Mine are religious so it was always no sex before marriage. Every time I had a boyfriend Id hold back because I'd think of them and feel guilty. What about you guys?

Save it for someone special, wait till you're older and find the person you'll stay with sort of thing. Not unreasonable IMO

My mam let me and my girlfriend sleep in the same bed after being together 6 weeks (we were both 17 going on 18?) and we were together 3 years. And guess what? I am NOT a dad!

They show trust and respect and they get it back. If your parents try to stop you, your most likely gonna try anyway.

Don't let your parents dictate your sex life, if you want to have sex or mess about, do it! (and of course remember protection ;3)

My parents are religious so don't care about before marriage/after marriage whatever, they just fuss massively that when I do start having sex I have to use protection.

IMO sex before marriage is a good thing, you should know if you and your partner are sexually compatible, but each to their own as long as the couple is happy.

Not really, me and my boyfriend have been together for four years and we both agree that we will save sex until the day we are married, there's nothing to look forward to if you've done it all before.

Why would we divorce over sex? You must be very shallow.

I'm asexual, so my parents don't really bother about it with me. My dad cheats on my mum, so he can't exactly tell any of us what to do to be honest aaand all of my other siblings are over eighteen. My dad honestly doesn't care about anything we do, and my mother's never really shown concern in that spectrum towards my siblings (even when my sister fell pregnant at sixteen, lol). So yeah, I think my parents are pretty cool with whatever.

Dad doesn't want to know, which is fair enough, and my mum just told me to be discerning. And also said that just because it was legal doesn't mean it's compulsory. My mum has many wise life lessons.

My parents are very Game of Thrones about it all.

Sex isn't as basic as that..pretty fundamental in a good relationship not really about shallowness.

Because intimacy is a crucial part of a relationship. If you can not be sexually satisfied by your partner, your relationship will never be totally fulfilled.

Don't call me shallow because your not practical.

Do you honestly believe that? Like you never look forward to a delicious meal if you've eaten that food before? Sex with someone you love is ****ing awesome, trust me, you look forward to it even after countless times.

Basically, non-disclosed. We have a very British attitude where we don't really talk about such things. When I've had girlfriends round it hasn't been a problem, but that wasn't till I was nineteen anyway.

I think if you're really attracted to each other, in love and are considerate lovers, you'll have good sex. It isn't that hard to do. I don't see any reason anyone couldn't sexually satisfy someone who finds them very attractive, under normal circumstances.

I don't actually know, I've avoided the subject to be fair, being religious they might want me to wait until I'm married or until I'm in a monogamous relationship but I don't really know

Extremely open and accepting. I'm a discerning and sensible person by nature, so she's never had cause to worry or warn me about anything. The few times it did come up it was only ever been about emphasising the importance of "when I'm ready" and being with someone I care about.

Which is possibly why I'm one of the few girls from high school who didn't end up either pregnant or going completely off the rails when I got to university.

"Just for God's sake don't get anybody pregnant."

Yeah thanks, Dad. I'll try to bear that in mind.
