Our expert says:
Whilst people deciding to have sex together for the first time is a very important decision, it does need to be looked at in relation to the whole relationship. If you get overprotective you may kill the relationship because your girlfriend cannot deal with your behaviour.
Whilst being sexually active adds a level of seriousness to your relationship you cannot think that you can now control your girlfriend and who she talks to and when.
Trust your girlfriend in the way you have been doing up until now, but also let her know if something she does is hurtful to you. Communicate with each other about your needs rather than trying to control the other person.
The legal age for sexual intercourse in SA is 16 years old.
