Worried you might be pregnant? Evaluate your risk, find out what steps you may need to take next, check in with your feelings and by all means, breathe. We're here to walk you through it.
It's obviously important if you're here for information that you know what we mean when we talk about sex, so we thought we'd make it clear.
Have a peek at S.E.X., the in-depth and inclusive young adult sexuality guide by Scarleteen founder Heather Corinna, newly updated for 2016!
Thinking about partnered sex? Do yourself a favor and look through our checklist to get a good idea about the readiness of you and your partner -- it's more complicated and demanding than many people think, and knowing what you need to get ready can help assure that your sexual experiences with a partner will be as great for both of you as possible.
If variety is the spice of life, disability is the nutmeg of the bedroom.
Here at Scarleteen, we love consent — but what about when your disability changes the way you interact with conversations about sex and autonomy?
Being disabled doesn't cut you out of the kink scene — but sometimes you need to take some special precautions.
Some people say they're "sexually attracted to disability." That's objectifying, and you deserve to be loved as a whole person.
So, you've got an STI. How do you tell current or potential partners?
