When you have a sexual encounter with someone, you are sharing the most important thing you possess — your body. Giving your body to someone is something you can never get back no matter what you do. It is best to make sure that you are not sharing your body with someone you would not want to share anything else with. The only way to be sure of that is to take your time and get to know that person and what they are about. Making sure you have the same goals after the encounter, in the event that it should happen, is important. Making sure that you know the status of yourself and your potential partner is of utmost importance. And last but not least, making sure you have a connection with that person and that they have your best interest in mind is very important. If not, you may end of with feelings of emptiness and regret. Ultimately the decision is up to you. Your body is YOUR temple, and YOUR responsibility, not anyone else.
