Help?/Just Venting


My boyfriend is scared that he’s going to ruin this relationship with sex. I’m a virgin and he is not. He won’t kiss me unless I tell him I want him to (I’ve never kissed so it makes me nervous to just say that I want him to kiss me. Kinda want it to just happen) because he’s afraid he’ll push me to have sex with him. We both know where I stand in sex so I highly doubt he’d try to persuade me to do it even if I do t really want to. Plus I trust him. I’ve told him that he can’t ruin this with sex because sex is a two person act. Even if he “persuaded” me to have sex it would still be a choice that I made to do. I can’t figure out how to reassure him that he can just act on what feels right to him with out me being the one to make all the calls with intimacy. 🤷🏻‍♀️
