Poor little abstinence. In an era when colorful condoms are handed out like Halloween treats and birth control may as well come in a flashy Pez dispenser, there's little old abstinence, twiddling its thumbs in the corner, hoping to be noticed.

It is a very good and healthy idea, many perfectly sensible people think, not to have sex until one is married, and then to have sex only with the person to whom one is married.

But culturally, abstinence can't catch a break. It's a relic of a simpler time, when common sense and good old-fashioned family values didn't have to compete with Twitter, Bluetooth, and Lady Gaga for attention.

And to add insult to injury, the only time anyone does bring up abstinence, it's to use it as a cheap political punch line, the butt of a joke about some wayward Christian conservative who couldn't keep it in his pants.
