What is the average age that girls are having their first sexual intercourse?

The average age when people (girls and guys) start having intercourse is about 17. Only about half of high school students have ever had intercourse, and even once they start having it, most teens don’t have it frequently.

Choosing to have sex is a big decision. It’s important to wait until you’re ready to have sex.
