Well , I don't know if it is too early for a 17-year old boy to talk about this problem . But I know that some teenagers do that when they are younger than me . If the moderator thinks that this topic is unsuitable , you can delete it straight forward . This topic may be the difference between the culture of each continent and may cause plenty of argument. I think asian are very shy in this problem . but european are not . But what will happen if we are too young . Our anatomies are not ready for that . And young people often have impulsive thought that they don't really understand . I think we should wait till marriage . And that will be the challenge for people who are too hurried.

Hi Blueclown,
I'll be brief. For me, No sex before marriage would be a good practice. But as you said, people may think differently. Whatever your religion, stick to what it says. Everything in time.
Yes, indeed, "people may think differently". In my opinion there is no problem to have sex before marriage. As you may have guessed, I'm not married yet but I have already had sex nevertheless. I think it rather depends on how responsible and adult you are, e.g. if you use condoms (what is the technical term in this case? Could you say "prevent"?). Personally I don't think much of teens who have a child and can therefore neither get a good education/job nor properly care for their baby.

Of course it's a different matter when you are devout and your religion forbids having sex before marriage...

In our country , we think that sex is just a part of love .And sex just stems from love . If we don't have love when having sex , we are just like animals . So sex is the challenge for people who are too hurried . And they should proof their love before doing that . Besides , teenagers are not old enough to have a ripe love and they are not old enough to be ready for that important thing . Accidentally , if the girl is pregnant , some irresponsible boys will run away . And the girl who is not ready to give birth { because of her young anatomy} may die or can't be pregnant again when destroying the baby inside . That's will be very dangerous .
In Germany we also think that sex is a part of love and I totally agree with you that people should not have sex if they do not love each other. But you cannot generally say that teenagers are "not old enough", because it is not about age really, is it? It absolutely depends on every individual person. Things like that must not be over-simplified...

Very Impressive, for a 17 years old boy I must say. It's a point of view many people will argue on, though. You've listed some of the upshots that having sex too early may bring about, and there are people that will go along with you. I really think if you can think the way you just express what I assume is your views on the matter, then, not only you can handle the situation, but also have the answer to your question.

Sex is better with someone you love? Sure, but everything nice is better with somone you love. You do not of course need to be married to someone to love them.
Yea, where I am from, sex is also considered a part of love. Or a way of expressing love.

I don't have anything against sex without love. If you do it safe, you don't hurt anybody with it and both participants are aware that it is just casual sex and nothing else, then why not?

It's not something I would do, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

No sex before marriage is something you can choose for, but I think it is awfully old fashioned.

Besides, I don't want to marry some guy and then find out on our honeymoon that my dear husband is absolutely rubbish in bed.
Well, I am not married and I love sex. I think it's ok to have sex before marriage. The willing for sex is an animal instinct. Some people fight this instinct and that's ok if they think it's right. I think you ought to be responsable enough to know what you're doing and what can happen later. Wear condoms. [Y]
