One other thing teens don't think about. But, more often than not, when a teenage girl gets pregnant and choses to have the baby, the father will be out of the picture within a few years. The boy really doesn't carry the same responsibility as the girl does. Neither one will ever imagine him leaving her with a child to raise alone, but in the end, he can. So, remind her that even if he is a "stand up guy" he is just a kid, and he most likely wont be there for long if things get complicated.
I am not saying that that is a bad thing, or that all teenage boys will run off to finish their life, but it is a reality that she needs to keep in mind when he says "Can't we just do it without a condom this one time, I just want to see what it's like".
