I go to church and that helped me a lot. I haven't been going to church very long--about a year--but it totally changed my perspective on things. It changed my outlook on sex, too.

Sometimes (the media can help), like in some of these shows lately and in the movies, about how women, single mothers are working and everything, and they've been coming out with a lot of new programs that show teen responsibility. If people are going to have sex, I think they should already have respect for each other. I don't know if you can build respect (later) off a sexual relationship.
