Hi,
We have been in youth ministry for a long time and done a lot of speaking on abstinance. You could do multiplying rabbits and say this is what happens... just kidding don't ever do that! We have never done a magic routine for this, but your question sparked a great brainstorm. Here's the ideas we came up with. Effects used: cut and restored rope, blended silks, cut and restored heart (made of construction paper or something).
First say that marriage is more than just tying the knot. As you begin you cut a rope. Then when you say "tying the knot” tie the cut ends together and show the rope. Then say that in marriage the two people actually become one (Matt 19:5, etc.) and show the rope restored. Then talk about how sex is the physical act that actually seals and commits the two people in the vows they made at the wedding ceremony. Ask the crowd what those vows are if possible and go over the fact that God joins these two people physically, spiritually, mentally, and psychologically. Then get out your silks. If your final silk has two colors describe one silk as the man and the other as the woman. If your final silk has three colors the three silks are man, woman, and God (God is part of the union). If your final silk has four colors the four silks are a physical bond, spiritual bond, emotional bond, and psychological bond. Anyways, blend the silks and then say that they cannot be taken apart. Of course, you could try, but it would rip the silk and ruin it. Then explain that because sex was made to join two people like this, it causes destruction, heartache, and pain to use it in a way that it was not intended for--that is outside of marriage. Also you can say that every time a man and his wife have sex they are re-committing their marriage vows to each other. If there are no vows there to re-commit and God has not joined the two people they are lying to each other with their bodies (body language) by giving that part of themselves to the other. Then you could get some volunteers up (if you haven't already). Get one guy and four girls (or one girl and four guys). Give the one guy a construction paper heart. Say now let's say Bobby here has a relationship with Juanita. Instruct Bobby to rip off a piece of the heart and give it to her. Then they break up (sad, boohoo, etc.). But Bobby gets over it and has a relationship with Kerry. Instruct Bobby to rip off another piece of the heart and give it to her. Then Bobby gets over it (it's not quite as big of a deal this time). Then Bobby has a relationship with Jane. And they break up, but Bobby recovers. Have Bobby rip off and give away another piece of the heart. Then be sure the audience sees it (it should look pretty shabby by now). Then, a little while later, Bobby meets... Rebecca. And Bobby likes Rebecca... a lot! Eventually, Bobby falls in love with Rebecca, and asks her to marry him. And on their wedding night, Bobby gives her the gift of his whole self... (have him hand her the heart)... slightly used. You see, every time we have sex we are giving our whole self to that person. And when that is not within marriage, it results in hurting yourself, your relationship with God, and your relationship with your future spouse. Now which would you rather give to the love of your life--the one you love more than anything and want to spend the rest of your life with? This? (hold up torn heart) Or this? (fold up heart and unfold new heart completely restored). Be sure to tag a message on the end that if you feel it is too late because you have already messed up, just remember that nothing is impossible with God. He can heal and restore you--He can give you a new heart. It’s easier not to have to go through it all in the first place, and healing is not easy, but God loves you as his precious child and will rejoice to make you whole again (well, something like that).
Anyways, that's what we came up with--hope it helps and God bless you in you ministry!

That's pretty good. I have never thought of doing a routine on abstinance.
