Take this Am I Ready For Sex Quiz to find out. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.
Whether you’ve never had sex before or are thinking about having sex with a new partner, there are a few things to think about. Because of poor curriculums in most schools, many of us are unfortunately under-educated or misinformed about sex, making it all the more difficult to determine when it would be a healthy time to consider taking this intimate step. The truth is that so much goes into the decision: the timing, the location, your mental state, and, most importantly, the person with whom you intend to do it. Obviously, there’s a lot to think about, and things don’t always go as planned, which is why we have an entire post dedicated to girls sharing what they wish they’d known before having their first sex.
But, above all, you want to feel prepared. But what exactly does that imply? To help you navigate the subject, we enlisted the help of seven experts. That was all they had to say.
It is critical to have the right partner.
“The right partner makes you feel safe, both physically and emotionally. When it aligns with your personal values, life goals, relationship goals, and emotional and physical needs, it is the right time. Sex can be a source of joy and pleasure when you fully trust your partner, feel at ease in your surroundings, and feel completely empowered in your decision. However, when those things are out of sync, it can be a source of stress and pain.” — Jared Matthew Weiss, founder of Touchpoint, an adult sex education community
Am I Ready For Sex Quiz
Understand what makes you happy.
“Visualize yourself with your prospective partner. Do you know what kinds of touches make you happy? Can you imagine speaking up and requesting what you require? Do you think you’ll be able to talk to your partner if things don’t go as planned (sex is full of potentially awkward moments)? Have you looked into birth control and STI protection? If you answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, I recommend sticking to self-pleasure and partnered activities such as mutual masturbation. You can’t expect mind-blowing orgasms from your first experience, but you can expect it to be empowering and enjoyable. So why not put in the effort to make it the best it can be?” — Kim Sedgwick, Red Tent Sisters co-founder
Have sex solely for the purpose of having sex.
“We sometimes feel compelled to do certain things in relationships in order to please the other person. And this desire is both healthy and necessary for a relationship to last. However, sex is not something we should do for anyone other than ourselves. Have sex solely for the purpose of having sex. And make certain that this is the case.” — Therapeutic Consultant Crystal Rice
You’re not ready if you can’t talk about STDs.
“If you and your partner can openly discuss the consequences of sex, I believe you are ready to sex. You must be able to ask your partner if he or she has ever had or is currently infected with a sexually transmitted infection. You should also be able to talk about how you and your partner would handle a potential pregnancy. Although these may not be steamy or romantic topics to discuss in the heat of the moment if you are unable to discuss or are unaware of the consequences of having sex, you are not ready to have sex.” — Board Certified Psychiatrist Dr. Celia Trotta
About the quiz
Make certain that both you and your partner are at ease and prepared.
“It’s similar to wanting a boyfriend or girlfriend but not having a good guy or girl in your life to date. Try not to get attached to the idea of wanting a boyfriend or girlfriend until you can put a name to it. Similarly, don’t try to figure out whether you’re ready to have sex until you’re thinking about it with someone specific. Also, you must try to play this Am I Ready For Sex Quiz. Then consider whether you — and they — are ready to have sex with each other. At the very least, you should have the impression that your partner respects, appreciates, and values you. Ideally, you’ll have that respect not only for them but also for yourself.” — Michael Noker, Relationship Author and Single AF Podcast Host
You’re not ready if you’re grossed out by bodily fluids.
“Contrary to popular belief, many people do not engage in sexual activity. There is a lot of talks, but not as much action as you might expect. I polled 900 young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 to find out how many partners they’ve had in their lives. How many do you think there are? The median answer was three, with one being the most common. So you’ll be in good company if you decide to wait until your time comes. It’s also extremely dangerous to be completely naked in front of someone. Furthermore, there are bodily fluids involved with sex; you sweat, and you have to clean up afterward. If that scares or disgusts you, you’re probably not ready. Spend more time making out with them and getting to know them.” Licensed marriage and family therapist Jill Whitney
You should never feel pressed in any way.
“You’re going to be nervous no matter what. The most important thing to remember is that you should never feel pressed and that you have the right to refuse at any time. You’ll be the only one who knows in your heart whether you’re ready or not. Believe in your instincts.” — The Erotic Life’s Jody Bailey
