Be Loud, Be Proud

Virgins and former virgins of the world, be happy. You now all have a not-so-masked crusader telling you just why you should be so proud of your virginity. Being a former virgin is great of course, but virginity has some great perks.

George Watsky is a slam poet- turned- rapper who did the slam poetry circuit for a few years before going musical. You may recognize him from his video Pale Kid Raps Fast. He’s won tons of awards for his poetry and I personally give him some props for being the dorky white guy talking about some pretty important issues.
 
Back in 2006 he performed this poem V for Virgin which was propelled to popularity by Russell Simmons—a pretty cool guy in the music industry. Simmons started Def Jam records which produces music by Frank Ocean, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, Kanye West, and tons others, so he knows what good sound is.
 
This poem is pretty sexy for talking about not having sex. But in truth, not having sex is sexy! You get to enjoy life and experience so many more things without having to worry about STIs or babies.
 
Watsky points out all the best things about being a normal kid, which is as sexy as sexy gets. Because you know what? Those  kids who go to school, learn about cool TV, music, countries, and politics are the ones who are the sexiest. The kids who learn a unique sport, card game, dance, or language are the sexiest. Doing your best in high school, while you have time to try all the weird and wacky things that come with the unique privilege of being in high school…that, my friends, is sexy.
 
I think George Watsky got it right. Because no matter how many crushes you get and get over, hairstyles you run through, or friends you may have, the most important person in your life is yourself. So treat yourself right, and enjoy being your crazy weird self for as long as you can.

WHAT OTHER TEENS ARE SAYING:

I think it should talk more about not telling people I mean it is your personal business and you shouldn't be telling everyone about it that's where I screwed up and I lied before I really did and now when people ask me if I wanna have sex I just say I don't want to

ON JUNE 5, 2014 AT 11:29 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

Scientific research shows that teenagers brains aren't fully developed. That means that we aren't able to make good decisions all the time. Having sex is an adult thing. Until you are mature and really are capable of taking care of yourself and are a real adult, it's best to practice abstinence. I know that many teens feel like having sex is a cool thing even though it's so much more than that. Having sex is sharing your body intimately with a person that you love. If you're going to have sex, you need to do it for the right reason. All teens have a choice when it comes to having sex;it's completely up to you. However, I have decided to not have sex until I am married, because of my faith.

Teens /Teenagers tend to think that once they become a teenager they are grown-ups and able to make grown-up decisions. The choices made generally impact their lives in ways they never could have imagined. Often times teens just don't think and are heavily influenced by friends or so-called friends. It's important to know who you are and to understand that your choices affect you and those who love you. Making good choices is key and essential to keeping your goals and dreams alive and with focus making them a reality. Being young Is beautiful and you feel like this is the way it's going to be always. One day if you are lucky you will grow up physically ,
emotionally, and spiritually and make a beautiful life for yourself. Teens don't rush being a grown-up. take your time and enjoy life . Talk to a grown-up that will help you understand any big decision you are thinking about making. After all grown-ups have been around a lot longer . Embrace the knowledge they can offer so you can make better decisions that can benefit you and put you on a good path and start in life.

you can do all of those activities and be having sex too

ON APRIL 2, 2014 AT 12:43 PM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I'm sorry, but choosing to have sex is just as sexy as choosing not to. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but this article kind of shames those who choose to have sex. Someone who is sexually active can still participate in all those activities you mentioned above. Being a Virgin is no better than not being one and vice versa. You shouldn't put down one group to make another feel better about their choices. As long as their personal choice makes them happy that's all that matters.
