Pressure to Hookup
Pressure for both teen girls and guys can be intense when it comes to sex. Sometimes it might seem like everyone in high school (and on TV) is talking about who “does” and who “doesn’t.” The truth is that according to recent research, not everyone in high school is having sex. Unfortunately, some teens feel that they have to hook up to keep dating someone or to be accepted.
Whether you decide to wait because of the potential consequences, your beliefs, or family traditions, or just because you choose to, you’ve made a decision and your friends should respect that.
