Abstinence and abstinence sex isn't just for teenagers. There are a number of reasons why people, including adults, may practice abstinence. Safe sex is probably one of the biggest reason people choose to practice abstinence, as it is the most effective way to protect against sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancy. Other individuals may practice abstinence in the beginning of a relationship until they are emotionally ready to connect with a partner on a sexual level.
