Deciding when to have sex

deciding when to have sex

“There are many reasons why young people have sex – not just love or desire. Some feel pressured or forced to have sex. Others do it for money, power or to fit in with a group. Some young people want to wait until they’re older or married before they have sex. In a loving relationship with someone we trust, sex can be a wonderful way to express how we feel. But many young people have sex without thinking carefully about what it could lead to. And the consequences could be unwanted pregnancy and/or a sexually transmitted infection (STI), like HIV. That’s why it’s important to decide if you want to have sex with someone.”
