After the FDA released the first birth control pill Enovid in 1960, a sexual revolution swept through American culture that began in the sixties and is still continuing to this day. Women now had control over when they could become pregnant making pre-marital sex less taboo. Throughout the sixties and later decades, American culture began to be more accepting of a sexualized culture. However, many religious and conservative groups opposed the new sexual liberties many were taking and formed a counter-culture of organizations that stressed remaining abstinent until marriage and abhorred promiscuity.
