Why I've Chosen To Abstain From Sex

Shahna Says is a journalist and broadcaster who’s friendly personality is beautifully in tune with her openness and clarity of thought. Sassy met Shahna over a podcast recording discussing relationships and the role sex plays in our lives as women. Early on into the conversation, Shahna explained that she had chosen to abstain from sex until marriage; a decision she made in correlation to her faith and wanting to develop a better relationship with both her God and herself. We asked Shahna to share her story with us to better our understanding of the roles Christianity and abstinence play in her sense of self-worth.


I wanted self-worth through men, I wanted love like in the movies and because of what society says, I thought I would get that by being out there.
