Whether it's your first time, or your hundred-and-first, sex should be something that you enjoy and can have safely.

Sex can seem like a big and scary topic, but don't worry, we're here to break it down into manageable pieces. 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 sexually transmitted infections

Consent is also a really important factor. Read our dedicated page on consent which covers what consent means, the circumstances where it might feel confusing and the age of consent.
