@mwedwards Come back to reality. People are going to have sex with each other whether you like it or not. My x and i used to do it like they did it on discovery channel. But seriously, we had sex at least 3 times a day for up to about 5-6 months without condoms (she had a rod.) Not once did i catch an STI. We need to teach teens to wear condoms if their going to sleep with different people often (if we're just focusing on preventing STI's)
"proper age'“ is tough. I voted 16, that's when I did, but the thing is, I was ready, my girlfriend was ready, we were mature about it, and it all worked out well. That is not the case every time, and the cases where that age is 'too you g' might be more than 'the right time'.
You cant fully understand the consequences of it until you are old enough to have something to lose. Under your parents roof, under the shield of being a minor, is not the right place to be making those decisions. They are lasting enough that you should be a full fledged adult making them and not still be considered a child.
I'm not going to vote because my opinions are different. Morally, I said waiting until marriage is the best thing to do, or at least dating, but only after 18 years. Legally, people should be allowed to have sex whenever as long as both (or all three, threesomes happen) parties consent. But for me, I don't wanna get herpes. Because, you know, it's a tarp.
