Males are stimulated differently than females. “French kissing” will lead a guy to become sexually aroused but the girl might simply feel more affection towards him. You should avoid anything that could lead you into this arousal zone—drugs, alcohol, french kissing, prolonged kissing, and petting. Knowing how far means understanding that men have a higher “sex” drive and women have a higher “love” drive. It also means knowing that using drugs and alcohol will impact sexual behavior because they will deaden the conscience and heighten the passions. Setting boundaries and “no trespassing zones” are essential to staying pure while dating.
