a form of sex education that is with holding facts about sex. then tell you if you follow it you are "smart". smart people have a mind of their own and will do research and realize ABSTINENCE IS A GOVERNMENT POLICY ON SEX EDUCATION THAT HAS FAILED. dont believe me? do some research. think of this, how many pregenate porn stars do you see???
jeff- can you believe john is abstinence??

fred- not that supraising, he also believed other things without any research. like his whole, Obama is a musslim thing.

Fred- it is. people not being told all the facts and believing it cuz "if you did, then your smart"

Jeff- haha. Absizs

Fred- LAWL

Not really something that a person chooses -- its just the best option available while you're waiting to become a sexually-viable human being.
Abstinence is dictated by circumstance, not choice. We all want to get laid, daily, when it comes down to it.

The other definitions here are actually wrong.Abstinence I the act of not doing, I.e abstaining from any choice that could be perceived as immoral. This can and often does refer to sex but can also refer to alcohol, drugs, or other things.
Matt wants to focus on his classes and will choose abstinence at the party.
