Abstinence

Definition - What does Abstinence mean?

Abstinence is a term that refers to the choice to refrain from participating in some, or all, sexual activity.

Kinkly explains Abstinence

Abstinence is generally voluntary, and is influenced mostly by religion and/or social norms. In some countries, abstinence is enforced by law. Some individuals choose to wear a "purity ring" as a symbol of their commitment to abstinence.

Abstinence is also often promoted as a method of birth control.

  • I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was 'the man goes on top and the woman underneath.' For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds.
