The books are about many children that are in a school together all the time, but it never mentions sex at all.

Although it’s not unusual for sex to be left out of adolescent, or children’s books, the fact that Harry Potter grew up through the different books, makes it even more strange.

Sex would somehow ruin their purity, even though crushes, attractions, and ultimately sex, are a part of life, and sometimes a part of adolescence. Although sex may have also ruined the likability of the Harry Potter books, it would’ve made it more realistic.
