According to the survey by teen magazine Sugar, nearly a third of the respondents said they lied to classmates about their sex lives while the same number say friends make them feel they should "go further" with boys.

The study showed that almost 87 per cent of girls between 12 and 18 think their friends or classmates have had sex, reports the Daily Express.

However, only 12 per cent of 985 respondents said they'd gone all the way.

Sugar writer Kate Quail said the "big sex myths" are confusing teenagers, "pressuring them into going further than they feel comfortable with",

"It's a vicious circle. Girls often feel they have to lie to keep up with their friends," Quail added.

I THINK THAT'S NOT TRUE BECAUSE IF THE PERSON KNOWS THEY HAVEN'T HAD SEX BEFORE THEN THEY SHOULDN'T EVEN LIE ABOUT IT BECAUSE EVEN IF YOUR BEHIND ITS NOT GOOD TO MAKE SOMETHING UP THAT'S NOT TRUE ALSO BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU LOOK DUMB.

Do not do this,if your mind says it is right to do sex for this person and safe to do, then do, but my personal advice is that only do sex after marriage and proper age with proper health investigation and also have social activity with partner, because sexual relationship is not only physical pleasure, but also effects you on a MENTAL LEVEL.
