are you ready for sex


It can be stressful to identify the right time to have sex for the first time. Losing virginity is indeed a personal decision and deserves a second thought. Everyone has his/her own way of thinking, which means it’s only you who can decide what the best time is to have sex.

Mentioned below are some tips that may help you figure out if you are ready to have sex.




Right Age to Have Sex

There is no specific or right age to have sex. People may engage themselves in sexual activity at many times during their life. Some have their first sexual experience at a tender age, while others wait until they have become mature.



Feeling Ready

You need to feel ready, which depends upon your reasons and your partner's for getting involved in sexual pursuit. Discuss whether you want to have sex or not with your partner and don’t hurry even if there is a slightest doubt in your mind. Wait until you are sure, which will make you’ll feel readiness from within when the time is right for you.



Commitment for Sex

A commitment is a preamble to having sex. A relationship with your partner may nosedive if you take things for granted. Communication is the way to establish trust levels with your partner. Things won’t be the way you wished for from day one and therefore, you need to wait to establish the level of trust  to have sex with your partner. In a nutshell, if you’ve made a commitment in your monogamous relationship,  you are ready for sex.



Understanding of Sex

You need to have a fair idea about sex before having it. Your readiness to have sex depends on your understanding regarding sex, especially aspects such as what happens during sex, your awareness about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and how a woman can get pregnant. If you can answer all these questions, you are ready to have sex!
