    If I had a son, I guess that would be when he was a legal adult. Otherwise, under my roof, as a minor, I would not knowingly condone it. I realize that this does not mean he wouldn't be doing it, simply that he wouldn't be doing it with my approval.

    I´m not a parent but I do not think that you can actually decide, when your kids have sex. Well you can tell them to start in a certain age but to be honest I don´t think that they will obey.

    I guess most of the time the kids come after they had sex and tell you then about it. In Germany it is legal for Teenagers to have sex when they are 14 but even I think thats quite early but with 16 or 17 I think it´s fine. You cannot control it anyway and if I have to choose whether my kids are honest with me or simply lie to, then I prefer to let them do it from that age on.

    I don't think the word "let" is the best way of asking this question. As a parent myself (although mine is quite young..and being in your position is a thought I don't want to think about right now..)
    If your boy is legally of age.. (i.e. 18 in the US..) then there is nothing you can do to stop him from sleeping with his girl even if he lives in your house. We set rules for our children and we try to guide them along the ways that we have deemed acceptable but at some point their decisions are their own.
    My suggestion is..pull up some videos on YouTube of labor and delivery. Go to babycenter.com and look up in the tools the baby cost calculator. If that doesn't scare the horniness right out of him, nothing will.
    If you are talking about "letting" him sleep with his girl I assume you've already taught him a number of things about sex and how to prevent disease and pregnancy. You can only hope that the things you have taught him are instilled in him.
