Question
Is it bad that I am a virgin and i'm 17.

Answer
Hi Ebony,

What's bad and good is decided by God. God says you should stay a virgin until you marry, or are in a life long committed relationship.

So, no, it's not bad at all that you're a virgin at 17. In fact, it's good - VERY good. Stay that way until you're married. Virginity is a gift from God, and once it's given away, it's gone forever. Don't throw it away.

Expertise

I'm good at listening, even better at giving advice.

Virginity does matter! And no sex before marriage is possible, regardless of what your friends, family, or (worst of all) society tell you. It's a choice, like any thing else in life. Not an easy one, so that's why I'm here to help.

I'm happy to answer your questions:
- WHY you should stay a virgin until marriage
- HOW you can stay a virgin until marriage
- HOW to deal with boy or girl friends pushing you to engage in sex
- HOW to deal with friends who push you to engage in sex
- HOW to deal with a family who won't support you in your choice of abstinence

Experience

If you want to know about some thing, you ask an expert, right? If you're climbing a dangerous mountain, whom would you ask for help - another climber that's struggling up hill like you? Or the fella who's been to the top, and lived to tell about it?

I'd be the latter.

As to sex before marriage, "Been there, HAVEN'T done that".
