“C’mon baby, you will if you love me.”
This is completely unloving and manipulative behavior for these teens. Sex is an inappropriate expression of love outside of marriage.
And yet, there is a nugget of truth to these selfish requests.
Sex is a valid and even essential expression of love and commitment within marriage.This is true for both men and women, though I think that men often feel this need more potently.
In many marriages sex is shoved aside, like it is just some fringe benefit of signing the marriage contract.
Or worse, it is treated as something base, carnal and dirty that needs to be kept locked up and let out only when the beast is out of control.
