Research Paper: Teens Engaging in Premarital Sex
Transcript of Research Paper: Teens Engaging in Premarital Sex
DID YOU KNOW THAT?
Most people don’t consider the emotional effects of premarital sex.
“A study conducted by the University of the Philippines Population Institute in the year 2000 showed that 23 percent of 16.5 million Filipinos aged between 15 and 24 have engaged in premarital sex.”
Comparing the teenagers today from the past generations, the teenagers in this generation does not consider virginity or being sexually pure before marriage.
This research will show some ideas of the teenagers who has already committed to premarital sex.
•To know the emotions they feel after having premarital sex.
•To know if they consider relationship before engaging premarital sex
•To be aware on how teenagers thinks about premarital sex.
Sex is a basic human need. Every person has the desire to enjoy a physical relationship with someone they care about. And in the context of marriage, those moments of intimacy can bring pure joy and pleasure to your life. But when it's used in the wrong way, sex can cause guilt, anxiety, depression, disease and low self-esteem. How do you make the right decision about when — and with whom — you should have sex?
If you've made a wise decision about what's best for your life, you won't be as likely to give in to your desires.

•Make a commitment.
Make a promise to yourself that you won't engage in sexual activity until you're married. The best way to make sure you stick to your word is to share your promise with a pastor or parent.
Keep your brain in control.
. Even though your body may send other messages, remember having sex even one time can negatively affect your life forever. The only 100% “safe sex” is no sex at all. Though some forms of birth control may protect you from sexually transmitted diseases, HIV infection and pregnancy, they're not without failure.
The best way to enjoy a sexual relationship is inside marriage, where you know the person you're intimate with is healthy and where a pregnancy would mean a baby born with two loving parents.
•Keep yourself out of irresistible situations
Be prepared to say “no,” but stay out of settings that might require it. If you're involved in a close relationship, avoid situations where sex will be a temptation.
Even if your companion is just a friend, if it's someone of the opposite sex, protect yourself from doing something you'll regret. Spend time together in public, and in groups. Keep other friends around to hold you accountable. That way you'll know that even if you have a moment of weakness, you won't have sex.
Have a plan.
Even the most careful couples find themselves in compromising circumstances. When things start to get hot and heavy, know where and how to put on the brakes. Plan what you will say and do to keep your commitment to purity. Say something like, “I really do care about you, but I don't want to have sex until I'm married.” Be as clear and as firm as possible. Then leave the situation quickly.
It's never too late to start over
. Even if you've had sex before, you can still set new, better boundaries to get your sex life on the right track.
Let your significant other know that you care too much about yourself and him or her to let sex undermine the future of your relationship. Focus on other ways of getting to know each other, such as common interests or new pastimes you can share.
The type of method that we used in the research paper is a questionnaire survey. We used this kind of survey for us to be able to gather or collect information from large numbers of participants. We also got an interval measures by using what is called a cumulative or Guttman scale. Here the respondent checks each item with which they agree. The items themselves are constructed so that they are cumulative.
We surveyed 35 teenagers and based on the results, most of them are male who first had sexual intercourse. This means that teenagers nowadays tend to do this out of curiosity and some, just like to do it. So as students, we need to control and balance everything that comes into our minds because in the end, we might as well regret things that we've done because we have nothing to do but to forget it. Having sex has nothing to do with what we have right now.There is so much to do in our lives than doing non-sense things.
At the end of the day, it's not "what happens" but "what ought to happen." Okay, so people blab about how premarital sex is the "in" thing.. but along with it, so are divorce, or broken families, or disrespect for women. These things come in packages. So this is the reality - the truth is, one ought to say NO to premarital sex.
Even if you say that you love your partner, are you really sure about it? True love is about self-giving. But you cannot give yourself if you don't own yourself - if you can't control your sexual appetite, if you can only give in to base impulses, if you don't know how to be faithful to your girlfriend/boyfriend.Sex is pleasurable, but in itself, it is but fleeting. The goodness of sex in the context of authentic love is pleasurable, pure, and lasting.
Most Filipino teenagers this generation don’t live as traditional as before. They have new perception about sex. What we learned about this was to continue what is right and to wait for the best time to do sex. Virginity is our greatest gift to our husband.
