    Is sex a choice? Yes.

    Despite your age? Yes (although minors and people who cannot deal with the possible consequences of sex, shouldn't have it).

    Should everyone be able to decide when they "lose" it? Responsible adults, yes (and they can and do). FYI, "loose" means not tight.

    Who they "lose" it with? See above.

    .

     There are various reasons minors shouldn't be having sex, to include:

    1 - Usually not prepared for the emotional ramifications of sex with another person and often have sex for the wrong reasons 

    2 - Almost always unable to afford to pay for medical treatment if a disease should be transmitted or pregnancy should occur (and nobody should need to pay for the results of sex between people, except the people having the sex)

    3 - Almost always unable to support a child, if a child should result from the sex and the girl chooses to have and keep the baby

    4 - The fact that most teens don't practice 'safe sex'

    5 - The fact that most teens would have a hard time dealing with an STD/STI that can't be cured

    6 - The fact that pregnancy is really hard on a woman's body, but moreso on the growing body of a teen

    7 - The fact that opening sex up to "anyone" would set up MANY (more) young boys and girls to be targets of sexual predators

    .

    Those are just a few of the reasons that sex should be limited to responsible, mature adults.

    Sex is definitely a choice. As far as age goes there are laws. Most countries, and each state in the United States has what's called an Age of Consent. This is the age at which a person is considered to be legally competent to consent to sexual acts.

    In the United States Federal law makes it criminal to engage in a sexual act with another person who is between the age of 12 and 16  if they are at least four years younger than you. Each state takes a different approach as the age of consent has ranged from 10 to 18.

    The laws around consent, especially around people older than 18 having sex with people younger than 18, can get pretty confusing when you factor in age of consent. For example consider a 18yr old having sex with a 16yr old in a state where the age of consent is 17. You have a legal adult and a legal minor, but they're both teenagers and only two years apart in age. They may even be attending the same school as sophmore and senior. This is why some states have Romeo & Juliet laws that take age difference into account. Which is also comes into play if Both participants are minors under the age of consent. Otherwise you'd have to charge both parties.

    The more over 18yrs old one of the people is...the more obvious and clear the legality should be.

    In a situation that is *legal* ...it is then up to the people involved. It is their choice.

    The word is LOSE, loose is the opposite of tight.

    It's definitely a choice whether you're 7 or 13 or 25, but matters is your point of maturity and whether or not you know what you're getting yourself into. Young kids often don't know consequences, they can't even watch an R-rated movie. Yes, some are more mature than others and there are some questionable adults whom exist, but it's all about capturing your innocence and learning when to grow up. Most kids know better when they are raised correctly by their parents and constantly monitoring them for the kids benefit like not giving them access to the internet at a young age or expose them to entertainment that they are clearly not supposed to watch and if the kid learns something knew outside of your grasp like from others kids at school, then it's good to teach them. Bottom line, people make choices at any age, but most of the time, they don't know any better to be able to make that choice.
