Love life

First crushes, first kisses, first times… Figuring it all out can be rather confusing. From who to talk with, to what to expect, we’re here to help one another.

So…. there’s never an easy way to start having the most #awkwardconversation possible so we’re just gonna dive right in. Sex. It involves your body parts and it involves feelings and that combination creates the most awkward of cocktails, it’s true. But you know what? It’s a cocktail well worth sipping on (maybe it’s time we dropped this metaphor??) because talking about sex is *voice of authority* a very important conversation to have.

Okay, we’ll be serious for a second. Sex between two consenting, of age people can be a glorious thing – but only when both partners are completely comfortable with the situation. The only way to be truly comfortable is to communicate, and that’s the point Lexx (AKA tyrannosauruslexxx) is making in this video. No-one should feel pressured into having sex, and talking to your partner is the best way to avoid this. You should also try talking to your friends, or a teacher or relative who you trust, as they’ll have your back and will be able to give you some great advice. Chances are they’ve had the same worries before!

So be bold and have that awkward conversation – it’ll be soooooo much easier once you start! Once the chat is flowing you’ll be able to get everything off your mind, become more confident and be able to recognise if you’re being pressured to have sex.
