The Right Age for saying "Yes" to SEX ...

                          Teenage Sex is a big “NO” in our society, not only for right or wrong concept, but also due to risks and consequences of early sex. “As most teenagers have very little idea of safe sex, most episodes of teenage sex are unprotected and can lead to complications.” 'Each one of us has natural urges, but we all need to have readiness for sex' Sexologists express their views on the concept… Emotions of conflict, guilt, jealousy and other negative feelings overpower the benefits of sex, if an individual has not thought about sex and found a place for it in his or her personal system of values and ethics. Restrictions may make some youths to raise their brows, but they need to prepare themselves for the act just in the manner and dedication they set themselves for their future career. Psychologists feel that only age is no criteria for readiness for sex, it needs a lot more. Sensitivity, maturity, mastery over life skills, emotional readiness, responsibility and ability to deal with the various consequences - both pleasurable and not so pleasurable, of sex are a must to lead a joyful and healthy sex life, they opine. Before entering the domain, youths need to have complete information about reproduction and contraception, STDs including HIV and how to prevent their spread. All this requires conscious learning during adolescence and access to a youth friendly health system. Teenage Sex is a big “NO” in our society, not only for right or wrong concept, but also due to risks and consequences of early sex. “As most teenagers have very little idea of safe sex, most episodes of teenage sex are unprotected and can lead to complications.” Social problems, teenage pregnancies, STD's including HIV, scholastic, emotional and psychological problems are also not very uncommon", comments Dr Sudhir Singh, a Sexologist. Dr Singh states that many young men have developed impotence or premature ejaculation, and in case of women, an aversion to sex after such poor episodes. Mostly sex happens in hurried circumstances, in an improper ambience and between inexperienced people, thus the quality of the episode leaves much to be desired, he adds. Non-availability of consensual or individualized partners facilitates the liaison with sex workers or with people who have existing multiple sexual partners - leading to increased chances of STDs. Most girls and boys have not had the time, ability or skills to think through their sexuality and sexual conduct. They may land up with remorse, guilt, confusion and anxiety - all of which have bearing and impact on future sexual episodes and life in general.
