Do you think it's okay for two (unmarried) people to have sex, even if they have known each other for only a short time?

"In the UCLA survey [of college freshmen, nationally], a record low of 39.6% of students (down from 51.9% in 1987) agreed that 'it is all right for two people to have sex, even if they have known each other for only a very short time.' "

Where do you stand?

  • If two OTHER people want to have premaritial sex I think that's okay. I couldn't care less what others do with their own bodies.

  • I don't see a problem with it, as long as they are both of or over the legal age of consent and they are doing things safely, I don't see the big deal. But I'm usually the most liberal person I know...

  • Its not something I would choose for myself. I think too many people take sex lightly. It should be something done between people who truly care each other, but thats how I feel. I cant make other peoples choices for them.

  • same here i don't see it as a problem, so long as they are both taken precautions. and they recorded college freshman at a university what did they think they were going to say.

  • i dont see a problem with it as long as they use tons of protection and understand that if a condom breaks they can get diseases as well as become pregnant. people should talk about sex before they have it, get tested, take about where they stand on pregnancy before they "do it"

  • Lucky, I would think many many more of them would think it was okay... I mean 39% of them is a rather low number, I think...

  • What 2 CONSENTING ADULTS do is their business and not mine. Premarital sex is ok with me. If it wasn't I wouldn't have my amazing son.

  • I have never be an advocate of recreational sex, in my opinion sex is meant to be between two committed individuals. I know I am in the minority in that opinion so I guess I am a little surprised the number is only 39%
