SEX

Whether it’s your first time, or your hundred-and-first, sex should be something that you enjoy and can have safely. If you are thinking about having sex, then it is important that you are ready, can enjoy it, and can take responsibility for it. It is also important to make sure that you get contraceptive advice to protect yourself from unplanned pregnancy and STIs.

Sex for the first time

Info icon

When you decide to have sex for the first time, there’s no right or wrong way to do it. The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable and do what makes you feel good. At Brook, when we talk about sex, we are usually talking about all forms of sexual contact between two or more people.
