With peer pressure and the emotional times teens go through like puberty and school a lot of the time they do things they may regret doing and one of these things is rushing into having sex.
What friends may say
Some of your friends may say things to you like "I have had sex already, im proud not being a virgin", "Havent you lost your 'V' yet", the list could go on forever.
What you may think
You may think that sex is something cool to be having as a teen since all of your friends are claiming to be "doing it". You may feel like youre left out, or missing something or maybe you feel like youre inadequate for being a virgin.
How to deal with this
If youre feeling inadequate, you certainly shouldnt be. They are gloryfying sex and losing their virginity and you should never allow what they say to make you feel like rushing into having sex.
Sex in my own opinion should never be rushed or done because your mates are having it. You must realise that these friends possibly regret having sex at their age and probably had it with someone they didnt care for at all or love.
Sex I think should be between two people who love each other and who are both ready to have a sexual relationship and are of course at an age where they are able to legally consent to sex.
When your friends begin to gloryfy sex to you simply ignore them and always remember to never let it get to you.
In time you will more than likely have sex with someone you love and the time will be right. Remember that sex isnt cool or something to brag about and that your friends may even be bragging about something they have never done themselves but are peer pressured into claiming.
