Sex is a normal human behaviour that allows us to connect with other people in a very intimate way. It also allows us to create children when we’re ready to be parents. The hormones that cause puberty to occur in teens are generally thought to increase our desire to have sex. There are also social influences, such as what friends are saying about sex, and what we see, read, and hear about sex on TV, in movies, on the internet, and in musical lyrics.
We are sexual beings so it's natural that we are sexually attracted to others. Without sex, the human race would become extinct! Hormone pressure in teens is very real and can produce intense sexual desires. However, these urges are controllable. Human beings have the power to choose whether or not to have sex.
Social and media pressure
We are constantly bombarded with sexual messages in the movies, TV shows, magazine ads, and billboards or even live porn chat. The producers of these messages are taking advantage of our responsiveness to sexual stimuli to make a profit. Of course, they often fail to include information about any of the consequences of sex such as disease or pregnancy.
Pressure from a partner
The inability to say “no” is one of the reasons that teens get involved in sexual activity. It is difficult to say “no” especially to someone we care about. Practicing refusal skills can enable teens to have the self-confidence to effectively say “no”.
Many young people feel great pressure from other teenagers to become sexually active. In fact this is one of the main reasons that teens have sex. Teens do not want to be different or be rejected by their friends.
The desire to be loved
Guys use love to get sex and girls use sex to get love. Girls often give in to the lines and sexual advances of guys believing that they will receive love in return.
