Question KIDS having sex?! - April 15th 2009, 11:57 AM

Just curious... Was talking to a friend of mmine and well, long story short her EX wanted to have sex when they saw eachother next... And what got me about this is... THEY'RE 12!!!!!!!! WTF?! I think that horible! I talked to her more and what i can gather is that he didn't love her, he only wanted sex... On top of that, he ADMITTED to her about gettting another girl PREGNANT!!!!!

So iam just woundering... What you guys think about this?!I think its absurd and kids should stay kids and enjoy life! Not risking having kids, std's and all that... I just think that its stupid... What do you guys think? I mean even if its love...WAIT another 3 years AT LEAST till its SOMEWHAT legal!!!! I was just so pissed when i thoguht about this more... ARGH!

So what are your opinions? Do you think kids should be in a hurry to grow and up and be engaging in sexual acts before like at least 15?!

This has been going on for years now. The kids who are having underage sex should be more educated etc. it's the same thing being said all the time.

I don't approve of it at all because I don't think that they do fully understand what they're doing and when they're older they could probably end up regretting it.

He must be kidding. Its too soon for sex not even for a making a baby.
I just want to know what his parents say to the pregnancy if this happened .

Its not easy for 12 years old to find a job . Not good even if hes being a millionaire.

I know some younger kids (age 13) who had sex. It makes me so sad--they will never get to be KIDS and will grow up too fast and end up being super confused. I think that this just goes to show that our world is messed up!! The media especially is influencing things like this and SOMETHING has to be done but I honestly don't know what.

Re: KIDS having sex?! - April 15th 2009, 02:50 PM

I just couldn't believe what i was hearing! But like wow... I cant believe this is the world we live in... In a few decades we're going to be making kids mate like we do animals at like the age of 10 -_- I just cant believe this... Iam so disgusted and sad that this is what the kids of today are doing I mean having a special someone to go to when your sad at that age is okay, but not ahving sex or any other sexual acts... Thats just going to far in my opinion... Its just sad that not all but alot of kids are engaging in sexual acts at such a younge age they should be out kicking our ass at Halo or Call of Duty, not playing around in the bedroom with the lights off

When I was 12, I had so many offers to have sex with different guys, its unbelieveable. Of course I was completey gobsmacked by every offer & I turned down every offer & am glad that I declined.

One guy even said...when I was about 12/13...'lets have anal sex instead of normal sex, so that way we wont get pregnant'

Anyway back on topid. Bring back Sex Ed!

Re: KIDS having sex?! - April 15th 2009, 03:49 PM

Well I've never had sex but did do some things (like hand jobs and receiving oral) when I was 13 but I didn't rush into anything and was with the guy for over a year. I don't really know what to say about it, I'd be a hypocrite if I said they shouldn't be doing things like that at their age because they're only 1 year younger than me when I first started doing stuff. I agree though that they should be more educated about sex especially if they're going to do it at that age. Also, I do think it's slightly wrong that they're getting pregnant at that age it could cause a lot of problems, they can't get a job, they won't be able to do their best at school etc.

This saddens me and frankly grosses me out... I didn't even think about sex at all when I was 12. I was busy having fun and engaging in childsplay, not thinking about who's gonna be my next lay... that's just so messed up.

The huge problem with setting an age limit is that people mature at different rates. However, I do agree that 12 is too young. It's really silly, they're just trying to be older or something. When I was in grade 7, this girl dumped this guy because he lost a bet about whether he could have sex with her or not.

Ick. I know a girl who had sex at 12 and yeah, it's completely gross and sickening.

When I was 12, sex was the last thing on my mind. Well no, it wasn't on my mind at all.

I don't know, kids lately are growing up so fast. I see 10 year olds wearing make up. It's so weird. =/

They need to learn to be kids.

A guy in my class had sex just after he'd turned thirteen. Among our peers this was pretty gobsmacking; we were shocked by people our age SMOKING back then. Oh, the innocence. I think sex at that age is FAR too young.

I have to admit at 12 i was not thinking about sex at all,i wasn't thinking about boys never mind that ew

that being said i had sex at 15, and was taking clothes off on webcam from about 13, its just pressure kids feel the pressure to be cool and be sexy and do all this stuff because of tv, and magazines and stuff and you get so much attention if you do

it sucks, and i think it's awful how we don't have a childhood really anymore but well society has to change first

I agree with Fiona. It's the media that influences this and society pushes it. They show young kids that it's okay to pose half nude and those preteen magasines often talk about sex and such. They paint the image that it's good to do and that you must in order to be liked and accepted. It's really too bad.

who are we to judge?

i see no problem with kids having sex at 12/13/14 so long as both parties consent. it would be stupid to think that kids aren't going to have sex. the teenage pregnancy would reduce if people would just accept the fact that it happens and tell kids to use protection rather than preaching not having sex at all. obviously if one of the kids is over 16 and one isn't it could be problematic, however.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Re: KIDS having sex?! - April 15th 2009, 07:23 PM

I say offer sex-ed in a way that's actually useful. Saying "use condoms don't do this and that" is not too helpful. For one, sex-ed tends to be stigmatized and usually taken as a joke. The way it would be useful is to show pictures of STDs or STIs, which may be done now, however, I'm sure the parents would bitch about it.

