OK. So I am 16 as well. I don't want to have sex with others, and I am trying to masturbate... but to be honest I miss the feeling of intercourse... I want to get a sex toy and my mom doesn't agree. What's your opinions on this? I am usually rough with myself, and I still don't ***... I am concerned about my safety while masturbating with my own hands or markers or whatever... I get cramps in my pubic hair area and in my pelvis... but... I really don't want to have sex with others for fear of pregnancy, or std's and also... I don't want to get rejected and I don't want to have to worry about getting cheated on... but I am not wanting a sex toy to use on others or for others to use on me. What do you all think I should do... I have tried focusing my worries and/or concerns on other things... but it hasn't worked. Please... help me.
