I'm sorry, but waiting till 23 or 24 is ridiculous. I'm not saying it's wrong to want to wait that long, fair enough if you want to, but if someone is mature enough, it doesn't matter what age, be it 17 or 30. And before I get the shit about how no 17 year old is mature enough, of course some of them are, everyone's different. Apologies for the rant.
48, dear, your rant makes perfect sense. Age is merely a number, and I do think that sexual activity should be based on maturity levels. Ironically enough, I lost my virginity when I was 17, and in hindsight, I don't think I was mature enough. There's so many things that can change before high school is over. I'm not saying everyone should wait until they're finished with high school, but I feel I should have. It would have saved me the nasty break up I went through over my going away to college, which ended up not happening for other reasons. I guess what I'm really trying to say is, it's different for everyone because everyone matures faster, but for people who don't want to have a long list of boyfriends they've slept with, it's probably best to wait until after high school.
80 it's people like you that spread disease. I was 18 when I lost my virginity and if I had done it any sooner I doubt I'd have been able to handle it when I broke up with the guy I lost it to. Also to whoever said something about puberty, just because you can do it doesn't mean you should. The female body usually isn't fully sexually developed until 17, which is why pregnancy under that age is dangerous.
80- You sounded like a total slut. No offense. Just sayin'. I think most people at least should wait until after high school, with all the breakup over college/leaving for college/the start of actual LIFE. It just depends. I have two really close friends that got married the summer after high school, they were super mature. Most people aren't like that though.
48 and 55 -I agree, as long as your mature enough its okay. Unless it is with random guys, I think its only okay if you are in love with the person. I started dating my bf when I was 15, we finally did that when we were 16, and now he's 19 and I will be 19 soon and we are still together. I don't regret anything that I've done in high school, it just depends on the person.
83/85: That's ridiculous. A woman can enjoy having sex and not be a slut. She didn't say she screws every guy she meets; she could have very strict personal rules about only sleeping with committed boyfriends. You have no idea how many partners she has had. Enjoying sex in no way means she has unprotected sex, either. I know I research things I'm interested in, particularly if they can be dangerous.
55~ I also lost my virginity at 17. I was completely ready for it and I am still dating the same guy years later. Everyone is different. As long as you feel ready and you are SUPER CRAZY SAFE, whatevs. Also, the average age to lose your virginity is 15, so the OP is doing pretty good, all things considered.
I agree that people can be mature enough, but be prepared for the consequences, I was in hs when I lost mine, but I also took resposibility when I got pregnant at 17, I have only been with one guy and we have been together 5 years and now have 2 beautiful kids, some people can handle it, some people can't, it's a personal decision as to whether or not you are ready.
61, puberty happens before you're 20 because of all the hormones in milk and meat that we're encouraged to consume. That's why little girls bleed from their vagina at 9 instead of 16 or 17 when they would start before we began pumping hormones into our cattle. Are you saying 9-year-olds should be having sex just because they can?
Totally not something to joke about... My dad almost died of a heart attack yesterday. The main artery on his heart was 90% blocked by a clot caused by stress. Sorry if I come across as bitchy, but I almost lost my daddy and haven't been able to sleep. This comment hits way too close to home right now.
Yes, you are right. Whenever someone dies or almost dies, the thing that killed or almost killed him/her is instantly never funny again. That means NO jokes about explosions, suffocation, knives, animals, diseases, old age, or ANYTHING because EVERYTHING CAN KILL YOU. Are you kidding me? Heart attacks are fucking hilarious! Watch one sometime! I love to point and laugh while they desperately grope at their own chest and flop around!
84, I really can't do too much. The hospital he's in won't let anyone who isn't 18 or older into the ICU/CVU to visit because they don't want to stress out any heart patients. I have 3 younger siblings and need to help out with them. Excuse me for wanting to keep that off my mind while I'm at home, as my dad is in a hospital about an hour away, since his heart attack happened while he was at work, which is a good hour away. Trollz, I realize how idiotic it sounds, but I am still very upset about what happened. I can't do anything about it, and normally I hate when people do stuff like I did. However, I believe I apologized, and I was really speaking out of hurt.
79, I'm all for people having a sense of humor. Rape, death, dead babies, killed pets, it's all hilarious. But not the day after one happens, or nearly happens, to you. Let the girl be traumatized. Dead baby jokes aren't funny the day after you miscarry. Maybe a few years after, but not the next day.
Lololololololololololololololol Ok truthfully, I KNOW YOUR DAD JUST HAD A HEART ATTACK, but jesus christ take a joke???? it's not like I'm saying YOU, THE PERSON WHOS DAD JUST HAD A HEART ATTACK, THIS IS FOR YOU!!!! EAT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No. This is a joke, learn to take them, instead you're getting your pantaloons in a wad about it Btw I'm sorry for your dad ^^^ Mushy gushy good note ending (no joke though)
44~ That is not how logic works. Even by your logic, NOT ALL WOMEN ARE SLUTS. What you are saying: All squares are rectangles. All rectangles are shapes. Therefore, all shapes are squares. Oh wait that doesn't work, does it? Take your misogyny and your idiocy somewhere else, thank you.
