Is it a good idea to have sex before you’re 13?

Hi... I'm wondering if it's normal to want to have intercourse at the age of 13-14? I'm a little embarrassed about it... I don't want children either... I know there is a 16-year age limit... is it stupid to have it at the age of 14?


It's not abnormal to think about sex when you're 13-14 years old, but it's also not abnormal to wait to do it. But it's a long way from feeling the urge actually to do it. Sexual desire awakens at different ages, but sexual desire is also related to what you watch and read about. If you watch a lot of movies or read magazines with sexual content, you will think and dream about sex much more than those who do not.

It's not a good idea to have sex when you're so young because, as you say, you're not ready for all the consequences of possible pregnancy, but also Sexually transmitted diseases and emotional attachment and rejection. 

Sex is very intimate, and you put yourself in a vulnerable situation when you have sex with someone without being married. Sex is something that belongs in marriage and is meant to bind the two of you together for life. Even if you want sex, it's not what you need right now. The reason why the age of consent is set at 16 is because professionals also believe that sex can be harmful when you are too young.

This website provides guidance based on what the Bible says, so regardless of age, we recommend waiting until you get married before having sex.
