Mr. A

I am a 25, male.
In my opinion sex is great but loosing your virginity before reaching the age of 16 as is happening in so many places now a days is really sad. I know some girls that have lost it when they were 13 and say there is nothing wrong with that. Imagine your daughter/son at the age of 13 they are still a babies. So how can you say there is nothing wrong with loosing your virginity that young. I think that is just the week ones that cant hold on to their virginity for longer.

P.S this is not posted against the article above i just had to get it of my chest.

Thank you Mr A, I appreciate your input!

I feel I must re-iterate, as per my May 3rd post, that encouraging a 13 year old person to lose their virginity is not something I would do. A 13 year old, as you rightly point out, is a child.

Having said that, neither would I judge someone for their personal choices.

I believe the quicker you lose your virginity the better it is. I'd rather die than be a 40-year-old virgin.


where is God in all of this? really?! God has a plan from beginning to end and it is GOD, as a fatherly figure in my oppinion, trying to save young girls of thier innocence. He wants girls to stay pure until marriage for a reason! To make sure they (including their partner)are ready to raise a child. Also, to make sure they are with who he made specially for them....duh. ;)WWJD.
