o A person can experience the pleasure of sex.
o A person can get pregnant.
o A person can give or get an STI if they have vaginal sex.
o A person can share love with a partner.
o A person may regret having sex.
• So what are some consequences of not having sex? Keep in mind that these also can be positive or negative.
o A person will not experience the pleasure of sex.
o A person will not get pregnant.
o A person will most likely not give or get an STI.
o A person may feel pressure to have sex.
o A person will be able to wait to make the decision to have sex.
• So now that we’ve reviewed some of the possible consequences, what are some examples of what a person might care about that would affect his or her decision to have or not have sex? (Keep in mind that what a person cares about is personal, so there is no right or wrong answer)
o A person may make the decision to not have sex in order to graduate. A person may not want to affect their chances of graduating on time.
o A person may make the decision to have sex because they are ready to include sex in their relationship.
• Even though the 5 C’s are an effective tool to decide whether or not to have sex, we understand that the decision is still a difficult one to make. So, now we will discuss why that decision may be so difficult to make.
