Feeling pressured to have sex? Listen to your own voice, only you know when you are ready.

Feeling pressured to have sex? Listen to your own voice, only you know when you are ready.

Despite what you think, not everyone is having sex. If you feel like you aren’t ready, good for you that you are able to recognize that!

Here at Teensource, we know that the peer pressure to have sex can be overwhelming. It’s important to say “no” and mean “no” if that’s how you feel.  You should never feel obligated or coerced to have sex.  If you’re struggling with what to do or how you’re feeling, talk to a supportive friend, a parent, or call the California Youth Crisis Line, which is a toll free 24-hour confidential hotline staffed by understanding volunteers.
