aware that sometimes as a young person it is not always easy to remain a virgin. I wanted this to highlight that it is infact ok

xxxxxxx

Yes it is important to save yourself for the one.. I believe a bit differently however. I believe to save yourself for your TRUE love. I've been in love but only once was I ever TRULY inlove and it was my honor to give myself to him even though now I will never see him again... Never regret because your first time is beautiful.

Yeah, I do agree. I think I was just writing this as I was frustrated at too many young people feeling pressured into doing something because they thought it was the thing to do. It seems to be getting more and more cool for boys and girls to sleep around and talk about how many people they have been with. I just wanted to say that actually it can be cool to wait for someone really special too :)

thanks for reading and for the comment :)

This is beautiful. I wish more people thought like this. Only one of my friends does, and in the end one is enough to help you stand up to the others. Great work :)
