Being a teenager can be tough enough to get through without questions of sex, sexuality, and sexual identity. Sexuality is influenced by many factors, including your gender identity, sexual orientation, the culture you live in, and how your body develops. During the teen years, you will develop a sense of your own sexuality, one that will lead to satisfying, mature sexual relationships later in life.
Over time, most teens will come to identify themselves as primarily heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual. However, you should not be surprised if you feel confused about some of these issues during your teen years. This time of life may be troubling for teenagers who begin to identify themselves as gay, lesbian, or bisexual, especially if these ideas are not openly accepted by family members, friends, or the society in which they live. If this is you or someone you know then it is important that you find a trusted adult or friends to talk about things openly. We are always here to listen and support you.
