First Time Sex/Virginity
Posted on: 01/03/2007
Hi, I'm 15 and I'm confused if I should have sex. I love my boyfriend, and I have no problems with my body...as in I want to do it... but I'm afraid of my mom, and I think it's a little to early, even tough I really want to do it.
It is too early and be very afraid of your mom! You seem to know it is too early, so please listen to yourself! The younger you start having sex, the more likely you will get pregnant (when you do not want to) and a sexually transmitted infection!
I know it sounds like a cliché, but if he loves you, he will respect your choice to wait!
