Female virginity is often regarded so highly in our culture, but only up to a certain age that some people deem acceptable. In this week's Sex Talk RealnessCosmopolitan. What is your current relationship status?
When my boyfriend and I tried to have sex for the first time he couldn't penetrate me even though he was fully erect. I have not had sex before but he has. How could this have happened and how do I overcome it as all sorts of silly ideas are going round in my head!
When a woman experiences pain during sex for the first time, it could be because of a variety of factors. If your hymen is still intact, you may experience pain and a bit of bleeding as it stretches during intercourse. The hymen is a thin tissue that may either partially or fully cover the entrance of the vagina.
The first time you have sex can be overwhelming. A big part of the equation is making sure your partner is comfortable. Being nervous will only cause tension, making it it that much harder to concentrate on the positive physical sensations. No one wants either of you to be experiencing anything other than excitement and pleasure, and for your first time, it should bring all that.
Losing your virginity can seem scary, and the range of myths surrounding it doesn't help. While some women may experience pain during their first experience with penetrative sex, you do not have to have a bad time. Talking to your partner and understanding how sex works can help you relax beforehand.
