So, here’s my thoughts on maturity and sexuality. Anyone who has let their children grow up to be teenagers, let me know if I’m in the right ballpark here.

When kids are little, they don’t understand sex and it is a non-issue to them.
As pre-teens, they know it’s something icky and don’t want to get involved, hiding their eyes during kissing scenes on TV and such.
As pubescents and throughout high school, sex is something they know is supposed to be the biggest deal in the world, but it’s all supposed to be secret knowledge. Anyone trying to be less than 100% reverent of all things regarding nudity and sexuality is automatically icky. Reverting back to being eight years old.
Between (varies by person) 17 and 24, sex is a great toy and one yearns for quantity and variety over quality. Relationships are secondary to physicality.
Around 25 or 30 (some of my friends ain’t there yet), human behavior is realized to be much greater than one particular facet, and then truly adult attitudes form about things in life, to include but not limited to sex and nudity etc.

So, how’s that? Seems to match my observations of people through life, and just a little inspired by the children populating the adult sections of LJ this week…
