Yeah, i'd reckon it's a mix of several factors. First and foremost, there is a lot of very young people here. So they might not be into sex at all just yet.

Second, some "nerds" (and i consider myself part of the nerd herd, so don't get your panties in a bunch by me using this term.) Some nerds are a little shy, or slightly more introverted than other people their age. Which would be reflected in their openness towards physical intimacy.

Third, religion and/or culture. We have people from all over the world. And in some places silly moral restrictions are enforced and beat into peoples heads from childhood.
I respect a persons choice to not have sex because they are not ready. I however i think it is silly if people don't have sex for religious reasons. That kind of stuff leads to a ridiculous amount of dry humping, handjobs, fingering and even "loophole" anal sex anyway.
Why? Because sex is in our nature. And whether or not someone is a virgin on their weddingnight is irrelevant.
Have sex if you want to. Just protect yourself.
And if you don't feel ready, then don't have sex. Don't stay clear of sex because an ancient book scribbled by barely literate men, claiming it to be the word of an imaginary skyperson, wants to dictate how you manage your natural urges.

That is all.


I think I'm in love... hahaha
Fuck anti-sex talk and traditions. For the most part, I think it leads to sexual problems and dysfunctions. It makes people feel shameful and embarassed. It might make people never want to "enjoy" sex because they know somewhere that pleasure is unacceptable, even if it wasn't worded exactly that way. And just along with those sexually liberal messages, there are also anti-sex anti-masturbation pro-virginity messages in the media as well that reinforce those ideals that girls especially are brought up with. Virginity is not something magic, there is no special card you carry that makes you moral or better than anyone else because you're a virgin.
Regardless of my views on sex and virginity, there should be better sex education that is comprehensive, realistic, and age-appropriate. You'd be surprised how many high school kids don't think condoms are that important and that kids their age don't have STDs yet, so birth control is enough, or even worse - pulling out is enough *facepalm*...

Well obviously. Young and immature are almost the same thing.


No, it's not. Well physically-wise, yeah. Physical development doesn't determine how mature somebody's mind works.


I disagree. Someone might be "mature for their age" but not necessarily be that mature compared to someone 10 years older than them. The brain isn't finished developing until somewhere around 30, where the frontal lobe finishes up . (Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, I sucked at the brain chapter in my psychology class, even though I made an A on every test...) The area of the brain that finishes developing last controls your ability to plan ahead, see the bigger picture, make important decisions sensibly, use good judgement, etc... which makes sense if you think about why teenagers act the way they act.
I say this not to put down any 15 year olds on here, but because I can say now, at 20, that I'm definitely not as mature as a mature 40 year old, but am more mature than the average 20 year old.

And to make it relevant, and not just a thread de-rail, people having sex before age 16 (the legal age of consent where I live) is not a good idea in my opinion, because not only are they not finished developing physically body-wise, they aren't nearly finished developing their brain. And while I'm sure there are mature 15 year olds who are/were ready for sex, and had it, and don't regret it... it's hard for me to believe that most sexually active 13 - 15 year olds are mature enough for sex and fully absolutely without-a-doubt understand all of the consequences of sex, how often they occur, and how deeply they can affect your life.

Not my life, I know.

Let people do what they want, it's their business.
It's up to them whether they have sex or not as long as it's legal. (There's a reason for those laws)
If people don't use protection then it just means that they didn't recieve enough information about it.
We had sex-ed classes in 5th grade and I think all teenagers should get the opportunity of a proper education about the risks and benefits of having sex. They should know that there are people like them but most importantly is that there are people who aren't like them and that you shouldn't judge them for being different.

I don't see the problem. If you don't want your sex life exposed, don't post.

The thing is, sex is EVERYWHERE so it's natural for people to want to talk about it. You shouldn't expect things to be so different here - a place in which thread-creators attempt to touch on every topic known to man.

you know...it's not only puritans that feel that way...some people have developed their own views for entirely unique reasons

There shouldn't be anti-sex threads here, even though that is a form of free expression, just like, oh, I don't know... making love? If people are against sex, then they have opted out of the gene pool, and something which might have made them significantly happier.
