I was a late bloomer I guess. I did have sex before marriage but I was well out of high school first. All but one of the girls I knew fairly well had sex in high school. Several of the ones who did have sex graduated having given birth at least once.
I had boyfriends and they did try to get sex but I wouldn't and that usually ended the relationship. I am the product of a teenage pregnancy and know how hard it is to raise a child with a high school education. I had no interest in sex then between tyring to get good grades so I could go to college and seeing how hard it was for my parents to hold everything together. My parents were also very clear; no sex, drugs or alcohol. So I didn't do those things.
Just wondered if I was alone in this. It seems like any post related to teens and sex has "they are going to do it anyway" somewhere in it.

I also the product of a teen pregnancy. My mothers life scared the doo-doo out of me. I never wanted that for myself or for my children. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with house rules and the strictness of parents. I only lived with my mother until I was 16 and moved in with my grandfather after that. My mother was beyond strict. I wasn't allowed to go anywhere or do anything. It was school, home, then banished to my room. Had I continued living with her, I probably would have had sex sooner, just to rebel against her. My grandfather was very lax with me. I came and went as I pleased, but never thought about having sex. I was busy enjoying life! Perhaps I'm a rare case, but I'm one to get into less trouble if given freedom and lack of structure!

i waited until i was 19. at the time i only really did that because i loved being chased and didn't want to have sex with a guy and have him turn around and hurt me. i didn't want to be used, so i just never gave in. it was more fun in my eyes to not have sex than to. now, i am happy i waited a bit longer but i wished i had waited for my husband.
