Probability Assessment

Which do you think is more likely:

a sixteen-year-old lying to his mother-figure saying that he hasn't had sex
or
a sixteen-year-old lying to his fourteen-year-old brother saying he has had sex?

And no, I don't think that the fourteen-year-old is lying, and I highly doubt that the fourteen-year-old is confused. There is also no confusion based upon the period of time or partner.

    He's totally lying to you LOL. He's probably exaggerating details to the bro, most kids too, but telling a parent-figure he hasn't, nahhh.

  3. Easy way to tell. Bring it up again and if he denies it again, give a big "whew" and tell him that you know how important martial arts are to him and that sex has been known to sap a man's chi and make him less competitive in MMA.

    If he goes pale and asks if that's true, you'll have your answer.

  4. That last message was brought to you by the Gen. Jack Ripper School of Sex Ed. P.O.E, O.P.E. Don't let them have your fluids!

  5. Sorry to say that I think he is probably lying to you. My brother is 17 and fessed up that he was having sex to Hubby but lied to mom that he wasn't. No kid wants to tell their mom they are having sex. :)

  7. Could be either really... depending on how much his "older and cooler than you" image matters to him regarding the 14 year old.
