I. Introduction
One phenomenon, more than any has seemed to concern a great deal of people, especially on the part of those who are affected by it. It has caused unwanted pregnancies, the spreading of diseases, a lot of guilt, and not to mention, the decrease of teenage virginity. This is if you have guessed it, Premarital Sex. From the word itself you will know that it simply means sex before marriage. Quite a lot are into this and those who engage in this often do so because they want to be accepted by their peers, they hope for pleasure and they want the fulfillment of their sexual desires. They obviously don’t know what they’re getting into. But then again, maybe they do and they just don’t want to face the responsibilities that they need to handle. These things are causing our youth to get more and more involve in sexual behaviors such as homosexual sex, sex with multiple partners, live-in arrangements, causing sex with casual and not casual partners, sex with new acquaintances and premarital pregnancy. We need to find a way to cop to this problem. Individuals need to be more aware of the consequences that await them if they do the unthinkable; engaging in premarital sex. To make the public well informed, and especially those who are at risk, about premarital sexual behavior and to help prevent it is the main purpose of this research.

If such event continues to happen, it will surely lead to an unchaste and un-conservative world as well as a hopeless youth. The more the reason to act now and get informed about the dangers of premarital sex, however many choose to ignore this warning signal and claim it as a hindrance to pleasure. My paper will only be talking about the causes and effects of premarital sex along with same prevention methods. My study is based around the world so that one can fully see and generalize the causes and effects of premarital sex and what it can do to mankind and the society, although when I describe some of the prevention methods, it is situated here in the Philippines. As for my resources, many of the data I gathered were from the internet, local magazines and newspaper and various books from the Silliman and Holy Cross High School library.
