Sexy Abstinence Shirts — Love It or Leave It?

Abstinence-only advocates have finally come to the realization that sex sells, so they've decided to make their message more sexy. The Candie's Foundation, a group on a mission to educate America's youth about the devastating consequences of teenage pregnancy, teamed up with Seventeen magazine to come up with a new slogan for t-shirts that promote abstinence. The winning slogan — "I'm sexy enough to keep you waiting" — has been printed on a tight-fitting tank top and put on sale for $15. Part of me feels like this shirt is counterproductive because it very publicly sexualizes the girl wearing it, but then again it might make teens more comfortable with the idea of holding off on sex.
