Ok...This will probably get ugly, but oh well.

I really don't see the big deal with teens having sex. As long as they are not pressured into anything and are using protection I don't have a problem with it.

I am not being theoretical here...My dd is sexually active and I am fine with that. She knows how to be safe, how to say "no", and how to deal with any problems that might arise. She knows that she can talk to me about anything and that they do not have to sneak around and pretend that nothing is happening. She knows that I do NOT want to "know about it" (i.e. see or hear anything). She is 17 and is in a long term relationship with a guy that we really like.

I was having sex much younger than that (and less protected...she was born when I was 16) and got no guidance and was always sneaking around.

I'm buying a chastity belt. She can take it off when she turns 21.

I think sex is an emotional issue that I know most teens are not prepared for. The brain is not developed fully and because of that I would not want my 17 yr old having sex.
However, my daughter will know about BC and safe sex. I will also teach her to be particular about who she sleeps with. I dont want her sleeping with every guy she is with. Ideally I want her to wait until she is college age- I guess around 19 or 20

I'd rather my child be honest with Me than feel like they have to sneak around behind my back. I would rather my dd come to me and ask for a BC script instead of end up pregnant. I would also supply my ds with condoms. I'd rather them be responsible.

 Don't get me wrong...I am not thrilled that she is sexually active, but I am not upset about it either...she felt that she was ready and made a choice that she does not regret, so I accept her choice.

I do not think that teenagers need to be having sex. I think it opens them up for emotional and physical issues that they are not yet ready for.

They need to focus on their studies, not dicks and pussies.

I think they should wait till 18, I managed to! Make sure you're a legal adult and can handle the potential consequences (a baby) before you do it. Getting knocked up at 18 would have sucked, yes, but not as much as it would have at 14 or 15!
