Looking at the relationship between the religious attitudes of Christianity and the act of premarital sex is an interesting avenue in the streets of American society, whose Judeo- Christian tradition has emphasized the purity of its youth in the sexual arena. From an emic viewpoint, as Mrs. Elizabeth Guillette, defined I will observe if religious beliefs influence the sexual activity of Christian teens. I believe that I am looking at this behavior from the inside, as a youth whose friends have participated in or refrained from premarital sex. I am currently abstaining from sexual activity and desire to understand how other Christian youth view this issue. The beauty of waiting for true love, yes; so ideal. Woe; not many who have claim to desire to delay this immediate gratification have done so. As a youth, I was taught the principle of being a virgin until marriage in our evangelistic, Pentecostal church. My peers and I took our sacred vows of abstinence; only for me to observe the easy promiscuity of those same youth for years to come. In essence, I began to wonder if being a religious youth really did deter you from engaging in premarital sex, or if these youth have an equal chance of engaging in this behavior as any nonreligious youth?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
