Dealing with the peer pressure to lose one’s virginity

The influence that society and peers have on us at a young age can be terrifying. So it’s important to surround yourself with people who support you, even if you have different ideas and perspectives. Remember, no one can truly tell you how to value something or when to do something. Only your belief can direct you to do something that you think and feel is right.

So, go ahead and watch this video to save yourself from not falling into the peer pressure of losing your virginity.

So, if you have the desire and dedication to focus on your values and goals, then you will not easily fall into societal pressure, especially during middle school and high school, when one often wishes to fit in and not be labelled as ‘different’.
