5 Ads That Make Me Want to Abstain

Ads-abstain

Abstinence and sex education was a hot-button issue in our recent election.  It was also a funny and ironic topic, considering the events that played out.  The Republican party was making grand speeches about abstinence-only education and the virtues of waiting until marriage (a la The Jonas Brothers) while Bristol Palin was out getting knocked up.  Hah.  Apparently she doesn’t watch Jon & Katie Plus 8 (or do any babysitting), ’cause that pretty much closes up shop downtown for me.

As long as people continue having sex before marriage, there will be people trying to stop them.  The best part about this (well, the only good part, actually) is the advertising.  Here are the Top 5 Funniest Abstinence Ads Ever. If these don’t make you want to change your sexy ways, I’m not sure what will:

I always knew deep down that engineers could never get laid, and now I know it’s true:

WTF engineer

Do you think you get a thank-you note for that? (You know, besides the inability to sit for three days…)

Pretty sure abstinence isn’t a choice for the guy in the middle:

Old school, yet effective. Nothing like a little fear (and a cartoon dictator) to keep people’s legs closed.

Iowa’s abstinence mission tries so hard to be hip and with it. They get us, they really get us!

      Wow these are stupid, I can't believe people think this stuff works. My virginity was not a gift, and nothing says romantic honeymoon like finding out how painful and awkward your first time is.

      Um, I dont think people have to share their views with their parents, but she got up and made this statement herself. She set up the interviews, she spoke to te public. This is her doing so there is nothing wrong with poking fun at her. She brought it on herself.

      "Wait for the bling!"…Hahaha. Does this mean you can have sex as soon as your partner gives you jewelry?

      Ha ha Sam! as soon as I saw this post I thought of that commercial!

      This was a good post except for the fact that you mentioned Bristol Palin. Seriously, I am so sick of hearing about this girl. Do you people not realize that kids do not have to share the same views as their parents? even if their parents are major political figures. I mean how many young liberals out there have conservative parents? I guarantee you a lot of them.

      I am just sick of people using a teenager who did not ask to be “famous” or to have her teenage pregnancy shared with the world, because of her mothers job. And who, like the rest of us, MAKES MISTAKES! to make a mockery of the republican party. She’s a teenager for Christ sake! Leave her alone already!

      Imagine going away for your honeymoon and loosing your virginity in a hotel. Think about the blood on the sheets. I'd hate to do that to the person washing the room. Abstinence is a completely immoral act(or non-act) to sanitation personnel.

      Given that Sarah Palin does not, and never did, support abstinence-only education (despite what was reported, she actually supports "abstinence plus"–emphasizing that abstinence is the best choice, but including information about contraceptives), Bristol's pregnancy is hardly a condemnation of that type of sex-ed.

      That said: Yeah, these are dumb ads. Especially that last one, which probably has led to a lot more engagements than weddings.

      These are so stupid. I want the sex ed to actually matter not just sit there and say if you have sex before marriage you will get an std or that bullshit. I want them to teach to use condoms instead of abstinence. If they taught this I think that there would be less teenage pregnancies and it would be better overall.

      Why not!!! She is a tea party person. She is above the rest of us. Her Mama Bear is agsinat unions, middle class and health care. I wonder who pays for Bristol’s Health care and her baby. Does she get aid from the Federal goverment since she is an unwed mother???? Or whatever we call it when she gets her free health care because Mama Bear or Soccer Mom or whatever she goes by now happens to be in politics. Come on wake up America .quit being so stupid.
