8 Reasons It’s Okay To Wait To Have Sex

I write a lot about sex and hooking up here – I mean, obviously, this is Gurl.com. But I also recognize that while a lot of you are out there having sex and hooking up, there are probably just as many of you who are either waiting to do the deed for religious reasons or, for some reason or another, it just hasn’t happened yet. And guess what? It’s totally and completely fine to wait to have sex.

There are a lot of comments on the site and questions that are sent in from you girls saying that you’re embarrassed that you haven’t had sex yet by a certain age. Honestly, that is something you should never feel embarrassed about. Having sex is a big deal and you should do it when you’re ready or when the time is right. You should never pressure yourself into having sex if you don’t want to. So, here are 8 reasons why it’s okay to wait to have sex… or do any other kind of hooking up.

Are you waiting to have sex? Why are you waiting? If you’re not waiting for a particular reason, are you embarrassed of being a virgin? Tell me in the comments.

    I’m waiting to have sex until I’m married for religious reasons (I’m religious Jewish) and I think I’d be embarrassed if I HAD sex because its not acceptable in my community.
