What Age (If Any) Is Too Early to Lose Your Virginity?

While perusing through Us Weekly at the gym this morning, I saw an interesting quote from Megan Fox that got me thinking. She said, "If a guy loses his virginity at 15, that's great, but if a girl does, it's shocking and awful. . . I think that's wrong."

I find it surprising that she even has to say this. I mean I thought these social stigmas about sex have changed . . . but maybe I'm wrong. Do you agree with her statement? Are young girls who have sex considered sluts, and young men considered studs? Is there a certain age a person should wait before they become sexually active? Is it different for guys and girls? Or do you think it's a personal decision for the individual to make?

I think you should not lose it until you can support the possible result and anyone under 16 is way too young i was 18 and still thought it was too early

It always seems like women are losing there virginity before men. I know loads of girls that have already gone the distance at 16 but very few men and lets be honest us blokes wouldn't be as quiet about it!

I agree people mature at different rates, but I would think under 17 is too young. You have your whole adult life to have sex, why bother with all that when you should enjoy being a kid.I waited until 20, and by then I had no doubts. I wasn't in love with the guy either, but I was confident enough to know what I wanted. I was on birth control & we used a condom and it was fine. I think if you have any second thoughts at all, it's too early.

I feel that sex is based on a lot of things, maturity and sexual and relationship understanding being a big part of that. I was raped at the age of 14 and became pregnant, i lost the child before 2 months was up. But ever since then whenever me and whoever i'm with at the time have an intimate sex it means a lot to me, it shows me I've nothing to fear from them and that I'm loved, I've been with the same person for 2 and a half years, i'm 16 years old and have been having sex from about a year now, and the first time i had sex willingly i was a little over nine years old. Though i really believe that was too young, it was with another female, the same age as me: Her grandfather molested her often, and she reconciled with me, i was the closest thing to her that showed her love and affection and when she tried to take it to the next level(sex) I didn't refuse. That was loving and beautiful, but it was waaay too early. Now i feel ready for it, it's not something i'm doing to make someone else feel better or because i'm being forced to. It's my choice, it's my love, and it's beautiful Anyone who puts a age on loving sex is a fool, for at any age it can pop up and it all depends on the individual.

Havin' sex at fifteen is unappropriate. Everyone should wait for the right moment and the right person especially if it's the first time then it should be special. Sadly the world has changed, hasn't it? But do remember to always use a condom.

It depends really oon the person, I'm nearly 16 and still a virgin, and I'm proud of that! I think the right age is probs 17, 18 or 19, but it depends on how mature the person is! What's sad that some girls in the grade below are not virgins, they're like 13, 14 and sexually active like crazy and not ashamed of it! I wish we had teachers treaching us about the right age to be sexually active and how to use condoms etc...

I know that the double standard defiantly is still going strong, one of my best friends had sex with her long term boyfriend and was immediately called a slut and many other terrible names, but the guy didn't have anything bad said about him. I personally think that most of the teenagers and below having sex are not responsible enough to be having it, while its not true for everyone its true for a large majority.

I don't believe that double standard -- I think it's shocking for both sides. But I think 16-18 is a really gray area and it'd have to really depends on the maturity. Any younger is too young in my eyes. I was 21 but I still sometimes think I should have waited longer. But that's about the guy, not the age.

This is going to sound weird but I had sex at an early age cause i kept having weird dreams and i thought i was gonna get raped. strange i know. But I'm ok with who i lost it too but i def. could have waited a couple years.

I definitely agree with her. I hate that we have this in our society still. I think 16 is a good age but I'd prefer that they wait until they are ready no matter what age that makes them. It's not really about age but about maturity level.

it really depends. I lost it pretty young to a guy who i loved and trusted, and i never regret it. I would rather lose it young to a long time boyfriend than at 25 to a random guy after too many cocktails. I think the situation matters more than age.
