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? 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

We were taught about sex at school when I was 12. That's probably a good age since it is when kids hit puberty. And if they start having urges but don't understand them that's going to be worse. It will make puberty more awkward if they don't even understand what is going on.
And the fact is you can't prevent all teens from having sex so it's best to teach them safe sex in the hopes it will cut down on problems.
It is a fine line though because it teens can avoid having sex, that's for the best in my opinion.
I'm 26 and I still haven't had sex. That is a long time to wait and I would have liked it if I was married earlier. I'm still not married and I personally feel too awkward about doing it before marriage. I've been with my b/f for a few years and I've tried to psych myself into doing it after all this time but I'm so afraid of pregnancy that I just can't even get turned on for the sex. My family has a big no-no against sex before marriage and I'd hate to be the only non-married pregnant person to ever exist in my family.
So I'm holding off but if I turn out to be a 30 year old virgin I probably won't be happy about it. I don't think it's sad for people to still be virgins at that age or anything but I'll just know I spent most of my young life not doing any sex and I wonder if that's a good thing or not.
When people are under 18 though I for sure think that they probably shouldn't be having sex....but we all know some are still going to do it.
