Im 19, and my boyfriend believes we should become active in sexual intercourse. I still live with my mom because i havent found a short term job and she is very against sex. I dont want to dis-respect her, but if i could get some answers to this, i might be able to settle her worries. So i was wondering, What is an appropriate age to engage in sex? By law, im legally allowed to. But what do you guys think?
Honestly I lost my "V-card" at 18 and yes I am sexually active now but I am also at a point in my life where I can support a child if there was an unplanned pregnancy. As far as an age there really isn't one. It's when 2 consenting adults can make the adult decision to engage in sexual intercourse with the acceptance that no birth control method is 100% effective and can deal with the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy and support the child that results from the before mentioned intercourse. You have to realize that the atomically entire purpose of intercourse is to reproduce and other than sterilization there is no real way to guarantee that there will not be a pregnancy. I am not telling you you should or shouldn't have sex just saying that if you do you should take appropriate precautions and be prepared for unplanned news.
Well, everyone is going to give you a different answer. I think you are ready when you are responsible.
I lost my virginity at fourteen, I guess that's a bit young. But I was responsible about it.
i think it depends on the person, i lost mine when i was 15 but make sure it is with the right person and make sure you dont regret it
It depends on when you are truly ready. There are people that lost it 14/15 but personally I'd say wait until you are 17/18
It depends on when you're ready. I think people should wait until they are at least 18 but that is just my opinion (:
If you have to ask other people if it's ok to have sex, then you're not old enough.
