Do Girls Who Have Sex At 14 Turn Into Panty-Flashing Train Wrecks?

The new issue of Us Weekly reports that Britney Spears's whole vestal virgin thing in the mid-90s was a huge lie, and that she didn't lose her V-card to Justin Timberlake as she previously asserted. According to the celeb weekly, Brit gave it up when she was 14 to then-boyfriend Reg Jones and judging from what's up on the magazine's website, it seems like Us editors are framing Britney's early deflowering as part of the reason for her current mental instability. But don't her batshit antics have a lot more to do with glaring lens of fame, the paparazzi pressure, and possible postpartum depression?



Sure, 14 is a little on the young side — and we have no idea what the experience of losing her virginity was like for Britney — but it is possible that someone without a driver's license can have a fulfilling and healthy intimate experience. Plus, as some will recall, a a recent study suggests that teens who have sex earlier are less likely to be delinquents. Would Britney really have been better off had she waited?
