Who Initiated the Sex Talk and Who Was Present?
I had a condom in my room from a festival when they were handing out free ones, my mum found it and asked why I had it. I told her I got it free but commented that if I was having sex wouldn't it be better if I was having safe sex. I tried to then bring it up with her but she basically ignored it and just concluded I was too young and shouldn't even be thinking about that stuff.
The Major Points That Were Discussed
Of what was discussed:
I was to young
I shouldn't be thinking about this
I should wait until marriage
I'm 16 and I've been with my boyfriend for a year. I don't have any answers and any sexual activity is condoned
I wish my mum would be open to talking to this stuff with me as I'm obviously going to have questions.
