    1. 1. Premarital Sex A Report for the Adolescent Sexuality Class 2011
    2. 2. Definiton • Premarital Sex is sexual relationships engaged before marriage. • For the purpose of this report we will focus more on sexual relationships between man and woman particularly within the period of adolescence especially in the Philippines.
    3. 3. Philippine Reports on Sexuality • 1994 Survey on the views on sexuality by 11,000 Filipino youth whose ages ranged from 15 to 24 years old. • 2002 Study regarding the values placed by Filipino youth on human sexuality, related topics, and their relationship to the rising incidences of sexually transmitted diseases. This surveys participants included 292 randomly chosen individuals from nine colleges of a university.
    4. 4. Philippine Reports on Sexuality • Study published in 2007 regarding the occurrences of premarital sex among Filipino high school adolescents. Study group had 20,000 students 15-24 years old. • 2009 Survey regarding their opinions on relationships, love, sexuality, and related items. This study that targeted 3276 third year high school to third year college participants aged 13 to 18 years old.
    5. 5. Derivative Studies • 2002 Young Adult and Fertility and Sexuality Study (YAFS 3) • State of the Philippine Population Report, 2nd Issue (SPPR02) found at
    6. 6. Characteristics in the Data
    7. 7. There is a slide in PMS tolerance • From 18% of Philippine youth okay with PMS in 1994 to 37.2% approval of a man having PMS (23.7% are okay with women having PMS)
    8. 8. First Time • First sexual encounter is commonly unplanned (55%) say that it was something they did not plan to happen at that time, but they went along with it anyway. • Forty percent of first PMS and 70 percent of most recent PMS were without any means of protection. • Nearly three out of 10 first sex experiences were not planned or totally against the will of the youth. Younger females (5%), males (1.3%). • Likely victims of rape are those with disadvantageous background or being out-of-school, of low education, no schooling at all, not currently working or in live-in situation.
    9. 9. First Sexual Experience
    10. 10. PMS demographics
    11. 11. US findings • A massive shift in the youth landscape in that many young people no longer treat sex as a moral issue. • Oral sex has become a symbol among kids as young as eleven years old. It is no longer associated with romantic relationships but rather is a thing girls do to boys so that each obtains social status. [Michael Osit, Generation TEXT] • “Sex is a game and a toy, nothing more.” Says a student. [Chap Clark, Hurt]
    12. 12. Scenario
    13. 13. How About in the Church? • No studied data available but anecdotally the situation seems to be that expectations of elders regarding the sexual lives of young people may no longer be realistic.
    14. 14. Conclusions • Clark found there to be more of a feeling of abandonment rather than a sexually charged atmosphere in the high school he went to. • He got the impression that for many of the teens, sex was just something to do to escape loneliness.
    15. 15. Physical Reasons • Puberty and Adolescence • Early Dating: Early Sex • Alcohol and Drugs • Birth Control: The “Myth” of Safe Sex • Our Culture’s Motto: “If It Feels Good Do It” • Fallout of Prior Sexual Abuse
    16. 16. Environmental Reasons • In a World Where Wrong is Right • The Global Village
    17. 17. Sex and the Internet
    18. 18. Media’s Role • Television • Music and Lyrics • Pornography
    19. 19. Other Reasons • Emotional • Relational
    20. 20. PMS and Institutions
    21. 21. The Age of Consent
    22. 22. Laws • Under Philippine laws, PMS is illegal. • As far as our research has uncovered there has only been one incident where this has affected individuals. • In 2009, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), revoked Hayden Kho's medical license for unethical conduct and immorality.
    23. 23. RH Bill • Under the bill, age-appropriate reproductive health and sexuality education is required from grade five to fourth year high school using “life-skills and other approaches.” • There is mandatory sexuality education starting grade 5, and "malicious disinformation" is penalized.
    24. 24. Catholic Church • Consider last year: CBCP sued the government’s sex education plan and also had public reactions to the condom giving act by a DOH head.
    25. 25. Evangelical Church • Among evangelicals use of education to teens particularly through sermons during special occasions such as Valentine’s Day, debuts • Campaigns: True Love Waits • Books: I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris, Lovestruck by Ronald Molmisa
    26. 26. Family • Culturally sex is a taboo subject. The sensitive parts of the body are not to be mentioned, and in fact there are no specific words assigned to some of them, as well as some sexual behaviors, so that it is not possible to translate the English word equivalent. When talking about sex, Filipinos use euphemisms instead. This makes sexual education by parents almost unnatural.
    27. 27. PMS and the Bible
    28. 28. Hebrews 13:4 • Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
    29. 29. 1 Cor. 6:18 • Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.”
    30. 30. Galatians 5:19 • "The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity…”
    31. 31. John McArthur on Sex in the Scripture: The message of Scripture regarding sex is simple and consistent throughout: total physical intimacy within marriage is pure and ought to be enjoyed (Hebrews 13:4); but remove the marriage covenant from the equation and all sexual activity (including that which occurs only in the imagination) is nothing but fornication, a serious sin that is especially defiling and shameful —so much so that merely talking about it inappropriately is a disgrace (Ephesians 5:12).
    32. 32. Consequences
    33. 33. • Media does not really portray the consequences of PMS well.
    34. 34. Most film and tv media do not portray the consequences of PMS well
    35. 35. Emotional Toll
    36. 36. Unwanted Pregnancies Reasons teen pregnancies should be avoided. • Risk for malnutrition • Risk for inadequate prenatal care • Risk for abortion • Risk for fetal deaths • Risk for cervical cancers
    37. 37. Death
    38. 38. Our Role
    39. 39. Rebecca Singson, M.D. • Keep them at home with an intact family • Keep them in school • Keep communications open • Keep them spiritually grounded
    40. 40. Recommendations • Strengthen parents’ roles perhaps through traditions. “And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
    41. 41. Recommendations • Coordinate and work with those in positions to do something regarding PMS data: principals, law-enforcement people & media • Build a movement by educating your youth and local church, running a campaign or developing and launching more material on this matter.
