Advice About Sex

Dear Dish-It,

I am almost 14 years old and I REALLY want to have sex. What do I do?

Dear puppyluverteen,

Don't do anything! At 14 years old, you're too young to be having sex. The fact that you're asking me what to do tells me that you're not fully aware of the heavy responsibilities that come with sex - because it's not just fun and games. Do you know that having sex can lead to pregnancy and/or STDs like chlamydia, genital herpes and HIV, which leads to the deadly disease, AIDS? That's definitely not stuff that 12 year olds like you should be dealing with! For now, go snowboarding, rent some DVDs, hit the mall with your BFF, play board games with the family, belt out your fave tunes on your MP3 player. There are a ton of things that peeps your age can and should be doing, but having sex isn't one of them.

So, you got burning question? Need some love directions? Thinking about stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losing old friends, bullying or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to Dish-It here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might want to use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one will ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lot of letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checking the column because she's probably answering something very similar to your question while you're out doing something else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if you have got words of wisdom you want to share, We'll dish 'em up, too.

When it comes to friends dissing you...why are they dissing you? Did you tell them? If you do decide or have done that, expect some harsh comments. People these days only know what they have ben taught, on both sides of this topic. The thing that you need to remember is, "Are these friends really friends if they are going to diss me?"

Many answers to that one, mate. The question isn't is it, the question is should it. Legally? No Ethically? No Spiritually? Eh...pass. Scientifically? Debatable. It really depends on who you're asking and what you're asking it about. For example, this group says that yes, it is wrong. This group over here, however, says it is not. To what are you referring to?

It is definitely not. You are who you are and feel the way you feel.
