Friend wants to have sex (I am 14)
Posted on: 07/06/2011
Well, my friend who is not my boyfriend has been wanting to have sex with me. I tell him that I am scared, but he says it doesn't hurt. What if he uses a condom? What if I get birth control? Does it hurt?
Well first sex usually hurts and yes, you MUST use a condom and birth control to protect yourself, but what is the hurry? You did not mention that it will benefit you in any way, in fact, you say you are frightened, so if he actually is your friend--he should stop all pressure immediately!
