American Idol and a new view on sex

In school today we were discussing the negative stereotype perpetuated by the media of those who practice chastity. One of the seventh graders innocently said, "There are some good influences out there, like this one song on American Idol." So we agreed to search for the song on YouTube.

Well, it certainly isn't the typical media perception of sex, but it's definitely confirming the stereotype that those who practice chastity are a little odd, out of touch with reality and simply not popular. You can watch it here.

Hopefully someday we will see chastity portrayed by the media as a positive virtue, instead of the choice of a few confused individuals. Please name me a media source that confirms the idea that chastity is a decision worthy of respect.
