Dating sex and relationships
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.
It can be uncomfortable being completely open when it comes to talking about sex, even with a girlfriend or boyfriend.
A relationship will be stronger and more real when both people can truly be themselves both inside and outside of the bedroom.
When we question these “rules,” we respect our partner for who they are instead of who they “should be.” Sexual abuse is any type of unwanted sexual contact.
This can be a very serious and dangerous form of abuse.
