Okay! My last post was too vague, so here's a more clear one! Why do young people (teenagers) have sex before they are married? What age should sex be allowed at? Should we have sex education in school and what age? Do you think it would make teenagers want to have sex more or less?

EDIT: Night Watcher Alchemist, thank you for being a little more specific with your topic! I changed the title as well as the description so its more to the point. Also changed a few of the poll answers. When you do your titles please make sure that its actually about the topic your making the thread about okay? smile.gif Not titles like "I don't get it" or "what the hell?!" just for example. Again if you're going to post a new thread be sure to send it to me first and I'll give the yes or no! ~Scar

Edit II: Because the conversation has headed in such a direction, I have altered this topics opening post (this one). If this topic is completely different to the discussion you wanted Night Watcher Alchemist, let one of us know, namely me since I made the last edits. Once the topic has been established I will remove all needless edit notes and irrelevant posts - Chi

In my observations, teen sex is wrong on a personal and moral level. In high school for me, it always seemed like a rite of passage to be accepted. I wasn't going to compromise my morals for acceptance, screw that.

My opinion is this: it seems wasted if you have sex, a sacred and truly special intimate act between two people if a boyfriend and girlfriend or a "hookup" do it and then they break up like months later or something like that. Then the cycle repeats. I don't really like that..makes things complicated.

If I want sex I'd want it with someone I'd spend the rest of my life with, marriage or not.

I'm glad you see it this way Disasterpiece, but Chiyo has a point! No teen enters a relationship thinking it won't work. A lot of them think it will, and some don't know, but none do it with those thoughts. I set my morals to be as such, but truly, I don't believe anybody truly knows the dangers of going passed these morals until they've experienced it; this I've seen several times, and yet I still meet people who find out for themselves....

There are so many consequences from teen sex, and I'm not talking about pregnancy. I'm talking about STDs and other things, no matter how careful you are. I've even heard my friend brag about how he screwed 3 girls in a week and wanted to have a three way with his girlfriend and other girl. The girlfriend (ex now) and I have become friends the past few months and she broke up with him for that reason: that he wanted a three way.

I've also seen it firsthand ruin relationships because of cheating. I've seen friends split apart over sex with others and it was nasty. Friends of boyfriends and girlfriends pitted against each other.

I want a serious relationship where sex is not an integral part. I want to avoid all that crap.

Amen to that! Sex doesn't automatically equal love, but some people just can't seem to see past the animal instinct. I, too, find it sad that it's almost a "rite of passage" now. Forget that--I have waited and will continue waiting until I'm in a serious, committed relationship, and I'm almost out of my teens! (Yes, it's possible!) However, I think that Chiyo's point that hardly anybody enters a relationship thinking that it won't work out is crucial. I know that while I had no plans of ending a high school relationship that I was in when it started, when I saw the writing on the wall, even though he never pressured me to do anything, I was glad that we hadn't done anything.

As to issues of cheating and such--I know that this is a place to discuss teen sex, but I'd like to point out that it's not just teens who have issues with cheating, STDs, and pregnancy, though it could be argued either way that those issues are more prevalent among teens. I think peer pressure is definitely more of a factor, but I haven't been pressured as much as I'm sure a lot of kids have, so it's been pretty easy to just give people a sideways look and say no without any second thoughts.

This all very much comes down to questions of morals and maturity, and those questions (at least, the ones concerning morals) generally don't have definitive answers. As I've already posted my opinions on those, I won't repeat them here.
