Do teen boys call it "making love?"  "Having sex?"  "Doing it?"  If they truely care about the girl, what would they call it?  Thoughts?   :eh2

Ummm... I'm not sure we can print what teens call it here. And I think what he calls it depends more on who is talking to than how he feels about the girl.

I've heard some of my teen daughter's male friends refer to it as "you know" as in "It was weird after they ...you know."

Mostly though I heard "have sex" as in "We've been dating a while, so I think we should have sex now." (That one was a literal recounting of a conversation between teen boy & his then-girlfriend.)

I've also heard "gave it up."

Strangely, I haven't heard it called the most vulgar things my male friends used to call it.  Perhaps my daughter just has more polite friends than I did ;)

I've used "having sex" and also "hooking up" when it was obvious by the circumstances that the character meant sex rather than dating.
