Teen Sex Talk, Minus the BS

The Huffington Post has been running a series of articles by teens, about sex. So far, all of the stories in the series, called “Teen Sex: It’s Complicated,” cover the two topics that you’d expect them to – virginity and loss of virginity – but each perspective is markedly different, nuanced, and far more thoughtful than the media usually gives teenagers credit for.

Rather than making a sweeping statement about Teenagers And Sex Today, we’re going to let the authors speak for themselves:

“I don’t even feel comfortable talking to my doctor about it because she’s known my family for so long and thinks I’m sweet and perfect. I wouldn’t want her opinion of me to change.” – Paige, 17

“ No matter how much he reassured me, I had a subtle fear my boyfriend would stop loving me. I also expected a monumental change in myself after sex. But afterward, I felt the same. I still loved him, he still loved me (to the teenage extent of love), and I felt okay with myself.” – Elise, 16

“Don’t have sex in the back of a car. Just. Don’t. Trust me.” – Michaela, 18

“ I do wear a purity ring, but I never really know if I’m going to keep that promise. The consequences of premarital sex do worry me. I do, however, enjoy the thought of sharing a special moment of intimacy with someone that you do love.” – Jazmine, 17

“I realized I wasn’t ready to have sex and it was not the ideal situation (being on a futon didn’t help). But, in my perpetually practical and mature manner, I’ve dealt with it.” – Anna, 19

“I’m not some Puritan who wants to clap people in irons for the crime of premarital fornication and furrow my brow at “sinners.” I think everyone has the right to make their own choices concerning sex and I’m glad they respect my decision, even if they don’t agree with it.” – Grayson, 19

We encourage you to give each of these articles a read. We’re looking forward to the rest of the series.

For a truly hilarious-in-retrospect loss of virginity story, we present Maria Falzone on her first time.
