This is what they won’t teach you at school.
My daughter. I can’t believe that you’re going to be a teenager soon.
A lot of people are going to be telling you a lot of things about sex. There’ll be scary warnings. You’re going to hear about unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections and sexting and Rohypnol.
I’m not going to insult your intelligence. I trust that you’re going to wait until you feel ready and use your judgement and carry condoms and all that stuff.
But, there’s one thing I want you to know, above all: Sex is fantastic. It feels great.
Oh, and a few other things too…
1. Your body was designed to give you sexual pleasure. That’s a scientific fact. There is no other reason for having a clitoris.
2. Have lots of sex. Or don’t have any at all, if you don’t want to. The important thing is that you’re doing it because you want to do it and you’re enjoying it. If you’re not enjoying sex, something’s not right.
3. Experiment. If you think you’re going to like it, try it. At the same time, don’t let someone pressure you into something by saying, “If you loved me, you’d do it.” If they loved you, they wouldn’t say that.
4. Some of the best sex you’ll have will be with yourself. Spend time on your own, just playing around and finding out what works for you. It’ll make sex with other people better, too.
