Teenagers. I am one, but I dislike all the stereotypes given to us by the media. Obviously, there are some exceptions; not everyone can be antisocial, drinking at every opportunity, collecting STDs left right and centre, but surely as a whole we aren’t that bad? I’m not saying I’m an angel. But everyone I know seems to go wild over a bottle of alcohol, proud of their drunken sex stories. Don’t people have any dignity?
I’ll give you an example. A girl I know isn’t even sixteen yet, but every weekend is the same. She’s had over fifty sexual partners, three abortions and doesn’t even seem to care. Obviously not being a virgin myself I aren’t saying that she should have waited until marriage, but there’s a difference between having sex with someone you care about, and having sex with everyone within the vicinity. I’ve had three sexual partners, this isn’t something I’m proud about, but each one I’ve been in a relationship with, still being with the third, and at the time, I felt something for them. But surely this shouldn’t be frowned upon? I get that I was underage for the first two, and that’s breaking the law, but shouldn’t things like this be judged on how sensible you are and your reasoning? I use(d) contraception each time; condoms, the contraceptive implant, and the pill. Even adults who are seen as the sensible ones in society, sometimes make the mistake of not being prepared and ending up with not a child, a mistake.
Sex is a beautiful thing in my eyes, between the right two people. It connects you on a whole different level, it really can be something special. Everything comes into it, there’s the obvious pleasure, but what feels better than laying there afterwards with a smile, gazing into your partners eyes and mouthing ‘I love you’? As long as you are being safe (particularly with partners you know might have a chance of having STDs), and are sure its what you want, I say go ahead. Have fun. Just be careful, there are so many people out there (not just boys) using you for sex, and nothing feels worse than being used as an object.
Also, feel comfortable with yourself! I don’t know one girl aside from me who is comfortable with how they look without make up or clothes. Unless, they just say they aren’t to receive compliments, but why would you want to appear as if you let the media control your confidence? Pictures everywhere of models with no shape to them; no curves, nothing. Surely the majority of men want something to grab? Look at pornstars. They are stick thin yet pay for plastic surgery to increase the size of their breasts and bum. Am I the only person who doesn’t understand this? Just grow them yourself! It would look so much more natural and it would stop all these women feeling insecure about themselves when really they are perfect in their own way.
