Whats the deal with Sex too early?
Television and peer pressure and a lack of education and parenting on the issue. I won't discuss abortion as a birth control method here.
I know everyone says to wait, and the longer you wait the better you'll be in the long run. What do y'all think? And based on your experiences, what do you think?
There is a difference between satisfying, non-regretted sex and sex in general and sex as children. A wise or not so wise man once taught me that women give sex for love and men give love for sex. He didn't say anything about children. I think there is a real lack of responsibility in parenting in consideration of 'unwanted' births and 'unwanted' veneral diseases that are spreading like wild fire. There are commerials for herpes running along side commercials for aspirin (everyone experiences headaches).
My answer: With there being a 1 in 4 rate of veneral disease here in CA and psychiatric occupations on the rise...parents should rationalize what their children are watching and why phedophilia is so prevalent. Children are having sex at very young ages...and this is nothing new.
What is sad is it is not just a matter of hormones or the child's desire usually. They deem it 'cool' as do a great many adults, verses something enjoyable, but with 'real' concequences. They feel it's a way to be popular or liked or a way to manhood if a boy.
I say lock all children up until they are at least 18 and even then you have people running around with no real direction...okay a suitable age is 25 and married, so that taxpayers don't have to support the offspring of thier 'fun' two minutes (oh wait I forgot about the popularity of viagra--okay thier 'fun' 5 minutes then).
