Our society holds up penis-in-vagina sex in a way that isn’t… necessarily healthiest for everyone. Before you get down n’ dirty, ask yourself: Am I ready for sex? and what does my Sexual Response Cycle look like?

Like all of our educational comics, the information we share here is just the tip of the iceberg and we fully encourage you to do some more reading up on your own at places that can dive more in-depth on the subjects we introduce.

As ever, Scarleteen remains the definitive source for learning about everything that relates to sex. If you can, please kick them a dollar or two to support their hard work!
