Re: How Far Do You Think Ron and Lavender Went?

I highly doubt that they got as far as to the "third base". I mean, boys couldn't enter the girls' dormitories and if they'd done it in the boys dormitories, I'm pretty sure Harry would've walked in on them at some point. Also, the HP characters just seem more innocent than muggle teens, it's hard to imagine them having carnal desires.
Also, with Filch and Peeves roaming around the castle, it's hard to imagine any of the students feeling comfortable enough to "get intimate" inside the castle.
But then again, there's always the room of requirement, I suppose...

^ This. For some reason, I can't really see Ron and Lavender going any further than some pretty full-on 'snogging.' The Hogwarts teenagers seem relatively innocent when it comes to sexual experience.

Because they have less porn than Muggles? Do they even have TV?

Based on what? Aside from Harry we don't get a look in at any relationships or the social lives of any Hogwarts students.

I'd say second base, Ron thrown out trying to steal third once.

By the way, for countries that follow other sports more than baseball, what analogies do you use instead of the bases?

We didn't have any analogies, not in our school anyway. We'd just have to say it how it was.

I'm only like 75% confident I know what the "bases" are. I'd be lost if I moved to the US.

They did it. Did Harry and Ginny (before end of Hallows)? I say yes because Ron said something about Ginny knowing about Harry's body, can't remember exactly. :ginny: :harry: :lol:

Ginny said that Harry has a tattoo on his chest, which Ron has proved wrong when he disguised himself as Harry using Polyjuice Potion.

Re: How Far Do You Think Ron and Lavender Went?

We cannot prove for sure what happened. However I am certain they did not go further than say second base for many reasons.
1) Like others said students at Hogwarts are really conservative sexually compared to real world teenagers, and the Trio in particularly are even less likely to get involved in those things than the average teenager at Hogwarts.
2) The book only said Lavender wants to kiss Ron continually and Ron admitted they were mostly snogging. If they had sex Ron would definitely show more signs of embarrassment than what happened.
3) Ron showed signs he was getting bored and annoyed with Lavender after Christmas and he is not the type of person to have sex with a girl he was getting bored with. Before Christmas he would not want to go that fast as he is a teenage boy who gets freaked out when things goes too fast physically. Sex for an inexperienced teenage boy is really scary.
4) Like others have said, it’s almost impossible to have any privacy for an extended period of time to do the deed anywhere in the castle
5) The Weasley family are pretty conservative and Ron seems to be have adopted that mentality as well as evidenced by his concern for his sister’s reputation and his belief in his mother’s idea of scarlet woman.
Also HP4Life made some excellent points as well btw.
DanPot, even if Harry and Ginny saw each other relatively naked it does not mean they necessarily had sex.
Personally if the fanfiction I am reading claim that Ron had sex with Lavender or Hermione with Viktor I will stop reading right there because it is just OOC for me.
As for Ron and Hermione’s age when they had their first child, I always imagined they did marry pretty young (around 20 years old) as is the norm in wizarding world but they didn’t have children for a long time because they want to focus on their career instead. Alternatively it could be that Hermione’s body was damaged by her toture in Malfoy Manor meaning she couldn’t become pregnant or had a miscarriage. Both reasons are possible as well.
