I wasn’t taught tools (or if I was, I didn’t hear them) of how to navigate that as an adult.When I lost my virginity in a blackout my sophomore year of college to someone that I didn’t actually know, it sent me on a long journey of discovering how boundaries actually set me free to date and help me to stay true to myself.It’s important that you feel ready and confident in your decisions about having sex.Even if you are in a healthy relationship and would like to have sex with your partner, some beliefs or expectations might make this decision more complicated.In a healthy relationship, both partners are able to express their feelings and respect each other’s boundaries about sex.You shouldn’t have to have sex to keep your partner.
Why commit to one guy when there might be a better one - someone smarter, more successful, better-dressed - just around the corner?
owever, a new study has found that young Americans - predominantly those born in the early 1990s - are having much less sex than previous generations did when they were in their 20s.
Apparently, 15 percent of 20- to 24-year-old Americans haven’t done the deed since the age of 18, compared to only six percent of Generation X-ers when they were the same age.
After losing my virginity, I hoped the next man I would have sex with would be my husband.
But I have since dated men who pressured me so much that I have given in (which by the way, led quickly to the end of that relationship).
I grew up believing that I would wait to have sex until I was married.
