While the young horn dogs of IFB churches, along with their wandering-eyed fathers, hear purity sermons from time to time, most of such sermons are directed at what IFB churches believe is the weaker sex. It is up to them to protect not only their own holy virginity, but that of the boys and men.
This is why there are so many rules about how women dress.
By spreading her legs before marriage and “allowing” Deacon Noah’s son to plant his seed, she has repudiated everything her church, parents, and pastor believe about the sanctity of sex.

Intact hymens are the holy grail of the IFB church movement.
While an infinitesimally small number of unmarried students kept the six-inch rule, the rest of us broke the rule with gusto.This way, the threat of embarrassment and scandal for IFB churches, pastors, and parents is eliminated. Why not take preventive measures, especially since any honest IFB preacher knows that more unmarrieds than not will eventually do the dirty deed.When I was asked this very question years ago, I told the questioner that allowing girls to use birth control was akin to saying to them that it was okay to have sex.Whether the girl is fourteen or twenty-three, it matters not.Becoming pregnant without the benefit of marriage is a deep black stain, not only on the mother-to-be, but also the church, the girl’s parents, and her pastor.
