Amy DeRogatis Quotes

Young people are told that they are standing up for Christ and resisting America's sexualized culture by claiming virginity as a countercultural, radical stance.

In the programs she is describing, young people make virginity pledges. However when research is done on these programs, it turns out that about half of the youngsters that take the virginity pledges engage in sex within the next 5 years—the same percentage of young people who do not take any pledges or participate in programs to delay premarital sex. However, taking a counterculture approach for what 50 years ago was the mainstream culture shows the extensive cultural change that America has made.
