Contrary to popular belief, most teens are actually NOT sexually active and of those who are, most regret their choice and wish they had waited. In fact, a national survey indicates nearly all teens (93%) said that they should be given a "strong message" to abstain from sex. In addition, many parents are interested in learning to communicate with their teens about these critical issues.
The AbstinenceFirst campaign will encourage teens to save sex and will remind them that abstinence is the only 100% effective way to avoid sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted teen pregnancy and many of the emotional risks that accompany premature sexual activity.
