Does it seem like everyone around you is having sex? Guess what? They’re not! Half of all teens have not had intercourse (Center for Disease Control). It’s okay to say no!
There are many great reasons to wait:
- You are 100% protected against STI/STD
- There is 0% chance you will get pregnant
- You may not feel ready for all the emotions that go along with having sex. That’s okay. It’s your body and your feelings.
