Science can bite me.
Not really, I can see the validity in their study. Alot of people (not everyone of course) kinda get fucked up in the head when they experience sex at a young age. Don't know about the opposite end side of that, but I guess problems could arise from being a late bloomer.
I´m already fucked up in my head, but that is because I haven´t go laid yet!
Basically, they've just got a bunch of correlations but can't tell which factor is the causative agent. For instance, does waiting to have sex until later in life cause impairments in cognitive/emotional/behavioral development...or do impairments in cognitive/emotional/behavioral development cause people to wait until later in life to have sex? That's the problem with studies like this where they run statistical analyses and get a bunch of correlations, but have no way to tell how the correlated factors are connected or whether the correlations are even meaningful/significant. While the "later" correlations could be interesting, I'll remain skeptical until some more concrete proof surfaces.
You just want to say I am a loser, don't you ?
Fine by me, fuck you.
Science makes no value judgements, only validation or falsification of hypotheses, but yes, yes you are. M'm-hey.
please tell her to stop blinding me with you.
Oh screw you Science.
Take that, abstinence!
I think it's more of the fact that people who wait longer are, in fact, crazy. Myself, I'm like asexual or something. Plus, I'm crazy. The perfect formula for becoming a crazy old cat lady...
I wonder if all the built up hormones from not having sex can be damaging...I mean I know it can obviously make you go crazy and amourous...but perhaps build up hormones could cause brain damage or other damages. As animals, human beings aren't supposed to hold off on sex because of religious beliefs or cultural reasonings. Our bodies do say "Hey that's an attractive mate right there, I need to see if she's good genetic material". Of course, then comes the personality and character test to see what kind of person you/they are. If you're lucky you might get yourself a date, with the ulterior motive of testing you before they sleep with you.
Win. So. Hard.
I find it amusing that everyone is focusing on how the research says that people who wait might have problems, while ignoring that people who start younger have a much higher likelyhood of STD's and other problems.
Well, that's the 'no shit sherlock' part. I'm assuming we all know what the S in STD stands for.
You are less likely to catch the crotch crickets if you've never let anyone touch it.
Again, science fails us. Burn them, they be witches!!!!
Seriously, this is just a complete load. A lot of these studies stem from the fact that these so-called 'scientists' simply need to produce something or they lose their grant (IMO).
Science is just jealous, 'cause it hasn't lost it yet.
Not really. I think it was raped by religion.. or the other way around. Who knows.
Yeah, I think they had occasional threesomes with politics as well…
