Are you Ready for Sex?

 

Don’t believe everything you hear!  Not every one is having sex, about two thirds of young people wait until they are over 16.  Many young people regret their first sexual experience because they are not ready.

 

Ask yourself these questions:

 

• Do we trust and respect each other?

• Do they like me for who I am?

• Do we both know what we want and what we don’t want?

• Have we planned how to keep safe using condoms and contraception?

 

If you have answered NO to any of these questions, you need to ask yourself if you are really ready.

 

You should never feel under any pressure to have sex.

 

Sex isn’t the only part of a relationship, and there are other ways of enjoying each other’s company besides having sex.

 

Talk about what you want and what you don’t want to do. You can do other things that you both like, such as going to the cinema and listening to music.

 

You're the only one who can, and should, decide if you are ready for sex.

 

And girls remember – it’s not just up to boys to use condoms.  You should carry and know how to use them too!
