1. “Even after we were married, I think I wasn’t ready. I don’t mean ready because I was scared, but ready because I had no idea what I was doing. All I need to say is that I should have googled “how to give a hand job” but luckily, he was my husband and he didn’t mind that I had absolutely no idea.”

2. “We snuggled in the bed and she told me to wait until she gets into something more comfortable. So, naturally, I thought she is putting on something sexy, but imagine my surprise when she came out of the bathroom wearing red PJs and lay next to me saying: “Well, this is way better!” I cracked up laughing and so did she. Needless to say, we had sweet sex twice that evening. It didn’t last that long, but it was just perfect.”

3. “It should have been a disaster. We were both sick. We got some kind of stomach flu and we barely made it through the ceremony. She was so beautiful even on the verge of throwing up. After it was done, we went to the room and we thought, naaah, no chance in hell we’re going to do it. But we did it anyway. It should have been a disaster, but it turned out to be just nice. And it wasn’t supposed to be that good the first time, so we didn’t wrap our minds around it. There is a plenty of time ahead of us to practice.”

4. “So, it was the most important night of our lives. We saved ourselves for so long to be finally together, physically. And guess what, he didn’t bring any condoms and there were no condoms to buy anywhere in our area. We were so frustrated and excited at the same time, so we did it anyway. I don’t have to mention that he didn’t get it out in time and nine months later….hello baby. I don’t regret it, not even for a second, but I will never tell my child it got conceived on our honeymoon because her dad forgot to buy the condoms.”

5. “No one told me it would hurt so much! I really saw stars and I thought that something was wrong with me. I thought I wasn’t cut out to have sex. He got scared, too. He stopped immediately and held me in his arms until we were ready to start all over again. Perfection takes practice and we practiced alright. I’m not scared anymore and it doesn’t hurt. We both figured out a few tricks and it’s better than ever.”

6. “Nobody’s first time is great. It confusing and it’s scary. I knew it was going to hurt and I was prepared for it. But I just couldn’t move that psychological barrier in my mind. In my opinion, we did more than okay for the first time. It took us a few hours because we were really getting down to business and the foreplay was just crazy. But, the most important thing is to sit when it’s done and talk about it. See what your partner wants and needs and try to do it next time. We did it and the sex only gets better and better.”

7. “Before we were married, she used something that looked like cheap dildos to stretch down there. She was very scared and anxious about our first time. I was, too, but I didn’t want it to show. I was so delicate with her the first time and I didn’t mind she was tight down there. I took my time and did things nice and slowly. After we were done, she woke me up in the middle of the night to do it once again. In time, we learned what runs our engines and we got so much better.”

8. “Just because you’re married, doesn’t mean the sex is going to be good. It was terrible and awkward. She was hurting so bad and the orgasm was nowhere to be found. But, we corrected that mistake in about half a year. You just definitely need more experience and of course, practice.”

9. “There should definitely be someone there in with you to tell you what to do, especially if the two of you are both virgins as me and my husband were. It was awful and I don’t know if I can even call it having sex.”

10. “It was our first time and I didn’t want to hurt her, so I took things slow. But even after the extensive foreplay and really carefully performed act itself, she was getting hurt, so we stopped. A few days later, we tried again and we did it a couple of times. It was nice, but not that great. People should definitely lower their expectations when they are about to lose their virginity because it’s not like in porn. It’s so much worse than that.”

11. “My story is kind of unusual. My wife and I went on a cruise and we had a cabin all to ourselves. Normally, we wanted to use it as soon as possible. So I packed us with condoms and we tried it. She was hurt, but just a little and the surprising part was that she finished and I didn’t. It doesn’t matter anyway. I wanted her to have the best experience of her life.”

12. “I have to say just one thing. It hurt like hell and I was pretty much just glad that it was over, to be honest.”

13. “It was scary as hell, but not because of the sex itself but because of the blood. I know that some women bleed more than others, but the sheets from our hotel bedroom looked like we killed a small animal. It was so freaky. I’m not planning on coming back there ever again.”

14. “What to do, when and how? Arrrgghhh, how stressful, the whole experience…thank God it only happens once.”

15. “She told me she was saving her virginity as a special gift for me. In the beginning, we were like two lost puppies. We had no idea what we were doing, but later on, we get the hang of it and we did it five times on every surface possible in the bedroom.”

16. “All I have to say, it was dry, but it is not anymore.”

17. “Lube was our friend that night. It didn’t hurt her so much and we laughed and genuinely had a good time. I have no idea how long it lasted, but I know it was beautiful. A really special experience totally worth waiting for.”

18. “We slipped into the Jacuzzi and the foreplay was amazing. But it kind of lasted longer because I think the both of us were so nervous and we didn’t want the foreplay to stop because that would mean we have to get down to business. We laid on the bed after the foreplay with the excuse that we were tired. But he woke up in the middle of the night and went for it. Later on, we admitted that we were both scared as hell. Today, we don’t have those kinds of problems :D”

19. “My hymen didn’t break that night and it hurt like hell, but instead we did a lot of oral sex that night and the real thing happened a few days later. So, not sorry for things happening the way they did and I would do it all over again if I could.”

20. “Our honeymoon night is the night when everything went south. We just didn’t click sexually and a few months later, I just had to go. Now that I’m not a virgin anymore, I do just fine and I think I’ve maybe met someone who clicked with me instantly.”

21. “She fell out of the bed and we laughed our asses off. Then we had sex, it lasted a second and a half.”

22. “You’re not born experienced and the point is that you have to learn to have great sex. My husband and I lay on the bed in a hotel and we did everything we’ve done before. We didn’t have sex because we were nervous and we didn’t know what to do. We were both virgins. But after a few nights, it started and it hasn’t finished since. 8 years after, we’re still together and we’re still doing it!”

23. “It took me much longer than I expected to come. Maybe I was in shock because we were both virgins and I was nervous about my performance. It took me ten minutes or so and she enjoyed it so much. She had stretched her hymen before the wedding and there was no blood. It was really beautiful but each next time, it’s so much better.”
