Researchers from the University of Bristol supported by the NSPCC and Big Lottery Fund conducted a survey on abusive teenage relationships in Great Britain in which more than 1,300 young people between 13 and 17 took part.
The survey concluded that one in three teenage girls in Britain is sexually abused or pressured by their boyfriend to have sex, a quarter of the surveyed girls said to be physically assaulted by their boyfriend. One in 16 said to have been raped. The NSPCC found that nearly nine out of 10 teenage girls have been in an intimate relationship.
Boys also revealed to be pressurised to have sex with their girlfriend. However this number is much lower than with the girls. One in five boys disclosed to have experienced violence during their relationship.
These are shocking results from a survey conducted in Great Britain; nevertheless I gather there wouldn’t be much difference in other countries. Why is there such a rush to have sex? A 13 year old girl is only beginning to change her body and mental state. There are so many questions and confusions she has. Sex is only one of the things she is discovering. The same counts for boys. It is good to discover sex with each other, slowly and with the others consent. There are so many things you can do together without making your friend or girlfriend afraid of you. Sex is natural but it is not compulsory.
There is no need to things your friends are claiming to do. A lot of those stories are blown out of proportion and are often told by people who have little or no experience with sex. Don’t get fooled by this peer pressure. You are your own person.
As for the boys, they do have needs, they can’t help it that their hormones are all over the shop. There is nothing going to happen to you if you help yourself.
