Let’s talk about sex!
We’re just gonna dive straight in here and prepare you for this video about SEX. Sex sex sex sex sex sex sex sex. SEX. Louise (the one and only Sprinkle of Glitter) has made a video talking about sex and answering all sorts of questions. The main thing being that sex shouldn’t be an #awkwardconversation because it’s a completely natural thing. So talk about it!
Ask questions in safe spaces online and in real life and make sure you know all you can know before you make your decision about when to have sex for the first time. Everyone is different! So only you can know when it’s right for you, and please try and think past the peer pressure to have sex that we know is out there. Your friends probably aren’t having as much sex as you think – and it doesn’t matter if they are anyway! It’s about you – no-one else. So listen to your instinct and follow yourself.
Finally – OMG please use contraception. You don’t want to get pregnant and you don’t want STIs. Like, literally, you don’t want these things. So make sure you know about the different types of contraception out there – for all genders – and choose the right one for you. But most importantly talk about sex. The more you talk, the more comfortable it gets. And you wanna be comfy for this sort of thing 😉
