No promiscuous sex does NOT mean NO sex, it means no uncommitted sex. Why do people not understand this?

Haha finally someone who knows that sex is even remotely related to straight edge! Most of the edge kids in my town either have no idea that promiscuous sex is part of edge or the say they only clame 3 out of the 5 x's (whatever that means). These fucking hypocrite kids will beat the shit out of you if they even think you broke edge, but there trying to fuck any girl who gives them the time of day. Kids these days have no idea about what straight edge is or means, no respect.

Along with abstaining from drinking and drugs, not having promiscuous sex is part of being straight edge. Although it is often overlooked or just plain ignored it has been part of the straight edge credo since the beginning.

Yes, I do know these article contain a glossed over understanding of straight edge from people who aren't necessarily in the scene. The reason I included them is to highlight the fact that sex has been included in straight edge from the very beginning.

it really isn't though. it was in that song, but it hasn't really been reflected in the scene. There aren't that many songs, and isn't really reflected in how people live. People get fixated on out of step, but it's only a song, and not really anything other than Ian Mackaye's thoughts on a single day. I mean look at the articles. None of them really even talk about sex. Lots of talks about drugs and alcohol, but nothing other than headlines about sex.
