Well I'm a fifteen year old guy and i just had a question for all of you parents of teenagers out there. What is your view on teen sex? I have thought about trying it (sex) when I've been offered it before but I'm worried what my parents would say. I know that the ultimate decision is up to me, and it would seem kind of weird if I did something like that seeing as I am almost an Eagle Scout. So should I ask my parents if it is okay for me to have sex? I understand all of the risks and everything and I guess I would just like to try it to see if I like it. Please give an honest opinion. Thank you all very much.
For The Parents out There
I just wanted to add that I usually have a pretty close relationship with my parents and I don't even know their opinions on teen sex. So any advice on how to approach this subject with them would be greatly appreciated.
Well, few parents would say, "yes it's OK". Even if they did it themselves, they generally feel it's their duty to discourage it. However, a cousin of my wife had her 16 year old daughter tell her recently that she and her boyfriend were going to start having sex regardless, so could she arrange for a prescription for the pill? When the question is put that way, she didn't have much choice. (Also, she liked her daughter's boyfriend.)
I might have to deal with the question myself in the next few years.
well i dont thing u have to ask if you have your GF over and your close to her and you kiss in front of your parents then they will know you are or soon will be having sex.
they know that you have sex ed in school you dont have to ask them its not really worth it because once they know ur having sex they will stop and talk to you just to make shure you have all the info.
my parent dont say any thing they just told me that if i end up with a kid then i have to get a job and they arnt going to pay for what i did.
its 2005 they know.
I help with PC problims also =D
Shy+Girls=NO SEX =(
Why dont girls give more hints on who t...
As a parent all I would say is that make sure you are protected.....babies are not the only thing to worry about.........I hope that when my sons start having sex they are able to talk to me straight about things.....and as long as I know they are being careful, and respectful of the girl they are with, then I'll be ok about it.......your parents went through the same thing you are going through, so they do know how your are feeling.....
Get a taste of Old Time Religion..........lick a witch grin<br />
Although I'm not a parent, I do have a bit of advice that my parents gave me. 'Don't ever do anything you'd be afraid to tell or talk to your parents about.' Just sit them down and talk to them about it, and ask them for their opinion on the subject, and I'm pretty sure they'll be understanding.
<span style="font-style: italic">things we've learned from the movies - - when they're alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each other....
I think religion may have a part to play in this situation.... If your parents are strongly religious then they are likely to disapporove.
And also I think 15 is a little young to be having sex...if you were sure about it, you wouldn't be asking here for reassurance would you?
You have plenty more years ahead of you to be having sex, but if you are still unsure about your parents views, then maybe ask them? You could bring it up casually in a conversation, or ask them a question about sex.
As a parent you have to kind of judge how mature each child is at that stage of their lives when you think they are starting to get serious about sex. They can protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy and disease but sometimes the emotional aspects of early sexual encounters can be rough as well. Yes, we have all been through it and I can remember being a teenager too with all the uncertainties and such but its very hard to communicate this to your kids, especially when it seems that the last person they want to talk to about this stuff is their parents! I guess thats why this 'site is such a good idea...
Ym GF's parents are really sensible about it, they said so long as it's serious and you've been going out for a year+ then you can have sex but wear a condom. My mum said the same (but without the year bit!) she just said don't do anything stupid and wear a condom!
