Staying Focused Dealing with Your Partner Coping with Sexual Urges Community Q&A Sexuality has been more than emphasized in today's society.
TV, radio, Internet, books, magazines and media in general. By staying focused, talking to romantic partners, and finding healthy ways to cope with sexual urges you can successfully practice abstinence.
