“The first time you have sex, you need to make sure you are prepared, mentally and physically. Your reasons for having sex must be something other than "I want him to like me more" or "He says I have to or he'll dump me". Guys who pressure girls into sex are nothing but jerks. They aren't worth your time (or energy!) so don't give in to them if they use some phony lines on you.”
