Sure people should be careful of what they're doing when it comes to sex, but that goes for any age. I'm not a fan of the peer pressure that's present among teens for doing it (they make it seems weird if you haven't had sex before a certain age), but if both parties are comfortable with it I see no problems. Also from my understanding, having an abortion isn't a walk in the park, so having multiple ones is something girls will probably want to avoid anyway (not just for status reasons as you make it seem). Problematic things concerning sex in the real world for me are probably found problematic by most people. Large age differences between the partners, especially when one is still underage isn't something I'm in favor of and using any method to force your partner into having sex (mental or physical) is unacceptable to me. When it comes to porn, I'm pretty much fine with them doing anything (although I might not like a lot of it), as long as all involved parties are consenting adults.
Condoms only work 70% of the time, after all.

Often psychological evaluations are done to make sure the woman having the abortion is comfortable with it. It happens very often that women change their mind and want to keep the child minutes before the actual procedure was about to take place. There are various phyisical and psycological risks involved in abortions. I can tell you horror stories of women attempting suicide because they terminated a pregnancy that they actually wanted because of (perceived) pressure from family or friends. Some women have trouble dealing with the stigma that their religious community or public society attaches to it, increasing stress levels which could potentially leading to alcohol/drug abuse. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder have been observed as a result of abortion. Other women might feel sexually inadequate or insecure because of the procedure. The mere thought of "A child is attempting to form inside of me" is enough for many women to not have an abortion. In case of surgical abortion, the procedure will in many cases be uncomfortable or creepy. After all, a doctor is going to stare into your crotch and basically probe your womb with a speculum and a vacurette. When I see teenagers who have had 5 abortions done and get pregnant again, it's usually a problem that's either rooted in bad parenting, bad education or domestic abuse. Abortion is a very difficult personal choice to make and you'll rarely see any woman in her right mind take it lightly.

I think that if you're going to have sex in the real world, you need to be willing and able to take the responsibility for whatever happens. Have a job first, be at least old enough to understand what you're doing is risky, like at least 17 yrs old. 15 is okay, but pushing it. Anything younger then that and it's disgusting. I know that the universal legal age of consent is about 18, but let's face it, a lot of people nowadays get laid by about 15 anyway. I'm not saying you should do it when you're younger then 18, just that happens. If a kid does do it before 18, I'll be somewhat okay with it if they're responsible and respectful about it and not just all "lol i got laid im just so fuckin epic now"
"giantkrill" said ...And that's pretty much impossible. When puberty sets in around the age of 11 or 12, they are slowly starting to learn about these things. It's when they start to form their personality. Casting off the blissful ignorance of childhood and start to slowly understand who they are. Peer pressure becomes more important, they want to prove that they are reaching maturity. But the problem is that you can't expect a child playing GTA to fully comprehend what every aspect of sex is overnight. It's because their brains and bodies don't change overnight either. If only puberty lasted like 8 hours. Yeah, that'd be some world. It is important however, that during puberty, they have someone who guides them through it. They need someone to put it into context for them. The science behind reproduction is taught in school, the moral context can only be taught by the parents. The moral context doesn't end at the 30 minute talk about what love is and how they should deal with it. It also extends to the kind of content they immerse themselves in. You let your 13 year old play GTAV? At least provide some kind of context for the horrible things the characters in those games do. Certain forms of media (explicit music, tv, games or pornography) can negatively influence your children and instill unrealistic expectations of sex or violence. Especially if you just "let them play that Xbox thing" or don't keep track of what your kids do online. They need to be able to discern the fictional worlds from the real world and as a parent you need to draw out that line for them. Lazy parenting is in my opinion the cause of many of the problems you outlined, but unfortunately it is their constitutional right to raise their kids as they see fit. You may not approve of it, but they are free to do as they wish within the bounds of the law. This is a really broad topic though, so this is as far as I'll probably go.
Personally, I absolutely cannot stand it when little kids get excited about sex. I just find it absolutely infuriating when I see some 10-year-old squeaker talk like he's a big time pimp or something. Like those kids who play GTAV multiplayer and flirt with the virtual strippers. That's just some kind of low. I know we can't control others, but fucking damn it, it just pisses me the hell off. (Also the fact that a little kid is even playing GTAV when it's an M rated game pisses me off to begin with, but that in and of itself is another topic) I just think you should wait until you're at an age where you can fully understand, comprehend, and respect sex to talk about it casually.
