Sex at a young age?

As you hear a lot, young children have been having sex and small young girls getting pregnant. Usually with no father to help raise the baby. Why do you think so many young teens are going out having sex? I believe a lot of it has to go with the music many listen to and tv/movies nowadays. Of course music and tv and movies always had these sexual themes to some of them but now its just straight out there, like they don't care about who listens to these. In many old songs had inuendos. So they were much more hidden. Now as you hear songs "Birthday Sex" and more with straight out sexual themes and words. Many teens (And adults to that matter) do NOT use protection which is a big part of sexual interaction. If you do choose to have sex, use a comdom. Probably one of the better choices. Many people of all ages think sex is a game. Many believe it's just for fun and to mess around with. When i believe it is only to have with the person you know you will spend the rest of your life with. Sharing that special bond with that special someone. If you do choose to have sex at an early age, or any age! Be protected!

Not true. If you think your ready, your arn't necissarily. A lot of people (Focusing on teens) believe they are 'ready' Only because they WANT it. :) so not ALWAYS true

Indeed i agree. A lot of teens believe they are "in love". But that is not what i was focusing on this. :) I was focusing on the Entertainment Industry.

Well thats your opinion. If you havn't realized movies and music have been increasingly talking about sex and not even directly. I'm not saying you aren't entitled to your opinion. Im absoutley sure druigs have a big part too. But thats not what i was focusing on. I was focusing on the Entertainment industry. Im not saying having sex before your married is nescissarily WRONG. And im not saying one song will make you in the "mood". Basically im trying to say is INFLUENCES people, teens especially. And i believe the songs and movies go into your conscience without your realizing it. :) Thank you for reading

So many teens believe they are in love so there reason is automatically this: "It's not wrong if two people love each other enough."

Look we're teenagers, and whether it is actually love or not does not change the fact that if you're going to have sex as a teen, you must be incredibly careful.

I personally believe it should happen only between those who are married as well.

But hey, it's your choice.

i dnt think music and movies have anythimng to do with this, now in days people rather young adults are useing more drugs it makes you not care and do things that are wrong, but i dnt nessesarly think sex is wrong, im not going to lie i have sex with my boyfriend and im 17, it just happens its not like i hear a song and say, "lets go have sex," right after.

I honestly do not think it is the music we are listening to, or the movies we are watching, or even the things we are reading that is making teens want to have sex . The reason teens have sex is because they think they are in love. Sometimes they are in love, but just not ready. And thats why they break up not to long afterward. They have sex , it gets awkward or something happens (like a pregnancy ), and they break up. And then sometimes they are not in love, they just use that as an excuse, so people who actually care about making love with someone you are actually in love with, doesnt yell at them for being stupid. And i agree you always wanna use protection like birth control &condoms, especially if your gonna have sex at a young age. You dont wanna be 13 and prego it'll ruin ur life.

I agree with the author on this subject many girls are getting pregnant at an early age and also in their teen years not only because of the music media out there but probably peer presshure

I think that they really think the guy loves them. Or maybe it was sex or they were over. It is sad that so many girls are being pushed to have sex at a young age, I have to admit. But to tell the truth, even tho we "post a comment" about this and some girl reads this knowing that her boyfriend wants sex when she comes over at 8. Our words will leave her head.

i believe that sex is a matter of being ready. it doesn't matter what age or what you watch and listen to. if you think you are ready, then you are ready. i have to say that i've had sex after one year with my boyfriend and we broke up three months later and i did really love him. and it's not because my parents don't care and don't love me, it was my choice and i stand by it.
