Then there was the 6th grade health teacher who told us that
“sex is the greatest gift you’ll ever give to a partner and so you should cherish your virginity and give it to the right person.”

And then there’s Steve Harvey and his 90-Day Rule. If you haven’t read his book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man Steve’s 90 day rule encourages women to wait 90 days before having sex with a man. The 90 days is compared to the 90 days one must wait to receive benefits at a new job. He argues that just as a new employer requires vetting time before investing in health insurance and fringe benefits for an employee a woman should require some vetting before giving away sexual benefits.
In this article I’m going to share my opinion and then I’d like to hear yours. I want to emphasize first that this is only my opinion, and if you disagree that’s cool, no judgement.
