One said ... "I think sex is recreation, and it should be enjoyed just like any other recreation. Sex gives big physical pleasure and can help two people communicate deeply with each other. If a girl and a boy know what they are doing - I mean, if they take proper precautions to avoid having a baby, and if they are alert to the dangers of VD - then why shouldn't they have sex? I don't think they even have to be in love. As long as they both want to do it, they should go ahead and have sex pleasure. It's natural. After all, girls and boys talk together, they danche together, they play together, and all sorts of things like that. Why shouldn't they have sexual intercourse together?"
The other Said :- "I think the basis for our society is families. And the centre of the family is a married couple who ought to love each other. The couple make a home based on their relationship, and this home brings love and security to them and their children. A great part of the husband and wife's relationship is sex - not all, but a big part. Having sex helps to keep them close and loyal to each other. There's something absolutely special about having sex. I think, even though I haven't had it yet, I'm not going to have it until I get married, and then I'm only going to have it with my wife. I'm not saying that you shouldn't make out some before you're married.
That's O.K., if you like each other and it would help you get to know each other. But sexual intercourse - that should be saved for marriage. These two students express two contrasting points of view very well, I think. You may agreee with one or the other, or partly with each, and your views will probably change as you mature and grow older. Certainly, it is natural for boys and girls to be interested in each other and to be interested in sex. If boys and girls get to know each other well, they can learn to understand and appreciate their differences and likenesses, and this is excellent preparation for the future and for choosing a husband or wife if they decide they want to marry.
When you think about marriage, it's important to remember that you will marry not primarily a body, but a person - a complex human being with a background of life experience different from yours. The person's body will be important, but not nearly so important in the long run as his or her personality and character. There is certainly no point in hurrying boy-girl relationships along faster than you desire. Most people in their early teens are not yet ready for an intense relationship with a member of the opposite sex. As a matter of fact, a good many boys between the ages of ten and thirteen or even older find girls most undesirable, even if they are very curious about them. And many girls in the same age group find their boy classmates to be loud, awkward, childish, and generally repulsive. That's all right ; it is likely to change in a few years.
