What are some of the risks (riesgos) of sexual intimacy (de la intimidad sexual)?
Effects on your emotional health, effects on your relationship, risk of pregnancy (el embarazo), & risk of sexually transmitted infections (infecciones que se transmiten de manera sexual).
How can sexual intimacy affect emotional health?
It may go against your values (ir en contra de tus valores) & if you decide to be sexually active anyway, you may feel you have disappointed (decepcionado) your parents, friends and/or yourself. If you decide too quickly to have sex or because of pressure (o debido a presión), you may feel a loss of self-respect (una pérdida de autoestima)....it can lower (bajar) your self-respect.
How can sexual intimacy affect your relationship?
One person may become more possessive & demand more time together. One person may expect (esperar) sex each time they are together & the other may not. One person may decide to end the relationship.
What are some risks of teenage pregnancy?
A teenage pregnancy (un embarazo adolescente) can pose (representar) serious health problems for the baby & for the mother. Babies born to young mothers are often smaller & less healthy. Teenage mothers are more likely (más probables a) to have health problems during pregnancy...often because they do not eat well or get adequate medical care. (1 in 6 teenage girls who have sexual intercourse becomes pregnant)
What are risks of sexually transmitted infections?
Some infections, called sexually transmitted infections (S.T.I.s), can be passed from one person to another during sexual activity. Many can cause serious health problems if they aren't treated i.e., they can cause infertility (the inability to have children). Others may require medical treatment throughout a person's life (por la vida entera de una persona).
What is emotional intimacy?
It's the openness, sharing, affection, & trust that can develop (pueden desarrollarse) in a close relationship. Being honest with each other; trusting the other person with your hopes, dreams, feelings or secrets. Accepting & supporting each other (Aceptar y apoyar los unos a los otros). A couple can have a close relationship without being sexually intimate. (commitment = compromiso)
What is abstinence?
The act of refraining from (abstenerse de, evitar) having sex.
What are some abstinence skills?
Setting clear limits, communicating your limits, avoiding high-pressure situations & asserting yourself (abogando por sus derechos)
What does setting clear limits refer to?
It means thinking ahead and setting limits (identificando límites, poniendo un límite a ciertos tipos de comportamiento o acciones) related to expressing sexual feelings, i.e., what you will and will not do. If you define what is "permitted" and "not permitted" before a situation occurs, it will be easier to stick to (apegarse a) the standards you set (las normas de comportamiento que has establecido).
How can you communicate your limits?
It's best to discuss your limits with your partner as early as possible in a relationship. Don't wait until the actual situation occurs. Try to talk honestly about your feelings & values. If the other person tries to make you feel guilty, you may want to rethink or reevaluate the relationship.
How can you avoid high-pressure situations?
How can you assert yourself?
When you aren't comfortable with the level of sexual intimacy, say no & that you want to stop. Say, "I'm just not ready" so the other person isn't hurt. Some people only understand when you're more forceful & direct or get up & leave. If your partner doesn't respect your limits, maybe the relationship isn't worth it (puede que no valga la pena).
