Young Adult books do not seem to have a clear cut line of how much is too much in terms of sexual acts. What is the most "sexual" characters should get in a YA book? (Target audience-teens and early 20's)

After sexual tension builds up intercourse is fine, but don't have the entire book filled with it.
