This is my second post today, haha! But now that I've found Scarleteen it's like I can finally vent all my relationship problems.
My boyfriend and I have been together for over a year, and this has been a constant problem throughout our relationship: it is so rare that we're ever alone enough to be as intimate as we want to be. We've had sex, but in the 4ish months that we've been "sexually active," we've only had intercourse about 3 times. We make out a lot but the farthest we can ever really go is manual sex. I just don't understand how other couples our age (18) can be having sex all the time. His parents are always home, as are my parents or brother. Back when the weather was warm last spring and summer, we used to hook up in parks a lot after dark but that was before we were actually having sex. Then during the winter we took to hooking up in his car, but we've started getting so paranoid because twice we've had cops come check out the mysterious parked car. So we're really left with no options. You can make out with someone when their parents are in the other room but you certainly can't have sex. We're starting to get sexually frustrated. I don't know if anyone would be able to offer advice, but anything would be helpful, or at least if anyone's in the same situation, it would be nice to know that my boyfriend and I are not the only ones with this problem.

You know, the tough part of being in a house still with your parents is that you may have to come to terms with not being able to have alone time as much/often as you may like. It may be that you have to make do with what you can until you do have a place of your own or he does.
