You are right that we do get quite a lot of concerned questions from young people about sex - but that is what this site is here for. People can post any concern they may have and I will do my best to assist as well as comments from other young people.
The reality is that not everyone does have access to sex education and sometimes they do not know how to get that information. It is true that people do have sex before they have the sex education, but this is not a perfect world and people do make mistakes. If all we do is condemn people for making mistakes without helping them, the situation is going to get a hell of a lot worse than it already is.
You may well feel prepared for what life may throw at you, and that is great - but its not the same for everyone. Also the adolescent experience varies a lot for people and some more than others have a very difficult time at this stage of their lives. It is also not always the case that girls fall into guys traps as you put it, and it can often be the other way around - contrary to what a lot of people believe adolescence is equally challenging for both sexes.
One of the biggest problems teenagers experience is not feeling heard or understood by adults and peers - this forum is a place for that You have been heard, but so will those who need advice about sex and pregnancy.
