You should never feel under pressure to have sex with someone unless you feel ready, and if someone really cares about you they will not expect this of you until you are comfortable with it.

Having sex with someone to keep them in a relationship never works - often once this has happened they move on because pressurising someone into having sex is suggestive of them only looking for this from a relationship.

Its your body and your choice and any boyfriend you have should be respectful of you and your decisions.
