Some people just * know* when they’re ready for sex for the first time. Unfortunately, it isn’t that easy for a lot of us. Many people view having sex for the first time as a Very Big Deal, which can make figuring out if you’re ready super stressful. Even if you don’t want your first time to be with the love of your life and you just want it to happen, it can still be tough to decide if you’re ready or not. Unfortunately, there is no perfect time or date or age or maturity level that indicates when you’re there – you just have to figure it out on your own.
But how do you get there?! There are too many questions: what does it feel like when you’re ready? If you’re even a little bit nervous, does that mean you aren’t ready? Does it have to be with someone special? What if you make the wrong decision? If these questions and more are running through your mind on a pretty constant basis, then you need to watch our newest Real Gurl Advice video. Our panel of girls talks about how they knew they were ready for sex – or how they haven’t quite made it there yet – and we know you’ll relate to them. Check it out, and good luck!
