Hello, everyone! I just wanted to say my absolute thanks to everyone who makes this site what it is. I found this site at 13, when I was curious about the changes in my life. At 14, when I embarked on my first relationship, it gave me a lot of support. Now at 15, it had a ton of information on how to be safe and more. I lost my virginity to my first boyfriend yesterday, and thanks to this website, we knew good condom brands, how to use one, and how to remove it. We checked for holes (even though he didn't ejaculate- I wanted to be better safe than sorry) by filling it up w/ water (another thing I learned here!) and nope, no holes.

It was a romantic and tender moment, if a little uncomfortable [Razz] I know there's many teenagers out there like me who are making smart decisions about sex, and a lot of it is due to this website. I want to thank the wonderful people behind it for giving the world what it needs- a smart, truthful website about our bodies and sexuality. [Big Grin]
