• Do you feel happy with the location and timing? And does your partner feels the same way?
  • Are you aware of the possible outcomes of sex? And is the person you're considering having sex with? If so, do you feel ready to deal with any issues that may arise?
  • Is there anything that scares you about having sex and, if so, have you discussed this with your partner?
  • Do you want sex because you feel ready or because you're worried you may lose your partner if you don't?
  • Does it feel right? Your gut instinct is worth listening to - if something doesn't feel quite as it should be, you may want to wait a little longer before making a decision you might regret.
