Why is people in the new society have sex before marriage? Why do people start having sex at such a young age? This boggles my mind, because people will call themselves religious while they still having sex before marriage which is a huge sin.

Well there are a lot of sins, really... I mean, wearing mixed fibers, eating certain foods, knowing certain people, being certain people. I think that society has realized that religion doesn't dictate our world, or at least it shouldn't. So here in America at least we try our best to keep religion out of our policies.
No sex before marriage is a religious thing, not a basic moral thing. I know wonderful people, the best people in the world, who have sex all the time and they're not married. I also know sexually active ass holes. I know virgins who are kind and caring and just the nicest most wonderful people. And I know some that are bitches. Sex doesn't determine what you're personality is or whether or not you're a good person.
I'm sexually active but I do at least 10 hours of community service every week, I'm a special education teacher, I've been in Americorps, I donate blood every three months, I donate my time, money and possessions to people and things that need them more than I do. I'm also happy and kind and loving and caring and positive and a good influence for my friends and I encourage them to be their best. My sexual choices have nothing to do with morality.
However I do think that Hollywood is f***ing things up (no pun intended). The way they regulate sex and the way they require it to be portrayed makes women and men alike feel worthless. It makes sex seem wrong, it encourages people to be ashamed and it makes women feel like they shouldn't have any pleasure, like it's wrong, or like they need to meet some kind of stupid ideal. It makes men feel like they'll never be good looking enough, give enough pleasure, provide enough love, be a good lover or person, never meet the ideal.
I don't think that banning sex entirely will eradicate this problem, I think bringing it out into the open and having full, comprehensive discussions and education and encouraging a more open attitude about it all would allow us to be safe, healthier, less ashamed and better informed and let us continue to grow as a society and become better as a people.1
