Author Topic: Mom and Sex?

So, I'm 15, and I've been with my boyfriend for 2 and a half years. Although right now I don't want to have sex with him, we've discussed it and he's okay with me waiting until I feel ready. The thing is, my mom is the type to say "No sex, until 18" and I really wish she would just change her mind about it because I'm not even allowed to use birth control until I'm 17. A lot of my friends have parents who say that when they know they're ready to have sex, all they have to do is tell their moms and their mother's will give them birth control. I just really feel like my mother's stubborn and won't even listen to my reasoning if I try. Is their any possible way I can change her mind?

HI staycool and welcome to Scarleteen,

What is your relationship like with your Mom in general? Are the two of you able to talk about things easily?

What about around sex? has your mom shared with you why she doesn't believe you should engage in intercourse until you're eighteen?
