I just turned 13 yesterday, and I met this really hot guy (he's 14-15) at the skating rink a couple of weeks back. It's turning into something more, and even though we haven't kissed or anything yet, I'm pretty sure after a while, he'll want sex. I know, I know, I'm a worrywart, but it's happened with my past boyfriends, and I'm not sure that I'm ready. I want to experience it though, and if it's with him, be it. Is there someplace that I can go to buy condoms, etc. without being embarressed, or comments made about my age? And without a credit card?

No place that sells condoms should ever make you feel embarased, or bug you about your age, but I don't think that's the main issue here. Sex should never be something you do to please someone else -- it's something you do when *you* and your partner both feel your mature enough to handle, and both want to do. At this point, you sound uncertain, and you're most definitely below the age of consent everywhere I'm aware of, which means if you do have sex, and someone who disapproves finds out, your boyfriend could be facing criminal charges. And having a sex crime on his record isn't going to help him any in the future. Having sex before you're ready could also subject you to a lot of worry and heartbreak, too. We've got a readiness checklist that might be of some help to you, but the vibe I'm getting from you really isn't one of being ready for this. http://www.scarleteen.com/sexuality/readiness.html
