Is it normal to have sex for the first time at 15?

I have a strong feeling the opportunity might pop up soon but I’m not sure whether to wait it out or not because I don’t know if I’m really ready.

  • It’s certainly not unheard of, but sex has a dicey element to it that makes your younger years a bit of a minefield if you get into it. But regardless of all that, you saying “I don’t know if I’m really ready” tells me you’re likely not ready, haha. And that’s totally cool. Don’t ever do it, for the first time, the last time, and all the times in between if you’re not all-in on it, in whatever aspect. You don’t need to apologize to anyone for it, or feel any pressure, whether the source of it is the hopeful sexual partner, peers, society, or just yourself, internally.

    If you can, you might want to have a talk about this stuff with an older woman in your life who you trust. Your mother, older sister, aunt, cousin, family friend, even the school nurse would talk to you if you’re too shy about it with people you have more personal relationships with.

    As a final note…. you definitely don’t need to rush into anything for opportunity’s sake, because assuming you’re into men, that opportunity will be presented to you probably to an annoying degree of frequency for most of your lifetime, lmao.

    • Thank you for sharing. I definitely agree with you, I don’t think I’m ready yet, I’m probably stick to making out until I know I’m ready. It’s just where I am people in my age range don’t view sex as a very serious thing to be worrying about and they just do it and being surrounded by that kind of hookup culture makes me wonder whether to overthink it or not.

  • There is no such thing as normal. Everyone is different. You have to make your own decision based on what feels right for you.

    There is nothing wrong with sex. In fact, it can be amazing. It's part of growing up. But just be safe. You don't want to catch an STD or get pregnant.

    Some of my female classmates in 8th grade had boyfriends in high school.

    My first girlfriend was 14 when I was 16. She had been in one, previous, short-lived relationship so wasn't a virgin when we met. She was also on the pill.

    So sex by 15 isn't uncommon.

  • I mean in middle school, there were a handful of 14/15 year old girls were pregnant.

    I wouldn't do it kid.

    You'll run the risk of pregnancy, your education, and forced to grow up quick because you have to take care of your baby. The stress as well will probably cause the Dad to leave, leaving you to raise the kid.

    You wanna keep being a kid?

    Don't have sex.

    Is it normal to have sex for the first time at 15?
    • Yeah I understand but having sex doesn’t mean you’ll get pregnant. I’m aware of the consequences and I’d to anything to be safe physically and emotionally

  • Yes. There’s nothing wrong with it.

    I had my first time at 22 but that’s because I have a bit different views.

    Which might partially be connected to my sexual exploration before the age of 10.

    At 10 I already felt like the biggest pervert in the world, so I was not sex crazed like the other teenagers, cause I had to learn self control much earlier in life.

  • Normal is a relative term. I'm sure it's average for some areas, early for some, and possibly late for others. The point is: don't worry so much about if it's right or normal.

    Worry about if YOU are ready and if this is what YOU want. Screw other people. They don't need to live with this decision YOU do. This is the type of thing you should be figuring out in the mirror, not of a phone.

  • it's normal... but highly stupid.

  • I'd say here in the UK it's very very normal

    • So people usually do it for the first time at 15?

    • Not necessarily most people but a lot have lost their virginity by 15. I did at 15 and believe it or not, I waited haha... I was fooling around with guys from the age of 13

  • I had sex at 16 but know other girls that did it at 15.

  • Many people do and many do not.

    If you're comfortable with them, and understand the risks and how to mitigate them -- and you're prepared for the consequences, then you can.

    So, again, somewhat normal and somewhat not.

  • Some do, some don't. Only do it if its something you really want to do and if so take appropriate precautions. 15 is much too young to have a child.

  • If you don’t know if you’re ready, I recommend that you sit clear boundaries and stay away from a situation that will push you into something. If you do decide you’re ready, don’t stress out about things like an arbitrary age distinction.

  • Yes, it is. Get on birth control.

  • Go for it

    • What are you measuring in your profile pic?

  • No.

    Sexually promiscuous people do and if they have already done it at 15 they are on their way to having a body count of 30 by age 25.

  • I’m waiting to lose my v card till I’m 18 and ready for that. Stick to making out and stuff like that till you’re really sure you’re ready.

    • Yeah that’s my plan. I think making out is like alright for me maybe not sex yet.

    • Awesome

  • Some people have sex at 15, others wait until their 20s. The important thing is to wait until you're with someone you care about, and you are ready to be intimate with them.

  • Abnormal and I'll advised. Concentrate on your education and character.

  • No it's a little early. Don't get prego.

    • No matter what age I’d do it I’d always prioritise my health and make sure I’m safe both physically and emotionally. I’m thinking about it and deciding whether I want to do it or not but I guess I can really decide right before it happens

  • Normal or not in my opinion is too early. I did loose my virginity at 15 and looking back I wish I hadn't had sex that young in life. I do not wish for my son or daughter or any other teenager to have sex that young.

  • It's probably illegal

    • It’s not, where I am the age of consent is 15.

  • It is probably more normal for girls.

  • Yeah I would say that’s a pretty normal age.
    just make sure you’re using protection and if you have any questions, some hesitate to ask a trusted adult

  • “Is it normal”. Look, you are 15! You have a long time to deal with sexual stuff…. LATER! Don’t do anything until you know absolutely certainly that it’s what you want. Like once you are 18.

  • For guys, its more normal for certain races more than others. For women, I'll let them answer
