Let’s have sex…Umm…NO!
“Baby you know I love you so let’s just go on and do
it.” Have you ever heard this line before? I hope not,
but if you have then you know how it feels when
someone pressures you to have sex with them using
the “L” word, you know, “love”?
Well, I was really curious to see what are some of the
pick up lines (or strategies) that guys use to get
girls to sleep with them…you know…have sex. Anyway, I
found out that guys can use the most ridiculous and
goofy lines in the world but unfortunately, sad but
true, some girls do fall for them.
I did a radio piece for a special teen health show
called Youthtopia on KUSP 88.9 FM. I got to interview
many people and got everyone’s perspective on this
issue. I realized that the lines used were not just
used alone. Instead guys used substances at times in
order to get girls in the ‘mood’ for sex. For
instance, they would use alcohol said José, 19. Or
they’d use pathetic pick up lines like, “Your eyes are
like a gateway to a life I want to be a part of and
then BANG!” said Julio, 18. Or guys just straight up
pressure girls to get what they want, said Alejandra,
16. Alejandra said guys say things about wanting to
take the relationship to the next level and making the
girl feel like she’s not showing her love if she
doesn’t have sex.
When guys in this situation get what they want (sex),
girls are the ones that deal with most of the
consequences, said Christian, 16. If people find out
that a girl had sex with a guy, that girl will be
labeled as a slut and the guy would be glorified as
a ‘player’, said one girl I interviewed. “Yeah, it
might sound good for the guy at the moment but when he
really wants to settle down with a girl, most girls
wouldn’t want a guy with a ‘player’ reputation as a
husband,” said Diana, 18, “I know I wouldn’t.” Now if
the girl were to get pregnant, she’s the one who has
to carry that baby for nine months. Are you listening?
NINE MONTHS! “She’s the one who will have to take care
of the baby when it’s born,” Julie, 11, states. “She
would be stuck with this baby for life.” On the other
hand, the guy would just leave the girl and sometimes
that’s as far as that would go. Now girls, do you want
to be in that position? I hope not.
How can you avoid these lines? The best way to avoid
situations like these is to never put yourself in
them, and if you happen to be in one then just
say, “NO” said Melanie, 17. It’s the best answer to
something you don’t want to do.
Now guys, think twice about pressuring a girl to have
sex with you. Because nowadays your freedom can depend
on it, especially if you’re over 18 years old and
she’s a minor. I’ve seen too many of those life
situations and definitely too many young girls with
strollers at my school. Don’t let it happen to you and
if it does, remember, “with no glove, no love.” Be
