However, as soon as he begins to enjoy the arousal or desire it, then it is time to stop whatever action is causing the arousal, even if it is a morally good or neutral action. Since people are different, different things can be for them near occasions of sin.
By near occasion of sin we mean anything that “sets the stage” TO sin.
The second kind of action is anything that is in and of itself morally good or neutral, which does not have as its sole purpose the stimulation of the sexual passions.
This is the first sexual behavior discussed so far that carries the risk of pregnancy or infection of a serious STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease), though this is not common. We've already talked about the risks of deep kissing, and there are no consequences to touching above the waist, or touching below the waist on the outside of clothing (some might argue that the risk to light petting is that it leads to heavy petting and that teens just cannot control themselves and will end up having intercourse - we disagree that teens have no control and believe that better and earlier, constant sex education will help teens remain in control of their hormones).
The greater risk is with 'heavy petting', petting below the waist and inside the pants and underwear, and then only if the same hand touches both person's genitals (meaning that when touching yourself and then your partner, you can transfer body fluids, including sperm, to your partner's genitals).
Negative Consequences: Getting caught is often time of a negative consequence most teens experience at some time or another during adolescence - sometimes they get in trouble, sometimes its just embarrassing.
On a more serious note, it only makes sense that since petting is progressively more sexual, that it carries greater risks and consequences.
