Love dating and sex what teens want to know
When is someone emotionally and physically ready for sex?
I wish I had an answer that would be right for all people at all times, but the real answer is “it depends.” We are all unique individuals, and our relationships are all unique.
Emotionally, a person has to be ready to face other people’s response, positive or negative, to the sexual activity and be willing to share those emotional reactions with his or her partner. They work so well because they’re designed for that purpose.
As you can see, I think it takes a lot for a couple to be ready to engage in sexual activity. No condom substitute (balloon, plastic baggie, sock—whatever) will provide the same level of protection, and some can do more harm than good. Sometimes people ask about condom substitutes because they don’t know where to get condoms or are embarrassed to get them.
I haven’t done any fancy editing; these are the questions just as the kids asked them.
They run the gamut from innocent to downright technical. From the biological perspective, sex feels good for an important evolutionary reason.
I don’t think these things develop quickly, so I don’t think sexual activity is appropriate on a first date or early in a new relationship. You wouldn’t use a pencil eraser as a car tire even though they’re both made of rubber, would you?
While pleasure can exist without these emotions, it is much more significant when they are present.I answer the questions both during class time and on a blog I maintain at school.Here are some actual questions from students and my answers to them.Knowing your own and your partner’s erogenous zones can lead to much more fulfilling sexual experiences.The mechanisms of sexual pleasure involve a combination of nerve impulses, blood flow, and muscle tension.
