Do you desire to abstain from sex but you are worried if you can really abstain? Yes you can abstain from sex and you alone have the right to make that determination.
Below are 5 tips that would help you abstain from sex
1. SET YOUR BOUNDARIES:
Setting your boundary and ensuring no one disrespects your boundary is very important. You have to decide what kind of physical contact crosses your boundary and ensure you establish the terms of your boundaries, both for yourself and for others.
2. BE COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR DECISION:
If you are serious about abstaining from sex, being comfortable with your decision is very important. You should understand you have the right to set the terms for your body because it’s your body. If the other person respects you then they should respect your terms.
3. LET YOUR DATE KNOW YOUR STANCE ON SEX UPFRONT:
Never start a relationship without telling your date you expect the relationship to be without sex. If the person isn’t on the same page with you, it’s better you let them go instead of letting their priorities influence yours. Starting a relationship without telling your date you want it to be a relationship without sex isn’t healthy and could bring pain and turmoil.
4. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY NO:
Learn to stick by your rights and you should know you have the right to say no to anyone. Don’t let anyone bully you into doing something you don’t want to do because it’s your body and not theirs.
5. LEARN TO WALK AWAY IF THE SITUATION ARISES:
If your partner loves you enough, they should be able to respect your decision not to have sex. Learn to walk away if your partner insists it’s either they have sex or no relationship. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t date that person.
