Well.... I'm not sure if my friend is being very responsible..... She's 14 and wants to have sex in the stairway AT SCHOOL with a boy she just met with only a condom to protect her from pregnancy. I know condoms prevent STDs abd STIs, but I know they're realisticly only about 85% effective in preventing pregnancy. She's not on the pill and I told her that using just a condom isn't a foolproof method of birth control, but she doesn't agree with me.

Okay, the condom part sounds fine to me, though being on the Pill would help too. As for the location, though . . .that sounds reasonably crazy, or at least not a great idea. It's got the potential to be really embarassing (the last thing I'd want during sex would be to have someone walk in, one person's bad enough, but a whole school of possible onlookers? Not good!), definitely uncomfortable (tiles are made for walking on, not having sex on, too cold and hard), and kind of well, illegal. Having sex at fourteen anywhere in the States isn't legal, having sex in public isn't either, and having sex in a school where there are lots of people nearby seems like a really good way to get caught. I'd say she needs to wait until she's got an appropriate place to have sex, at very least.

I'd say, when you know she's planning on doing it, just follow her around school all day. She probably won't be much in the mood with you on her tail! Haha.

But seriously... That doesn't sound very romantic. I guess you could be sure she knows about emergency contriception, in case the condom breaks.

yeah, I should make sure she knows about emergency contraception. I seem to be the most informed of my friends about birth control, and when I try to get them to believe me about the doubling-up-on-bc-methods thing I tell them to go to Scarleteen.com, but they think this is like a porno site. I wish people could be more informed without getting offended......

sacred cat, why not print out the articles for your friends and slip them in their lockers. or if they're hanging out at your place, all of you huddle aound the computer while you point your browser to ST.
