Everyone has sex (by which I assume you mean intercourse) at different times in their lives, with no one age being "normal" or "right." Some people don't have intercourse at all!

What matters the most is that you felt prepared for any sexual activity, fully consented to everything you were doing, and used protection.

Also, virginity is a social construct, and it doesn't change anything about your worth when you "lose" it. (Where does it go?) So don't worry about being "bad" because you had intercourse at a certain age.

we used to have this great thread where people talked about how old they were when they started having sex. well, the thread got huge, then blew up and died. i tried to start a new one, and actually, it's a pretty cool thread and deserves a bump.

so check it out, and give some thought to why you chose to have sex when you did and talk about it.
