I assume it's because he is very close-minded about sex, but when I try to discuss it with him, he gets very angry and refuses to talk about it.

Welcome to one of the most challenging phases of parenting—adolescence.
In all likelihood, your young teen is experiencing significant emotional, psychological and physical changes.
I played sports through my junior year of high school, even though I kinda hated sports and wasn’t particularly good at them. In my worst moment — and this is one of those humiliating teenage memories that is buried deep, deep, deep in my brain that occasionally pops up when I’m driving down the freeway to say, “REMEMBER WHEN YOU DID THIS FUCKING THING? ” — I took her to a high school dance who couldn’t go with her because he was grounded. We had strategies for how we’d eventually get women to kiss us — and, holy shit, dare we even speak of it? He’d be super smug, not letting on that he was, in all likelihood, still very bad at it.
But countless high school movies had told me that girls like jocks, so I kept it up until I realized I could work after school instead and use the money to go see more misleading high school movies. She moped about his absence the whole time, and I thought I was getting somewhere. The thing is, she’d said relatively early on that it wasn’t happening. And then when she didn’t change her mind, I’d decided she was evil and was toying with me. She was just dealing with a lunatic who couldn’t take a hint. Sex is a bigger deal to people who haven’t had it yet than it is to people who have.
