I have copied the following from a Blog! Your Thoughts?
"Have modern teachings/concepts/ideas/mores/values become counterculture to Christian teachings: no fornication, no adultery?
I'm assuming that women are more likely to be celibate than men for these reasons: We associate sex with intimacy/emotional attachment/commitment. (Men don't usually.)
Black women, for the most part, attach significant connection to their faith and their ability to overcome (strong black woman) which is underscored by Christian teachings and obedience to God... (a.k.a. Chrisitian guilt)
Continuing with that thought, we as women tend to be more willing to be spiritually led and obedient than men, if life pressures such as: unequally yoked relationships, low self-esteem, lack of healthy spiritual guidance, etc., are not present.
All that said can a man, in this day and age, be celibate (that is, no sex until marriage)? I personally haven't seen that happen, but I haven't given up hope on it either."
