Sample text

Female, age 19) I had friends who said they would wait until they were in love. (Female, age 21) Many friends said it was fun, though some cried to me because of the guilt they felt. (Female, age 16) You're cool if you do it. (Female, age 16) It was joked about a lot. Mostly the guys made perverted sex jokes. In high school I went to a Christian school, so it was always “honeymoon” jokes, but it was inappropriate. (Female, age 19) Some of my friends talked about oral sex and how it was not “real” sex.

Male, age 19) I would have liked to have heard how sex tears the soul. I wish my dad would have given me more insight about his teenage years and girls in general. (Male, age 18) If they had talked to me about sex, I would have wanted them to tell me that I should wait for the person I am going to marry. (Male, age 21) I wish they would have been more open and told me more about how bad they felt when they didn't stay pure for each other. (Female, age 16) I wish they could have told me more about what God says about it.

These “friends” have almost played a home wrecker role, just as if a married person had an affair. Her respect for herself and her family went out the window completely. When I ended it I felt used, and I knew that he was hurt. Our friendship was crushed. I gave all to get nothing back Eventually, almost always, one of the “friends” develops more than friendship feelings for the other person, and their “friendship” is never the same. Our culture has moved from courting to dating to hook-ups and friends with benefits.
