Scientists have found benefits in the early onset of sexual activity

Experts often say that early onset of sexual activity poses a risk to sexual health. At

this has many negative consequences,ranging from unplanned pregnancy and STDs to sexual assault. However, scientists still found some advantage from an early sexual debut.


The researchers found that people whohad their first sexual experience at an earlier age were more likely to have healthy sexual relationships later in life. Those who delayed the experience were more likely to experience sexual difficulties in the future.

Scientists, however, noted that the word “early” is defined differently by everyone: for someone it means “before marriage”, for someone “until adulthood”. There is no consensus.
