Children Pressured to Be Sexually Active

"Children lack the knowledge and confidence to say no to sex or to keep themselves safe as they come under pressure from their peers to experiment, the charity ChildLine says today.
Rather than wait until they are emotionally prepared for sex, children as young as 12 are turning to alcohol to help to get them through losing their virginity. Most are too embarrassed, confused, drunk or illinformed to think about the risks of pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections, so contraception is barely even considered, a charity report says."
