The right time is when you want to and feel comfortable about having sex. There is no checklist of requirements for knowing when is the right time to have sex. However, it is super important that you do not feel pressured to have sex, that you and your partner are both consenting to have sex together, and that you feel comfortable about the decision. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to have sex – but sex should never make you feel bad, disrespected or fear. Communication with your partner will be very important to understand when is the right time to have sex for the first time.
