Based on my life experience and watching others, 28. That seemed to be when most people I knew stopped regretting their decisions.

I had to say others because it depends on several things, in the first place the situation and in the second place what the mental age of young adults is in situations like crime or legal issues (loans, gambling, jobs, etc.)

I clicked on 'the ones under 21 should be coınsidered child' and 'they need both emotional and physical maturity to have sex'. I had thought that the brain stopped developing when a person turned twenty-one, but there is conflicting data so far presented in this thread. My train of thought remains though. And I most certainly hold the belief that people need to have 'emotional and physical maturity' before doing the deed. Teenage pregnancy is a really, really ****ed-up problem. "Teenage fathers" is like, "WTF!?!?" Sure, some people make it, but look at the overwhelming majority of people that pop out kids really early in their lives. 'Success story' is not a part of their equation. And since sex often leads to babies, we need to have more responsible people doing one of the funnest pass times humans have learned to enjoy. There might just be a correlation between that and responsible parenting.
I guess people shouldn't engage in sex unless they can legitimately face the consequences of their dual actions. No bull**** excuses, it's either you can or can't. And I think if you can't, playing solo is probably a better option for you and everyone else involved.
I think it really depends on individual differences so i clicked that one.
What one would consider an adult, another will not and so on and so forth.
Medical science has proven that the brain is not fully developed until age 24. Divorce statistics have proven that people who marry before age 24 are more likely to divorce and more likely to be victims of spousal abuse. Department of Human Services statistics have proven that children born to parents under the age of 24 are less likely to graduate from high school. Medical statistics have proven that pregnant women under the age of 24 are more likely to have miscarriages, deformed babies and premature births. Family planning Statistics have proven that people under the age of 24 are less consistent in remembering to use contraception such as condoms and birth control pills. . Medical statistics have proven that women who use an epidural, a contraceptive implant or birth control pills before the age of 24 are more likely to get cancer. Death statistics have proven that women under the age of 24 who use an abortion pill, are more likely to die of a stroke, and that women who have an abortion under the age of 24 are more likely to commit suicide. . So, marriage, babies, abortions and contraceptives, are all bad for people under the age of 24. Therefore, sex is bad for people under the age of 24. As to when a person should be considered capable of knowing offhand whether they want to have sex, well about 8 years old. As to when a person stops being excessively vulnerable to being bullied, coerced, deceived, manipulated into having sex they don't want, well about 24 years old.
