    Well, in place of sex, you could always blog.

    P.S. If you don’t want people to have sex, LET THEM GET MARRIED.

    It’s why Christians get married so young. All of my friends from college (I went to a Christian college) got married while still students or right after graduation.

    With the exception of one couple that I can think of, all are still married.
