My 5 1/2 year old wouldn't stop bugging them so they finally locked themselves in the basement. My little guy can be a real pest. No matter what I say, he won't leave them alone. But I wonder what's going on down there? Hmm. WWYD?

No way.  Would not happen in my house.  Would discipline the little one and they hang out in areas that everyone can go into and never locked in somewhere.

 I think it depends on how long they have been dating, how well you like his gf, and if they are sexually active do they practice safe sex?  I do give my 17 yr old her privacy but every kid is different.

I'd go down, knock and demand the door be opened this instant. I would then tell them that the brother has been dealt with and to please come up to the loungeroom. I don't care if they're sexually active. It will NOT happen in my house.

I am 100% on board with what you said.

I would make them come into a common area of the house. No matter what my thoughts are about teens and sex, I would not want that girls angry parents coming to my door, upset with me and my ds, because I allowed it in my house. 

I think it's also a respect issue.

Leave them to it, he's 17 (legal here) shout down to then when food was ready. (Also in my DS case the girl could just be a friend)
(Slightly different as the basement is DS1 domain, it is where he and his friends hang out and I'm never sure who exactly is down there out of his friends)

Its hard when she's not your daughter. Maybe have that meaningful talk to both of them. Let his gf know, you dont want to upset her parents or you. Best ask her parents and sets some boundries and rules.

I thought of this. I have girls and would be furious if boys parents allowed that.

I would also discipline the little one, I would also find a lot of reasons to go down into the basement
