Teen Sex compared with Drug Addiction?

February 11, 2009

Ajith has a post here, which has a screenshot of a local newspaper saying that 72% of teens are sexually active and 18% are addicted to drugs – in the same sentence. Anyone can smell the religious fundamentalist mentality in this sentence from miles away.

I’ve experimented with both sex and drugs when I was schooling. And let me tell you with empirical evidence, they are not the same thing -especially for a teen. Sex, at the right moment with the right person, can uplift your health and bring balance to a overly-pedantic and monotonous life. The experience stays with you for the rest of your life, even if the you and your partner choose to go separate ways.

Drugs on the other hand, makes people weak. The craving for a little more will eat the person from inside until she’s lost all grip of reality. The experience is definitely something you try to forget for the rest of your life.

But wut to do? The government [media] not only magically pulls out stats of someone’s arse, but also presents them in a twisted way so that religous fundamentalists can sleep well at night thinking that their lives actually do have some grand purpose.

    but don’t you know, sex, drugs (and rock and roll) doesn’t complete a man. if you try any of them you’re doomed.

    Yeah, rockn’roll can kill. If the volume is adjusted such that the ear drum resonates to an amplitude larger than its endurance limit, it will explode and cause instant death…

    Its like this all need sex (for reproduction), drugs(medicine) and rock n’ roll(workout).. Just do not over do it.. that’s all

  4. Sure sex and drugs are not the same thing. But they give similar results if handled right.

    I dunno. I’ve pushed my luck with “recreational” use, and I don’t want to go there again. Perhaps it’s just me though.

    The stats are definitely twisted. I started having sex when I was 14. I started smoking weed when I was 13 and still do.
