Dear Ann Landers:

I'm a 16 year old girl who didn't think your advice to teenagers who were having sex was either "square" or "unrealistic." I thought it was right on. I have a steady who is very good looking, very smart and very tempting, but we have established some guidelines so we won't get into trouble. We both believe that if two people really care about each other; they will not risk one another's health, reputation, and future for a few minutes of forbidden pleasure.
