How young is too young? Can I get a confession in here…

Hey bloggity blog world, I have a question to ask you?!

At what age is too young to engage in sexual activity? What makes it too young? What makes it wrong, considering all involved are similar ages and consensual for both parties?

We all know the consequences from sex. What about adding a consequence into the mix. Do you still feel the same way?

Sex makes babies and giving a women has to decided what’s best for her and her body.. what happens when sex makes a baby? When is it too young? Life allows it to happen, it does not make it right, but what’s your thoughts on the porous of a young woman conceiving a child so young? Women typically can have a baby long before actually becoming a woman. In fact it seems that the female body is evolving to began the process of being able to conceive a child much sooner than in the past.

We (humans) live longer now you’d think since we no longer have to have a baby while still a baby our self. Life seems to mirrored things in the other direction.

I just wonder why? Why would life let become equipt to make a baby when we are so young still, when today we live much longer than ever before. Out bodies still not even fully grown and having the urges signaling the brain to make a child who is obviously larger in comparison to a woman who is older and better made to handle the obvious?

  1. Okay, this may be totally off of what you are getting at but I somehow always throw in a few personal experiences into everything.

    My boyfriend was 17 when his daughter was conceived. I know that we have all heard stories about being “young and dumb” but honestly I don’t think it is about that. We are all educated enough when we are younger, whether it be school or parents or anyone else. Everyone knows what happens when you have sex and we are all aware of the consequences. If you are not, you should not be having sex. I would like to say that my boyfriend’s daughter is now five and the sweetest little girl. I love her with all of my heart and my being and I wouldn’t trade her for the world. I know that it has been a lot harder for my boyfriend to have to grow up so quickly and I think that is where a lot of the problems lie when teens get pregnant. They just don’t realize how hard it is going to be, whether you are a man or a woman.

    Looking back, I wish I would have waited to engage in anything sexual. It puts a lot of pressure on you when you make that commitment to someone, no matter your age. Being young, like 16 or so, you never really understand what it is to make a commitment like that to someone.

    I am not exactly sure why our bodies have adapted in such a way that we could conceive much earlier than before, especially if we are living a lot longer.

    I think maybe with our health staying steady as we get older and living into an older age, our bodies may have “gotten healthier” all around, boosting our reproductive system. I’m really not all that sure. It’s just a matter of opinion I suppose.

    • Good point about being overall healthier now!

      I was also 17 when I had my son. He’s a teenager now. (I feel old!)

      I was a single mom and it was hard work raising a child. I’m sure just taking care of a child even somewhat is difficult but when you are truly raising a child to be somebody responsibly its an entirely different difficult! I’m sure you understand that!

      Good for you accepting his daughter. That is a hard thing to do. My boyfriend has took over being a father to my son. It takes a really big person to do this. IMO its even more difficult than just an adoption where the child is not connected to either. You have to deal with the other parent, or the lack of the other parent, and knowing the child is a part of his/her past. Knowing that child will forever and always be more than you can ever be. They hold a piece of their heart that nobody else can compete with.

      As a mom and knowing the other side, I respect people like you and my boyfriend for manning up (or woman upping!) and accepting the child. I’m not sure I could do the same. I know I could not feel the shoes you guys have and I’d feel selfish with my thoughts.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! 🙂

  2. Coincidentally before I saw this post I was reading an article about girls who reach puberty early and the effect it can have on them,the article mentions one girl who had her first period at 9 years old,I cannot even begin to contemplate how scary that must have been .

    You may find it interesting reading.
    As for the question about how young is too young for sexual activity well to me I think it really just depends on how mature the person is,some girls are very mature and adult thinking when they are 16 or 17 however some guys are still immature at 21,indeed some never seem to grow up,it’s a hard question and one that I don’t feel very confident in answering,sorry if that’s a cop out but I just think it depends on the personality and psychology of the individual.
    Another thought provoking post.Thanks.Your blog is great reading.

    • Right… a cop out… none of that! 😛

      I get your point. Everyone is different. It makes sense completely. Sometimes 50-something is still too young.. But an 18 year old maybe plenty old enough.
