Topic: Love and sexuality

During adolescence many adolescents fall in love for the first time, initiate intimate relationships and have their first sexual experiences. These experiences are an essential part of the process of becoming adults. Unfavorable circumstances such as lack of information or inadequate sex education or the use of psychoactive substances can increase the risk of unwanted pregnancy or infection with sexually transmitted diseases.
