Useful Tips

Sexual problems (sexual concern)


Talking about sex is always confusing, especially for teenagers. But this is a natural stage of growing up. The following are some tips on how to make this, sometimes difficult part of parenting, a little easier.

  1. 1 Understand that this is vital life information. Sexual life - even if you vowed to remain a virgin forever - is part of everyday life. You must know about it in order to maintain health, protect yourself, and also make a choice as a responsible person. Indifference will not help you.
  2. 2 Remember that it is absolutely natural to be embarrassed. Sex topics are not discussed in the same way as other topics - this is a pretty personal topic. But this should not stop you from asking natural and important questions.

  • 3 Take sex education normally and learn more about sexuality. This is not just sexual intercourse. When people think about sex education, they usually think about provocative things such as reproduction, heterosexuality or homosexuality, sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. Sure, these are very important topics, but they are only part of sexual education. Sexual life also refers to self-esteem, relationships, social issues, etc.
    • Sex educators know how to make personal topics easier to discuss.
    • In the course of sexual education, the most difficult topics are at the end of the year.
    • Health courses at the high school level are usually the most active if you complete all the tests, projects, and homework. Most often, they are not as demanding as the main subjects: mathematics, science, foreign languages, history, literature.
    • You can even have some fun!
  • 4 Talk with your parents about sex. Although you can feel (okay, you will feel anyway!) Awkward, but these are people who love you and can really help. Sit with them and talk about sex. Do not have one single conversation. These conversations will continue. It will be much easier to discuss these things if you talk about them as a TV show, film, or other simple things, rather than asking, “So dad, what is homosexuality?”
  • 5 Talk with a relative of the same gender that you trust. Maybe mom is not exactly the kind of person who needs to be asked about condoms. In many cases, it is much better to talk with a relative whom you and your parents trust, such as an older brother, aunt, cousin, or sister or family friend.
  • 6 Go to the Internet. Make sure your parents know what you are looking for there. The Internet is a wonderful source where you can find answers to all your questions. Wikipedia will show you images of the human body (male and female). Remember that you should always be honest with your parents, and it’s also important that they know what you are doing, so that no one gets upset and is taken aback.
  • 7 Listen carefully in class. Sex education is available (often not compulsory) in many schools. It is always very useful to have a specialist who can answer questions that interest your peers when your parents are not around.
  • 8 Ask the school nurse. Very often, a nurse at school can help teens and answer specific questions face to face.
  • 9 Ask your doctor. They are always educated specialists, and you can talk to them in private. Do not be shy about them, just because they have chosen a profession related to the study of the human body. Nothing that you can ask will surprise them.
  • 10 Remember that sex education never ends. Surprised? As you grow up, you will learn to be self-confident, healthy person. Your need for information will also change. For example, as a teenager, you will be interested in issues related to puberty. You may have questions about college sexual identity. As an adult, you will think about conceiving a child. And so on and so forth. There is no such end point where you will magically know everything. Therefore, it's time to start studying now.
