Pledges of virginity

Over the past decade, millions of teens in the United States have made formal pledges to delay sex until they are married. Virginity pledges are part of a wider abstinence movement that has been a controversial approach to sex education. Essentially, the available research suggests that teaching abstinence alone to teenagers does not work — they are no more likely to delay the start of sexual activity than other teenagers. But research has not been so clear regarding virginity pledges specifically. Some studies have found that pledges may help young people delay the start of sexual activity. The latest study on the issue, published in the January issue of the journal Pediatrics, seems to throw cold water on the idea that virginity pledges do much good, finding no difference in sexual activity between pledgers and nonpledgers.

Jimmy Hester, coordinator of True Love Waits, an abstinence group that grew out of the Southern Baptist Convention, hailed the report as ''great news. Hester said the group acted out of moral conviction, rather than any certainty that the promises were effective in steering teenagers away from sex.
