Okay. Well. I'm sorta an only child, but before my Dad was married to my Mom he was married to this other woman and had a daughter...well, that's how I have a half sister. Well, duh.

Anyways, Adele (her name is Adele, it's better for me to call her by her name than just "my half sister", isn't it?), is 22, just graduated from college, and is living with us for a while while she's looking for a job on the east coast and until she finds a place of her own. But, my problem is that she is a complete sex maniac. I'm not kidding. Just this summer, I've caught her about 12 times, with several different guys.

And I sort of suspect she isn't using protection. I've sort of looked around for condom boxes and such, and can't find anything. I know that it's kind of wrong for me to even be looking, but I care about her a lot, and don't want her to end up with an STD or pregnant.

I'm not saying that her having sex with multiple partners is bad...it's just that I suspect she's not using protection, which really really bothers me because I care about her a lot.

Like I said, I'm not *positive* that she's not being safe, but I really suspect it. Should I approach her about it? Should I just leave it be? Or am I just being to concerned and acting like my Mom? I'm kinda confused....

you aren't acting like your mom...you are just caring for the girl. SHE'S LUCKY TO HAVE YOU AROUND!! i mean you noticed what she was doing and you wanna make sure she's ok. me only suggestion is to ask her. that's the only way you'll know. tell her you care a lot for her as if she were a whole sister and you were just wondering if she was being safe.
my sis is only my half sis, but i had a pregnancy scare once and took a test. i left the test in my drawer. my sis looking for a shirt found the test. she asked about it and asked if i was protected. she told me she was going to take me to get birth control (she's 29) even if i was protected...extra protection you know?
ever since then i've been closer to my sis. i'm glad she's looking out for me. hopefully your sis will feel the same.
GOOD LUCK

Good for you girl!

Is it wrong for you to do these things?! Hell no! You are being an awesome half sister! If the whole "lots of different guys" thing bothers you, then I would go for it, and talk to her.

WoRD!

I would be less worried about her having multiple partners than I would about her not using protection. And yes, I'd definitely say something. Just make sure you phrase it so she knows you're not being judgmental, you're worried about her health because you care about her. Even so, if she's at all unsure about her own action she may just assume you're thinking she's a slut or something, and if that happens you'll have to reassure her that you think she's great and her sexual choices are her own affair, but you want her to be safe and around for a long time because you love her.
