First of all, the message that is being exhibited is that abstinence should beexercised, no sex is the safest sex and that excuses will not protect you from reality. Itpresents all the defenses employed such as, dysfunctional family, no will power, beenincarcerated, peer pressure, its only their job, they needed the money, they were goingto get married eventually, its their body its their choice and even that whateverhappens, happens. Speak To The Hand lets you know that excuses are not O.K., andsays that If you know who you are and what you are supposed to do then you wouldntcontinue to do what you do. It urges listeners to seek and find, to not let their eyes goblind and to not let the wrong things influence their minds. Examples of this would besexually stimulating movies, ads, friends, television programs, magazines, music ordressing provocatively.
Many bad aftereffects can be produced by chance intimate relationships. Amongthese are unwanted pregnancy, spread of disease, virus or infection or mental damages.
