Prostatitis, a lower urinary tract infection, occurs by retrograde entry of organisms into the prostatic ducts via urethra from oral, anal, genital intercourse
or masturbating practices, by hematogenous spread from other foci, or lymphatic extension from infected kidneys.
The SIECUS position statement on adolescent sexuality states: "Education about abstinence, alternatives to genital intercourse
, sexual limit-setting, and resisting peer pressure should support adolescents in delaying sexual intercourse until they are ready for mature sexual relationships.
Because sexuality is defined not only by the act of genital intercourse
but also by intimacy, relationship satisfaction, self-esteem, and family life (Russel, 1990), it is likely that most counselors will see clients who have issues relating to sexuality.
