Re: Was i taken advantage of?

Hi jocelyn. I want to start of by saying that consent is about everyone saying yes, not the absence of a no. In this article , which I'll note is targeted at guys, there is a lot of valuable information about consent. Doing things, like putting his hands down your pants without consent, physically f...

What's your favourite Scarleteen article?

I’ll start. For me, it’s the very first bit of Scarleteen that I ever came into contact with Bi the Dozen: A Bisexuality Quiz . When I came to Scarleteen, I was really terrified and ashamed of my own bisexuality. This article flipped a switch for me. I began to realise that I didn’t have to be asham...

It was Lucy's responsibility to seek out your consent for her acting lovey-lovey, it wasn't your responsibility to stop her. Not feeling &quo...

Hey bitheway, it's actually great that you brought this thread back!

And I love that quote from the author. Too often stories end in tragedy when in truth, we could pen the happy endings we seek just as easily. I'm adding Maurice to my to-be-read list.

Re: Condoms

But even for perfect use, there will be no 100% guarantee of pregnancy. Is that mean even in perfect use people will still get pregnant in 1 year of usage? Yes, that's exactly what that means. However some methods, such as the IUD, can be as effective as 99.9% in perfect use and 99.2% in typical us...

Re: Condoms

Hi Wonga, when a condom gets a rip, tear, or hole, it is very noticeable, just like it is obvious when this happens to a balloon. The typical effectiveness rate for condoms plus withdrawal is 96.2%. This means that for people using these two methods over a year, less than 4 out of 100 will become pr...

Hi KittyPink, I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling this way. I know it may be hard to agree with, when you're feeling otherwise, but not experiencing dysphoria for any period of time means just that, that you're not experiencing it then. It doesn't mean that you don't experience it at other times, ...

Re: Scared to masturbate/don't want to

When you say "does this mean something" can you tell me a bit of what you mean by that?

Certainly, urinating can push anything that is in the urethra out. There is, however, no way to know whether or not that was precum.

Is there a particular direction you'd like to take this conversation?

Re: Scared to masturbate/don't want to

You seem to be having very conflicted feelings about masturbation. It might be easier if we work together to try and figure out why you don't enjoy the concept of masturbation, but also feel out of control. Are there any negative experiences or attitudes in the people around you that could have infl...
