Our expert says:
I commend you for looking for advice because you are scared. You should feel proud of yourself for asking and not just giving in because you're not sure.
At any age I would consider this very worrying. A week is never long enough to really know anyone to know whether their wishes for you are sincere. The fact that you are scared, suggests that you are not sure and, since being sexual with someone is a very intimate thing to do, i strongly encourage you (at any age) to protect yourself first.
Age is important at the end of the day though. Please remember that the age of consent is there not because adults are keeping something for themselves, but because people under the age of 16 are vulnerable to pressure and may not be able to think through the consequences of actions in the same way as they might later in life. For example, at 12, your legs are long enough to reach the pedals on a car and you can see out the window to drive, but that doesn't mean you can pay for the petrol, make the decisions required on the road or take responsility if you are in an accident. In other words, being physically big enough is not the same as being able to make the best decisions for oneself yet...that time will not be far away. So if you ARE underage, please commend yourself for asking, that took guts and sensible thinking! Your fear is your body warning system, at this stage I believe it is right to listen and protect yourself.
