For a young man, Korey is full of wisdom that both teens and their parents can glean from, don’t you agree? And once again with this week’s Conversation with Korey, he doesn’t disappoint!
It’s one thing to say you’re going to stop having sex, but it’s something else entirely to actually live out your commitment on a daily basis. But that’s exactly what Korey has done over the past couple of years.
Today Korey and I discuss what it really takes to sex-proof your life so you can live sex-free till marriage.
Free your Mind and the Rest will Follow
It wasn’t until Korey changed his mind about sex, that he was able to change his behavior. What followed was him setting boundaries for himself in several key areas you’re going to want to take note of. Including:
- What he listened to
- What he watched
- Who he hung out with
- How he referred to himself
Go Bold or Go Home!
Peer pressure doesn’t magically disappear once teens become young adults and head off to college, as Korey attests to in today’s clip. Let’s face it, his decision to be celibate as a young man, didn’t exactly earn him cool points among the guys.
Korey describes how it took boldness to stand by his commitment, because he knew his “friends” at the time would laugh at him for being different. Some of them may have even thought he was “weak,” for choosing to give up sex.
But I say, show me a young man who is disciplined enough to master his hormones and natural impulses, and I’ll show you a young man who is anything BUT weak!
Today’s Conversation with Korey is the kind of honest discussion we need to engage our boys in more often. You’d be surprised by how many teen guys share with me that they don’t really want to have sex. But they’ll either go ahead and have sex or lie about having it, just to save face in front of their friends.
If you have a son, please share the clip below with them! Boys need to know that there are guys out there like Korey, who’re not only living sex-free until marriage, but actually enjoying themselves while they do. And your sons can too!
I hope you’ve been enlightened and inspired by this Conversation with Korey series so far. Make sure you watch any of the previous clips that you may have missed. Next week, Korey will address how the issue of fatherlessness impacts teen girls.
