There are lots of things to think about before you have sex – emotional, practical and social. You should discuss all these issues with your partner before you have sex. If you can’t discuss them, that is probably a sign that you are not in a happy relationship and should not be having sex with that partner. Remember that you can have a happy relationship without sex, and if you are in an unhappy relationship then sex will not be the answer.
Look after yourself and be responsible; you are in charge of your body and your life.
