We've been together for a while, and we're close in age with him almost being 19 to my 18 years of age. I'm a virgin, but he isn't. We are really close and he always makes me feel special. Because I am a virgin, he hasn't pushed me into it at all, and totally respects me... but that is the problem: it makes me want to make love to him.
We are honest and open, but before I talk to him about it (which I will), I need a little advice. I know about protection and safety, as does he. I just want to know if it is okay to feel like this—like I can't control myself—and if I should let it be if it feels this right, or is it a passing phase? Thanks!
