HI marissax,

By sex I'm assuming you mean intercourse, which is one of many sexual activities. I think you've said here that you and your boyfriend already engage in some sexual activities.

We actually have a handy checklist that can help you think about some of the things you'd want to consider. Here it is:

Ready or Not? The Scarleteen Sex Readiness Checklist

How about you take a read of that and come on back if you'd like to discuss any part of it? [Smile]
