This is my first post about sex. But no worry, this is not an 18SX material.
I recall somebody mentioned that teenage girls who were sexually active tended to have low self-esteem. But the reverse was true for teenage boys. Boys who were sexually active tended to have high self-esteem.
I do not know if there is a proof for these statements, but they certainly make sense. Young girls who have low self-esteem use their bodies to gain acceptance, or love, among guys. Or they like to boast about their sexual encounters among their peers. Guys, on the other hand, simply treat sexual activities as a physiological fulfillment or power over the weaker sex.
Assuming that the statements are true, what are the implications? Now, if we want to discourage teenage sex, we should give more attention to the girls. We can’t tell the boys to lower their esteem, but we certainly can help raise the self-esteem of the girls.
