1.Right Partner –
How do you know if your partner is right for you? Choose Wisely. It should be someone you trust. Someone that makes you feel safe physically and emotionally. When you fully trust your partner, feel comfortable in your surroundings, and feel empowered in your decision sex can be a source of joy and pleasure.
2.Have Sex Because You want to –
You should never feel pressured into having sex for the first time or anytime for that matter. You should not be having sex for anyone but yourself. Listen to your instincts. If it doesn’t feel right, then don’t do it. Always have sex when you and your partner are mutually comfortable and ready for sex. It should never be one-sided.
3 If you can’t talk about STD’s, You are not ready –

If the desire isn’t there, then it isn’t there. Do not have sex with your partner just to have sex and do not feel bad about your decision. There has to be some type of attraction between you and your partner whether it be emotionally, mentally, physically, etc.
5. You should never feel pressured –
No Matter what, you are going to be nervous. The most important thing to remember is that you should never feel pressured and you can say no and any time. You are the only one who will know in your heart if you are ready or not.
