How do you know when it is ok to say yes to sex in a new relationship? I have heard so many “rules” about this topic and I can’t say which rules are good ones. I have heard the three date rule, that you should never have sex before the third date. Then there is the “I know after five minutes whether we will have sex the first night” rule. So when is it right? With so many young adults having sex just for entertainment it is hard to say. I think it depends on the age group. 18-25 year olds have sex so often the very first night they meet. The 30-40 year olds are a little more conservative and tend to date at least a few times before they engage in sex. But statistics show that the 40-55 age group tends to have sex very quickly, even after the first or second date. Many people in this group are coming off divorces and have not had sex in a real long time. They meet and screen potential partners on dating sites first and talk and text before they first meet. By the time they meet they know what they want and expect and many times that leads right to sex. What do you think? When is it ok to start having sex with a new partner?
