Ask Yourself

  • Is sex something you really want to have? Are you feeling under pressure due to peer group or your partner? This is a must-answer question for yourself and you must be deeply honest about it.
  • If you’re not entirely sure if you are ready or not, try talking to a friend, an elder you trust in, a counsellor you prefer. Being 100% ready is important. It’s also absolutely normal if you are confused. It happens to all of us. Talk to someone you trust, and someone who won’t judge you.

Getting Ready for It