If you tell a kid who is say, 11 years old, to not have sex presuming he's in a bet to or wants to due to the media and society, you need to say why. The problem is, with lots of the crap on the media, the kids generally aren't given another side of the story and deem what they see to be true. If you tell them not to, then you're contradicting what they know and need to give good reasons for it. Saying "don't have sex, use condoms" makes them question "why?". Giving the answer of it'll ruin their childhood may not occur to them and they may not even understand how or why it would.

It may be horrible but if it bothers you so much, identifying this problem is useless as it's been identified for quite some time. The answer needs to lie within how to remove the problem effectively in a way the kids understand, accept and of course, makes the bitchy parents happy. The problem with this method is that it's likely to be taken by the media and as usual, twisted around or others will dislike it and twist it around. Then, deal with untwisting it along with the other problems.

I think there should be something in the media to show that sex is wrong for young kids, although, that'd work only in theory. However, if it causes no problem and if the kids are all willing, then toss them a condom or two, some lube and say go for it.

i do agree it has been going on for a really long time and i don't like the fact i mena i don't even like the fact that i got pregnant at 16 but i turned 17 later that year. and so i know i have no room to be talking but i don't like the fact kids having kids. it is sad and i mean some think they have to do it just to fit in and that is said or some think it is the only way to get money. there are so many things out there that does pressure them into doing it to.

It's been going on for some time, I know some of my friends who had sex at the age of 13 and now she's always insulting herself because of it. I don't like the fact that they just can't wait until they're older. It's also kind of sad because it's going to have some mental effect on them.

Not only is it wrong, it's kind of disgusting looking, it's like having a set of toothpicks doing each other. Not a pretty sight.


Now that I think about it, I do remember being one of those 'kids' at the age of 11 planning to have sex with the girl next door, and she was 10. I had it all planned and everything, the only thing that stopped it was that her mom grounded her that day... I think about it now and I feel sick in my stomach.

Girls that age shouldn't have sex, they would be so fragile and not developped. Guys shouldn't have sex at that age because a 11/12/13/14/15 year old guy ISN'T attractive... Yeah, I said it. They aren't.

So does that mean the day before a guy turns 16 he's not attractive but the minute that clock hits 12am he turns into a hottie? =P

No one is ready for sex at the age of 12. I don't care how mature/adult you think you are, a child is a child.

No 12-year-old is ready to deal with the emotional and physical consequences of sexual intercourse.

Period.

I agree with EDGE. Same as violence.

TV news few years ago shows whole world that someone in US kills some schoolmates in school except himself. And .... ? Now it looks like a "TREND" In Norway happened that last year, Germany last month. They simply shows us. HOW TO.

Maybe little bit offtopic.

I completely agree with this.

When I was 12 I wasn't thinking about it, but that doesn't mean other people wern't.
Schools need better Sex Ed classes, instead of just saying, "Sex=bad"

It is awful. But at the time, particularly if your of that age and being pressured towards/actually doing it.. it doesn't seem wrong.

I was only 13 when I lost my viginity, and my boyfriend was 6 months younger than me. He was 12. Looking back I find it discusting that I could do such a thing, I mean my little brother is 13, and he's waaaaaaay too young to be having sex.

But at the time, I didn't see it. In our minds, we both thought we were ready. So we did it.. Looking back I don't think I was ready. But actually I don't regret it.

Yea, that is way too early. Pretty much all of you have hit the reasons why whether it's from media, peer pressure, etc. Something to consider is kids now days are maturing younger and younger. 11 and 12 is a more common age anymore for puberty. Thanks to the movies, music, TV shows, etc kids think it's ok no matter the age. I read a few posts up from this one about the bodies not being ready and that's a huge problem especially if the girl gets pregnant. Yea, this is way too young but sex is considered recreational and not the true intention of what it actually is meant for.

No 12-year-old is ready to deal with the emotional and physical consequences of sexual intercourse.

Period.

If the kids are Educated about the Risk involved in sex then I see no problem.

No. It is not okay for kids to be having sex. I don't care if it feels good or not. I'm almost sure that basically no 11 or 12 year old have been in love. I believe I fell in love at 16, and if a twelve year old told me they felt the same way, I don't believe they could understand it. And if they really were in love, and were broken up with, how are they going to deal with their broken heart?

I even did a similar thread on this awhile back. A 12 year old cannot have a job, cannot support a child alone. Think about the surroundings around them. "Hi, I'm Jill, I'm 12 and expecting in March." Sounds shocking doesn't it? And even if the male/female was even old enough to have a job would most likely get into trouble with the law.

A 12 year old is still waiting for normal body parts to arrive. Soooo... Developing another human beings body parts inside their womb sounds crazy doesn't it?

Who says so? I think the same thing.

P.S. I guess we can just start handing out Kama Sutras to 12 years old on their birthdays. Is that what some of you are trying to say?

Parents and teachers should better educate them. I think its really gross and sad. Nobody should partake in sexualy activity until they're educated and at least in highschool.

well you can, but its just not realistic. unless you know every 12 year old in the world, which you don't, then you can't say whether or not theyre mature enough to have sex.

i think people need get into the real world and realise that kids will have sex whether they like it or not. a bunch of people saying how "shocking" it is isn't going to change anything.

I'm surprised how many people have said they weren't even thinking about sex at the age of 12. I know I was, and so were lots of my friends.

I agree it generally isn't a good idea for 12 year olds to be having sex, but it's not shocking nor disgusting. In fact, it's completely natural!

I think the best thing is to teach kids all the facts about safe sex and such, but encourage them to wait until they fall in love. The emphasis needs to be on building healthy relationships, self-worth, and tell them how much more special sex is when you're in love(for most people).
