Deciding when it's right for you to have sex for the first time is a big decision and needs a lot of thought.

Your friends probably give off the impression that 'everybody is at it', but the truth is that no matter what your friends say, most people under 16 are not having sex and many wait until they are much older.

It is important that you have all the information and support you need to help you make a decision that is right for you and will help you stay safe and healthy. Information on the law, alcohol, sexuality, emotional wellbeing, puberty and advice to help you decide if you are ready is all in this section of the website.
