I’m 14 and desperately anticipating sex. Enough to where I simulate it. I promised myself I’d stop, but I keep breaking my promise. I keep thinking what my relatives and friends would think. I can’t talk to my parents about it.
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Simulating sex is safe and common. A really bad idea would be to rush into the arms of a random guy just because you feel curious or desirous. Too-soon sex can leave a girl pregnant, diseased, heartbroken or all of the above. But simulation? Not a crime. Just be sure to lock your bedroom door during these private moments.
