Reasons to wait for sex

 

  1. religious beliefs (wait until marriage)
  2. concerns about reputation (being seen as “easy” or a tramp)
  3. possibility of pregnancy
  4. possibility of disease
  5. lack of trust in your partner
  6. personal belief in abstinence (not having sex)
  7. just waiting for the right guy/girl
  8. lack of trust in the future of relationship
  9. you just don’t feel ready
All of these are perfectly good reasons to wait.

Remember- it’s OK to wait as long as you want before having sex. The decision is yours to make, and it’s going to be yours to live with, so make sure it’s the right decision.

Sex is a personal issue. It’s something that you should discuss with your partner, yourself and maybe your doctor, but you don’t have to discuss it with the rest of the world. It’s your choice, and that’s all that matters.

And don’t worry about what everyone else is doing - independence is a sign of maturity…having sex is not.
