My teacher brought it up in psych class. I'm genuinely concerned I tried looking it because I'm highly concerned. Are there other factors. Someone explain and help

why would young women now still feel guilty about having sex?

Purity ring / purity culture/ publicly declared abstinence reached a very defined presence in the 90s-2000s inside evangelical church influence but also in the general public. I'm pretty sure even the Jonas brothers took chastity vows and wore rings or something

Yeah, but that was inside evangelical Christianity. The Jonas Brothers used to be very Christian. Their dad was a pastor and they were raised Assemblies of God.

Now at least one of them gets off on strangling women. We live in a sick world.

Those messages go beyond the outside of religious reach, though. It affects how sex is talked about by schoolteachers, it affected how I felt about sex even though I didn't even have a family that enforced purity rules or made sex seem bad. I got all of it by cultural osmosis

Did you also grow up in a very conservative area? I'm from a small town in a red state. So even public school had some Jesus and abstinence education thrown in there. I guess the difference for me is that I never believed any of it, and I didn't think anyone except the most serious of Christians actually planned on waiting for marriage. I personally never felt guilty about sex.

Wait, what? I definitely missed that...

It's Nick Jonas.

I was never a fan, but it's still upsetting. He's a famous person in the public eye with a famous wife that he probably abuses behind closed doors.
