Day by day in this very increasing modern world new studies are revealed and the statistics are being revised. Experts now say that increased sex education and callous attitude of parents has eventually helped in bringing down the average of losing virginity among the youth at early age. There are many reasons for it such as declining puberty age i.e. for girls it is 9-10 years and for boys 10-11 years.
Television, magazines and internet, social networking sites further creates curiosity among the teenagers and make them feel like to experience the concept he/she has gathered about the past years about sex. The parents’ uninterested attitude forces a child to find support and look for alternatives such as sex for stress. Attraction among the opposite sex is natural, but nowadays teenagers take all in the stride of fun. It is also seen that that intake of alcohol and peer pressure group is another major reason in teenagers which lowers down the average of losing virginity to 17 years.
Studies have revealed that children, these days, are losing their virginity at a very young age. Experts say that with the average age of puberty going down to 9-10 years for girls and 10-11 years for boys, the average age for losing virginity too is going down. And the deadly paring with this is — awareness about sex is more these days and information (not always from the right sources) is freely available. Television, movies and most prominently the Internet is loaded with extremely easily accessible information and graphic details. This, most of the time, helps to entice the youngsters to experiment, who already have hormones raging through them.
To tackle with all the complications, lower maturity level of children and its consequences should be dealt by regular counseling actions along with parents. The teenagers should be taken seriously and must be made aware of the good and the bad consequences. Children need to know that sex is just not a physical attribute but a gift in a relationship which should be taken seriously and mere not a fun.
Also, teenagers need to understand that saying no to losing virginity at young age is not a sin. It must be taken seriously and one should know the limits.
