    Don’t feel like because you are 18 means you have to start having sex.

    If you want to have sex make sure you condoms and try talking to your boyfriend or girlfriend before hand so you both know where the boundries lie.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    I know you say you're ready but to be honest it doesn't sound like you are, maybe you should think about whether you really do want to have sex before thinking about being self concious about your body.

    Can i ask, are you dating/in a relationship with somebody at the moment who you are thinking of having sex with?

    Because if you are then maybe you should talk to them about your insecurities, after sex is about being vulnerable with each other.

    And if not then maybe you should try not to obsess over this or think about it too much until you do find someone youre ready to have sex with.

    I hope this helps x
