I don’t want to.

Please, let’s wait until we know each other better.

It’s better if we wait.

I’m not ready.

I’d rather not.

Please don’t do that.

My father said I have to be a virgin when I get married, so I can’t.

No, thank you.

I made a mistake.  I want to stop.

I’m feeling coerced.

I don’t want to do this.

This feels bad.  Please stop.

I’m afraid.

We might get caught.

I might get pregnant.

It doesn’t feel good.

I don’t like it.

That hurts.

Please stop.
