Okay, so there's this guy I'm somewhat involved with, who's 18 and a senior at my school. I'm turning 14 in a couple days (I skipped a grade and I'm really mature, mentally and physically, for my age). We're good friends and we're both virgins. We're very open with each other and he's been talking to me more lately about sex, and asking if I'd be his first. I really don't know what to say. I care about him and really want my first time to be special, and I know it would be with him. But it's kind of illegal in this state and I really don't know what to do. Please help:/

I'm also still deciding whether or not I want to lose my virginity this early in life. He and I aren't even dating and I'm not sure whether giving myself to him is worth all of the potential risks - I want to, but I've always over-analyzed things and I'm just not sure.

The age of consent in Texas is 17. So, all other considerations aside, if the two of you engage in sexual activity, it could get him into a lot of legal trouble. For that reason alone, I would advise against sex at this point.

If you still want to think some more about how you can tell whether you are ready for sex, this article may be an interesting read for you:
