teenagersSo, now sex is like the “in thing” among your peers. Its like the ticket to being among the “matured girls”. And you think it’s the next step to take. If you’ve been wondering about and contemplating sex, well, here are some things you need to know before having sex.

SEX IS NOT….

1. A way to make somebody love you or make a commitment to you.

2. A measure of how mature or grown up you are

3. A good way to get back at your parents or assert your independence

4. Always fun or enjoyable, sometimes you will wonder if it was really worth it

5. Does not help you deal with loneliness

BUT SEX CAN BE…

1. Really awkward

2. Messy and full of strange things, and sometimes embarrassing.

As a teenager, its always best to abstain from sex in order to avoid unwanted pregnancies or STD’s.
