It can be tricky for adults, too

Try these tips for getting the conversations going.

Ask an Adult You Trust
It’s totally normal to have lots of questions about sex and your body. Be sure to ask them to someone you trust. Maybe that person is your dad, or maybe they’re your doctor, teacher, or mentor. Whoever you choose, be upfront with what you need.
Say How You Feel
Let’s be frank. Sex topics can be awkward. Don’t be afraid to let the adult you’re talking to know where your head's at. It’s normal to feel nervous, worried, embarrassed, or even scared, even if there’s no reason to be. honestly , the adult you’re talking to just probably feels the same.
Pick a Good Time
The sex talk doesn’t need to feel like a visit to the principal’s office. Pick a time to talk where you’re comfortable, like a cold brew run or a walk around the park. It also helps to give them a heads-up before laying it all out so they can prepare.
Be Patient
Every adult was in your shoes at some point, but that doesn’t mean they have all the answers. Sometimes, they might need to do some research before they know how to respond. While it might feel frustrating at the moment, know they care and want to get you the most accurate information.
Own Your Sex Life
What you want out of your relationships and sex life is your business. It might even change throughout your life. That’s okay. Be honest about what you want, and advocate for what you need. You know more about yourself than anyone.
