i think it's totally normal to have a lot of sexual thoughts, especially when you are in your teens and hormones are going crazy. and you are probably curious too, since you have never had sex, you wanna know what it's like.
if you don't think you're ready, don't do it! there are other ways to be sexual (w/ someone else or alone) and release your sexual tension.
Thinking about sex isn't something abnormal or weird. It is actually quite normal. I mean, I look at guys and I sometimes wonder what it might be like if I engaged in a physical relationship with him. (My dark secret is out)
It is normal to be curious but you should be worried if you can only think of sex 24 hours 7 days a week. Does thinking about sex get in the way of your normal everyday life?
If your answer is yes, then you might want to see a counsellor or a family friend you trust and talk about it.
And in the meantime, there is always masturbation. Which is a great way to not only release the sexual tension but to learn more about your own body.
Lin, I couldn't have said it better myself. During your teenage (and beyond!) years, it's especially common to think about sex. Everything is just so exciting and interesting because, simply, it's new. In fact, if you think about it, there's probably something new about your body, your thoughts, or sexuality to think about every minute to keep you entertained. Like Lin said, masturbating is an incredibly easy and safe way to experiment with your sexual feelings. But, if you're thinking about sex literally every minute of every day and it's starting to interfere with things like school, work, or your social life, it might be a good idea to talk to somebody about this.

Ever had biology class? It's a natural feeling. All animals, including humans, have the chemical urge to procreate and preserve the species as soon and as many times as they can. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean you need to. Because humans are far beyond the top of the food chain, it's not necessary for humans to overproduce so the species survives (in fact, the human race could stand to deplete a little these days). So realize that your feelings are normal, but realize also that it's probably not time to act on these feelings.

Its OK, not to be ready. Having sexual thought and feelings is normal at any age, but it doesnt mean that you have to have sex with somebody. The best thing to do if you are having sexual feeling is, on your own time just masturbate. Yes, a wonderful that doesnt get a girl preggers and doesnt cause STD. As Lin said, it shouldnt interfear with your everyday activitys. If it does then you should talk to somebody.
