      That question is controlled by the culture/society within which one exists.
      Nature says at menses, but psychologically? probably in the mid teens...there is  such a variance in mental maturity in we humans.
      Hard question to answer.

    If you are still living with your parents you are too young. Be an adult then move out then you are ready to have sex.

      Not sure about that. I  first had sex at 17, and left my parents home at 18. I don't think I was too young to have sex then.

          LOL pink umbrella, at least your mom talked to you about it. My mom told me nothing. Had sex with my first boyfriend at 15, and it was a nightmare the first time.

    It is not about age but about maturity.  Some people are ready before others, age is not that important. 

    Apart from maturity I agree with ryankett, when you fall in love!

    Many people lose their virginity in their teenage years, regretfully.

    If you were my child, then the right age would be 75. smile

    Of course there is a moral element to when it is appropriate to lose your virginity. That withstanding, I think it partially depends upon whether a person is responsible enough to use birth control consistently, and if an accident does occur, are they responsible enough to either raise a child or give it up for the betterment of the child.

    So, by ryankett criteria I should have had sex at 3rd grade???
    No,not that simple. Until you are ready for responsibility that might come from your indulgence or curiosity, or puppy love - keep it!

    I'd say a minimum age of 18 - be an adult first, but make sure you're mature enough to handle it whatever the outcome.  (last time you see your boyfriend, break up with boyfriend soon after, get pregnant, get AIDS, get any other STD....)

    I would say when you really feel ready. There is no race to do it nor a perfect age. Just chill and enjoy people, you'll eventually figure it out. In the end, sex is not something that should be feared when you do it right (when you want to, with protection and with somebody who you feel is the right partner for you).

    I wish I waited until I was 21. I don't know if there is any right age but I think a person should wait until they are more mature and aware of the world around them. So I think maybe between age 19-22?

    I'm not sure I believe there is an appropriate age. When you think about age, you must consider chronological age as well as emotional age. For example, one 18 year old may be vastly more mature than another. This is related to a variety of factors such as gender, the environment in which one was raised, and the social company one keeps. Those that are more mature are better suited to both understand and competently accept the consequences of engaging in a sexual relationship, and to enter such a relationship with the proper precautions.

    I suppose this makes me seem old fashioned, but speaking for myself, I think that losing one's virginity isn't so much about the proper age, as the proper emotion. I think that one's body is sacred and should be treated as the temple it was meant to be. Giving up one's virginity to someone that you don't love and who doesn't love or respect you, is a mistake. Virginity is like time, once it's gone you can't get it back. So treasure it. I'm not so old-fashioned that I think you have to wait for marriage, just wait for the one that makes your heart beat faster, the one that treats you like the queen or king that you deserve to be treated like and the one that you feel as if you can't live without. That will make it all the more special.
