sex orientation

Postby chenwithasterisk » Thu Jan 11, 2007 11:06 am

im just quite curious. why do people think of having sex when they are older?

e.g. when i was 5 or 6, all i could think of if playing, i didnt even know wat sex is.
how do people know that?do they learn this by themselves? for wat reason?curiosity?

cheers

Hormonally definately. When our body matures and is ready and able to reproduce. So if our body is ready, our minds will have to be also. Ready for relationships and the drive to have intercourse in order to reproduce offspring and successfully raise it!

Definitely hormones and what is left of whatever natural instinct that we possess. Same goes for playing, most every baby creature on Earth plays as it prepares them for their life later on. If you need more, check out google or wikipedia.

Age and mediators of gene expression that are responsible for production of hormones are also primarily important...

Lot of things matter!
Like environment of body,mind etc. & after all its just for survival;
but if survival comes with satisfaction then why to hesitate such a pleasure?
Take it with a pintch of salt!

Because like anything else, too much of a good thing isnt good either. There are many diseases and risks that can come with sex especially when immature young people are having sex. Thats the problem and why young people should really not be engaging in sexual behaviours. Its not just physical, there is often baggage that comes with it. Although there is good in sex, there is also bad, just like food. Eating is great too, and taste is also pleasurable however in excess it can be a) unhealthy and b) you will loose appreciation and value for it if u dont respect it!!

make sense?

Or when sex becomes too important, you stop doing what's human...

It is a basic instinct of animal to reproduce. The feeling and the thought is a sign that biologically we are ready to be parents, have babies ;)

But are 12/13 year olds really ready to be parents?

Physically, yes they are. Emotionally and mentally, that's open to judgement, but I'm sure most people would say, definitely not.
