The best things in life are free, right? Well, self-control costs nothing. Being remotely controlled by external circumstances costs a lot. Young people are constantly told that they can control their appetite for food (hence all the anti-obesity efforts) but not their sexual appetite. The majority of teens are not sexually active. They enjoy the benefits of self-control which is STD-free, Abortion-free, Carcinogen-free, Cancer-free, and Government-free.
