What we say:
Sometimes, your first time having sex may not work out as you planned. It may take a couple of times before you both feel completely comfortable physically, even if you have talked things through beforehand. Making sure there is lots of foreplay and using lubrication can help things along. For more information, see our How to have Sex
page and our Condoms and Lube
