It would depend on the kids involved.

When I was that age (well, all throughout my teen years), I had two male friends who were allowed to spend the night, and they were also allowed to sleep in my room. Nothing ever happened.

My mom wasn't stupid. She knew who I liked and who I "liked", KWIM? Those boys in the second catagory wouldn't have even been allowed in my room.

My boys (ages 13 and 11) have co-ed sleepovers and go to co-ed sleepovers all the time and we have no problem with it.

Well, thinking back to my own hormone-riddled teen years, I can't see that a co-ed sleep-over (which was never presented to me) would have ever been an event I considered an opportunity for sexual relations. Let's see:

- other young people present, beyond me and my intended
- parents home

Hmmm. . . there were plenty of other opportunities that presented much, much lower risk of getting caught. . . and I was such a good girl I think I'll be entirely naive to my own daughters' escapades!

Six kids, sixth sense, six degrees of separation. . . from sanity!
Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".

I'm goin with no problem and lots of supervision ie hey hows it going? boys on the floor girls in the bed.....
I think "exploration" happens on lunch hour at school...when you get off the bus...in the parking lot at the store/mall/theater...wow lots of places.
But at a sleepover? Where there are adults? No way.
Just a lovely opportunity to get to know the kids who are hanging out with my kid...

maybe I was a super bad girl when I was young, but my BF and I did the deed with his parents in the next room. (13-14 yo)

I'd vote NO on the co-ed sleepover

I had co-ed sleep overs in high school and nothing ever happened. In fact, we had some co-ed "lock ins" at church. Nothing ever happened there, either.

As the Mom of 2 boys basically 13 and 17 and the step mum of a girl 13 I would say NO. We dont eve allow the boys to have sleepovers anymore when ther step sister is here.

Co Ed sleep overs just arent worth the risk.

However DS17 has a female friend that is more than welcome to stay here anytime Ive know her since she was less than a year and actually lived with us for a couple of years as a toddler.
