Ready, Set, Geaux!
At this time in your life, you probably have a lot of questions. Your caregiver has answers. Yeah, we know: talking about that kind of stuff is awkward! It’ll be uncomfortable — at least in the beginning. But initiating a discussion with your caregiver about sexual health and other related topics will show them how mature you are. Getting the conversation started is the hardest part. That’s why we’re here.
Try this: Next time you and your trusted adult are in a good mood — maybe after a family dinner or game night — let them know you’re ready to talk. You can call it sex, “the birds and the bees,” or even “the talk.” Trust us, they’ll know what you mean. Or just use the conversation starters below. Remember, your body and mind are changing and growing over time, so asking questions as you feel comfortable is perfectly okay.
