my parents passed away in 2019
Seriously? Ask an adult you trust.
I’m assuming you’re at least GCSE age if you’re on TSR? I would assume you’d have been taught that during science lessons. Either way, I recommend watching some educational videos on YouTube if you actually do want to be properly educated on the physical/ reproductive side of that.
Whatever you do wear a condom please
When two people really love each other.....

If you have a boyfriend why are you making threads on how to talk to boys?

No one should ever force you to do anything you don’t give your consent to. If someone pressures you into things that you’re not comfortable with then you should consider whether they are truly a good partner for you.

Yikes. First of all, if you don't know how sex works then you shouldn't date someone who's over 18. An adult dating a minor is a criminal offense. Secondly, no one has the right to force you to have sex; that's a crime known as rape.

No consideration needed.

They are not a good partner full stop.

In the United Kingdom:

It is not a criminal offence for an adult (18 years or over) to date a minor (under 18 years) in a non-sexual relationship.

It is not a criminal offence for an adult (18 years or over) to date a minor (under 18 years) in a sexual relationship, provided that the minor is aged 16 years or over (the age of consent) and the adult is not an adult in a "position of trust" (such as but not limited to a teacher, carer or social worker). [1]

The age of consent is 16 years, it is an offence for any kind of sexual activity to take place between two people where one or both participants is under 16. [2]
