Icon1 Sex - Peer pressure - Dont rush it.

With peer pressure and the emotional times teens go through like puberty and school a lot of the time they do things they may regret doing and one of these things is rushing into having sex.

What friends may say


Some of your friends may say things to you like "I have had sex already, im proud not being a virgin", "Havent you lost your 'V' yet", the list could go on forever.

What you may think

You may think that sex is something cool to be having as a teen since all of your friends are claiming to be "doing it". You may feel like youre left out, or missing something or maybe you feel like youre inadequate for being a virgin.

How to deal with this

If youre feeling inadequate, you certainly shouldnt be. They are gloryfying sex and losing their virginity and you should never allow what they say to make you feel like rushing into having sex.

Sex in my own opinion should never be rushed or done because your mates are having it. You must realise that these friends possibly regret having sex at their age and probably had it with someone they didnt care for at all or love.

Sex I think should be between two people who love each other and who are both ready to have a sexual relationship and are of course at an age where they are able to legally consent to sex.

When your friends begin to gloryfy sex to you simply ignore them and always remember to never let it get to you.

In time you will more than likely have sex with someone you love and the time will be right. Remember that sex isnt cool or something to brag about and that your friends may even be bragging about something they have never done themselves but are peer pressured into claiming.

I hope this article has helped you, please leave me any feedback or your thoughts on this subject in general

Thanks for reading.

Wonderful article - however, I did not know there was a legal age to have sex.

By the legal age I mean the legal age of consent, where it is not classified as rape for example in the UK you may be 15 and going out with a 17 year old, if you were to sleep with them they could potentially be arrested for non-consensual sex. I may change that Thanks for pointing that out.

In the US it's normally 18 although it's 17 in some places.
Otherwise it's counted as statutory rape.

Nice article.

in norway it's 16. but it's really confusing sometimes, cause nobody really knows what they are talking about when it comes to the "legal age". So our teachre was going to check.. but she has completely forgotten about it.

great article btw!

Legal age... but if 2 people love each other you can do it at whatever age you want it?

As long as both want it? :o

(And by that i think you should be at least 15+ and have thought about it)

there's no age to have sex but in society minds, however, there is. tell someone that you had sex 4 the 1st time when you were 13 and tell another that you had sex 4 the 1st time when you were 16. ppl's reaction will be diferent.

Well what if I said I don't believe in love?
I never though that any man and woman love each other, they are just attracted. In nature there is no such thing as marriage, so we aren't genetically programmed to be like that, the society makes you think you love somebody. The true reason behind getting a relationship is to get laid and to be socially accepted, since people with no gfs/bfs are looked down upon.
