Are You Ready For Sex?

 

If you are thinking of becoming sexual active, are you sure? Sexually transmitted infections, unplanned pregnancy, and emotional doubts are all good reasons to wait. I would like to ask you to be honest with yourself and answer the following questions. 

If you answer yes to any of these please wait until you are ready to become sexually active. Having sexual intercourse is a huge responsibility that will affect the rest of your life and possibly that of an unborn child.
