What does it mean to be ready?
Ok, so we've seen the movies. We know the moves. We've got the boyfriend. It's been over a decade since we learnt the birds and the bees. And everyone's doing it. So we need to start too, right?
Being ready understanding what means. And what the consequences can be. So we don't have problems or regret it afterwards. Because they can be huge.
We're lucky if our first time is simply disappointing. For too many of us it is a painful, embarrassing fumble with someone we hardly know. Leaving us feeling lousy the next day. And worried about pregnancy and STIs. Nothing cool about that.
Plus it's against the law to have if you're under the age of consent (16 in the UK). No matter how ready we feel.
How will I know when I'm ready?
Am I being pressured by what my friends or boyfriend think?
How will I make sure I don't get pregnant?
How will I stop myself getting herpes? Or chlamydia?
Will I regret it next day?
Is he worth the hassle?
You know the answers.
Crossing our fingers and going with the flow is never an option.
