Max age for sex and puberty - July 31st 2009, 08:32 PM

I was going to post this as a suggestion, but I wanted to see what everyone else thought about this and their opinions. The poll is anonymous.

I honestly think there should be a max age for the sex and puberty like around 21. At that age, you shouldn't 'need' a forum anymore to ask questions about it. Leave like the LGBT/Preggo forums for all ages, but the sex ones i think should be closed after you turn 21...

Yeah I know older people may have more insight. But it's a little weird to get advice from someone who's like 30 or 35 when you're only like 15 or 16 isn't it?

Why? Surely people over 21 are some of the most qualified people to give such advice?

Also, this should be in suggestions..

22:36 [Ergg] One word: Birth control
22:37 [Jamie] That's two words.

I dont know. It might be a bit wierd for some people, but I think they would know more about relationships and a LOT more about sex than teenagers that are new to it.
But I can see how you might find it wierd. If it bothers you pretend they're 15 or something XP

Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Well, then that means Jaguar and other people can't post. That's not fair. I think that older people have a better chance of giving better advice than the younger ones.

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

Some of the best advice I have seen around the Sex and Puberty is from CanadaCraig who is 46.

Hi TJ,

I do think that this would be best posted as a suggestion if you feel as though it would be a good idea. Posting this as a suggested would also let you see how many people voted yes or no to implementing your suggestion which would be the equivalent of the poll that you've posted here.

I think I'll close this now and suggest that you do post this as a suggestion instead of a topic, as it seems that you're quite keen on the idea.

To give my opinion though, I believe that with age comes experience - especially with puberty/sexual issues, a twenty-one year old will have gone through puberty and will have more experience and advice than a 13 year old who has not had the experience, for example.

Take care.
