It seems in thisday and age children are children for a lot less, When did having sex become a past time and losing your virginity to anyone become nothing? I remember the 'shame' of still being a virgin at 16 when everyone else was losing it (when in reality most were stil in the same boat as me, yet less honest) But when did it become shameful to be a virgin at 16, when did losing your virginity mean so little? Granted there are those who hold out not till marrage but until they feel its right or with the right person, but there is still a large amount ready to jump into bed with anyone just so they can say there not a virgin. There was a tv show on BBC 3 a few week's ago about a girl who at 14 has a 8 month old baby, she got pregnant the first time she had sex, when she was 13. Maybe i'm just old fashioned in my ways, maybe its that i'm a dad watching my children slowley growing up before me, that i still believe that losing your virginity should mean something, sex is not just a bit of fun you do with every tom dick and harry. I'm not saying wait till your married until you have sex, but at least wait until your old enough to understand what it entails, at least lose it to someone that really means something to you (though the teens think the person they lose it to does mean something) Am i alone in thinking children are growing up way too fast?
