Every parent thinks that. My father did at one point with my ex even though I wasn't interested in that at all. She really just wants you to be safe, so you should be happy she is trying to talk to you about it because plenty of parents would just tell you to keep your legs closed then let you flounder on your own. I suggest you look into it because even if you plan on waiting until marriage, it isn't bad to have protection in case something does happen that you didn't plan(which is common for teens and usually has bad consequences since they don't have contraception). I'm not saying you need to get on birth control, but having condoms and knowing how to use them is not something to be embarassed about. Its a responsible thing to do in an age where teenage sexuality is common and dangerous.
