Lesson for “Sex Doesn't Make You a Man”

Despite peer pressure and his own random urges, Damon Washington has remained a virgin.

Discussion questions:

• Where in the story does Damon explain why he has foregone sex? Are these good reasons?

• Damon says that having sex will not help him accomplish his goals in life. Will having sex keep him from realizing his goals? Have you or your friends not had sex for the same reason? Can you think of examples when sex kept people from realizing goals?

• Do you think he is making too big a deal about sex or that he might have an over romanticized idea about sex?
