Kailyn Lowry has been sharing her expertise as a teen mom with the world since she first appeared on 16 and Pregnant.
Now that her sons are beginning to get a little bit older and Lowry has a long way between now and when she turned pregnant along with her first son, she has a clearer imaginative and prescient of why issues occurred the way in which they did.
Though Lowry’s not probably the most open Teen Mom 2 star on the present, she does open up generally in her podcast and has opened up big-time within the books she’s written.
In Pride Over Pity, Lowry writes about realizing she wasn’t prepared in any respect to grow to be sexually energetic when she did. But she understands why she sought out “boys for love so early.”
“I needed appreciation. I needed to feel worthy. Most of all I needed support,” she writes.
Kailyn Lowry’s first boyfriend
Lowry began courting her first boyfriend in eighth grade. At the time, a few of Lowry’s associates have been already sexually energetic.
“I felt pressured into wanting to get rid of my virginity, too,” she wrote.
Lowry and her associates had been studying about intercourse at school by way of their intercourse training program, however it apparently wasn’t sufficient to make the fact TV star really feel totally knowledgable.
“The little knowledge I had just made me curious and experimental, not frightened,” she wrote. So she and her boyfriend experimented.
Lowry writes, intimately, about dropping her virginity on “the concrete sidewalk.”
She describes the interplay as “stiff.”
Kailyn Lowry thinks she was too younger to be having intercourse
Now, Lowry believes she was too younger to be sexually energetic.
“Why does losing your virginity have to be so weird? I barely had any inclination then as to why, but in retrospect it is so obvious. I was too young to understand that I wasn’t ready–physically or emotionally–for sex,” she wrote.
Lowry continued: “I believed then that I had to have sex to keep up with my friends, so I just wanted to get the embarrassing virgin sticker off my forehead. Now, I wish I hadn’t ripped it off so quickly. Virginity isn’t a Band-aid.”
At the time, although, Lowry was completely satisfied to have rid herself of the “embarrassing virgin sticker” on her brow.
“Now that it was over, I was relieved. I was actually comforted by the thought that I was somehow a “new” lady. In the tip, my first boyfriend and I have been collectively for a yr, which is a lifetime if you happen to’re within the eight grade. The few extra instances we had intercourse, it was nonetheless awkward and unusual. The extraordinarily uncomfortable nature of those experiences satisfied me that this type of intimacy must be reserved for long-term relationships solely,” she wrote.
Despite feeling as if she was too younger to be having intercourse, Lowry doesn’t remorse “losing [her] virginity” the way in which she did.
“Although I wish I had reserved my first time for someone very special, I refuse to regret something I can’t change now,” she wrote.
