See this series, Should We Control Teen Sexuality?

A lot of relevant and related issues are addressed.

This is a cultural minefield on many levels, with no easy one size fits all answers.

For the record, I believe imp_62 raises a lot of very salient points (with which I am in agreement), all of which lead back to the need for ongoing discussions and better parenting, for starters.

I’ve always had an issue with Teen Sexuality. On one hand we learn that sex is a very private matter, but the minute a teen has issues, it becomes their parent’s issue (In the parent’s mind anyway).

My sex life from the beginning was between me and my partner (and my doctor). I guess I’m atypical because I was at our family doctor asking for birth control at 16 —all by myself.

IMHO there is nothing more betraying that a whole society who thinks YOUR PRIVATE LIFE is there business because of your age. Teenagers are not objects, they are INDIVIDUALs.

Thanks for starting this thread; I am not sure what else I have to add, but I will keep reading. As to your last comment, I agree that sexual activity is a very private matter. It is up to parents to enable their children to handle sexuality safely and appropriately. When sexual activity becomes an at risk behaviour with health implications, the lines are a bit more vague, and I think it is very difficult to say what is objectively “right”, and what is “wrong” in terms of parental involvement. That is why education is so important. The more and better tools we give our children, the more they will be able to take care of themselves without inappropriate outside involvement.
