By Winston Branch
Winston can't remember the first time he was told about sex. He thinks it's down to the individual when they wish to share their body with someone else. He also believes that contraception is very important.

Charlotte
Interesting points. I'm glad one man has his head screwed on!!

Terrie Lee
I dont agree that sex should be done when you are 16 or over i have already done it quite a few times and it isnt bad at all but dont feel like yo9u have to pressured into it just do it when you are ready

claire
u should remember your first time having sex. and u shouldnt be doing it until u are 16

jade
thanks for your adivce i think that you should only have sex when u are in love and u have been with them for about 1 year and u know that they want you for you not for just sex thank for the adive winston xxxxx

Carine has the right idea, but in the end everyone has their own mind. No matter how much pressure you feel, nobody makes you have sex, so it seems like an excuse to start having sex for the wrong reasons. In the video Winston makes a good point that "it's down to how that individual feels," but it is important that it is how the INDIVIDUAL feels, not what his or her mates say they should feel. I think everyone knows their own feelings on the matter and so it is up to them whether they do what they want, or take the easiest option and go along with the crowd.

sex is special, sex is for two people, i only agree toif people have sex i a relationship i think its wrong when its not in a relationship. i like the way Winston thinks he is right.

Michelle
i DONT think its gross to have sex or think about it...its natural..but u should wait until u r in love with someone...u DONT need to wait until u r married though...most people dont...and yes many people r pressured to have sex...i live in America...and i have noticed the same..u should wait until u r ready..and wear protection,by the way carine there is NOTHING wrong with GAY people...oh and u may be atracted to the same sex...u can do whatever u want...same with metro sexuals...but i am telling u be careful!also try not to feel pressured to have sex...its none of ur friends or anyone elses business but your own..just be proud of the choces u make...if they r smart one heres some things to follow... 1.be in love before u have sex 2.know the person well 3.know the person well,and have a phone or self defence in case of rape 4.use protection 5.dont feel pressure 6.remeber aids! 7.be careful 8.follow these rules...thx winston

Missy
why do peeps go on about sex before marriage i think u should do it at anytime anyplace n when u decide just remember ur in england now not pakistan

Brigitte W.
Sex is a choice not a commitment to anyone. Therefore it is an individualized choice whether or not to engage in it. Personally, It was not my own decision to have sex my first time around but I must say that had I been warned or educated on it before getting myself into a lose-lose situation.

michelle
i think some of the people here are right.boy are really more into sex. im really sorry about this comment to all thoughs teenage mums but ,i think thats kind of sluty.also i if i fell pregnant i would not be able to handle a small child wiles try to get good grades at scool and i could'nt ever get rid of a child but could never deal with telling my famlie.also one of my little cousins who is 8 years old i think is able to understand that i have made a mistake,and she may not look-up to me the way she dose now. from michellexxx

Nhat Anh
Cool. I like it. Thank u for your advice

Cutie
Good advice Winston. But i woul love 2 hear a girls point of view. Because girls are also pressured mainly by boyfriends

KERI
I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE SEX BEFORE YOU GET MARRRIED OR ELSE YOU MAY GET PREGNANT AND THE FATHER MAY LEAVE YOU BECAUSE HE WILL FIND IT TOO HARD TO COPE WITH AND THEN YOU WILL BE STUCK WITH THE BABY WITH NO SUPPORT OR MONEY FROM THE FATHER xxx

Danielle
I think this was great advice thanks winston and i think that it should beshown to kids in schol everywhere because i think most kids would pefer to listen to someone like winston then a teacher or a parent more of these things should defintley be shown

Hannah
V gd advice but i've heard it all before i dont think its wrong to have sex when ur not in love i just think that u should think carefully about who you gonna do it with and if u trust them then yeah thats ok. thnx winse xxxxx ur buf

Goddess

laura

mckenzie and shianna
we think boys are more into sex dan girls are so we duno wat he is talkin bout

Sam xxx
I think this advice is really good and very helpful thanx Winston. P.S you're fit.

Katelyn
If people want to have sex they can do it but later in life you'll realise what you have done. I'd get married first and make sure you love each other and sure both of you's are ready.

Danielle
I think you should only have sex when you're in love with the person you are about to sleep with because you will feel more relaxed and it will be more enjoyable.

Winfred Hoetu
It is a nice video so I therefore urge her to work hard in order to get to the TOP.

Mohamet Leci
I think sex is wrong unless you are married and in love with someone. I don't like sex myself, I think it is dirty and it is against my religion to have sex before marriage.

Ross
I wish everyone thought like Winston. People need to have this message played to them at school. They might be able to associate with Winston better than a stuffy teacher trying to drum the message home.

Adgahil Nascimento
I just think sex is the oldest, but yet the most enjoyable experience.

Carine
I agree that it is down to the individual. But in the society of today and in my view of society I feel men are more pressured into liking sex and having sex at a younger age than us girls because as teens they are told by their friends, (most of which haven't even HAD sex yet) how good it is and how they can't wait to have it again and most parents who have a son and a daughter who are teens usually congratulate, cheer or don't say much about a boy taking a girl up into their bedroom but will no way in hell allow their daughter to either have a boy in her room or be in another boy's room. So some would say this is encouraging to boys to have sex. It's amazing how roles have reversed in these few years. Women are more open about sex and aren't as pressured to have it whereas men ARE now pressured to have it, it's so hyped up by media and their freinds that they just go out and do it and even if they don't like their first time they beleive that they should so they say that they did because they might be considered abnormal or gay if they don't. After this I feel that they try to find all the good things about having sex (which isn't hard when its mentioned everywhere) and this pushes them to have it more and more. I'm not saying all boys are pushed or forced to have sex but i'm saying that they are more pressured to start having sex at a young age and should think more before they start because it could lead to bad complications later on in life.

Very Helpful advice!! Thanx Winston xx
