Looking for vaginal bleeding after first intercourse is not a reliable test of whether or not a woman was a virgin. Also, many healthcare providers feel that so-called “virginity examinations” – in which a woman is examined by a doctor prior to first intercourse – place unfair pressures and burdens on women.
Research studies are quite clear that sex workers – particularly those that are working illegally, which most sex workers in the US are doing given laws that prohibit exchanging sex for money – tend to be more likely to have sexually transmissible infections (STI) such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, and herpes.
My boyfriend and I have been together for a couple of months. I’m a virgin, but he isn’t, and I thought I was ready to sleep with him, but when we tried, as much as he tried to relax me and give me lots of foreplay, it was so uncomfortable that I actually tried to ignore what was happening down there.
Although most men and women in the US have tried oral sex, not everyone likes it and not everyone keeps doing it. If you and your husband don’t like oral sex, then it probably makes it easier that you both feel the same way. It can be more difficult when one person likes oral sex a lot and the other person in the relationship doesn’t like oral sex.
Though not having had intercourse by age 25 is less common these days, some people choose to wait to have sex until they find the right person, relationship or situation. There is nothing wrong with not having had vaginal intercourse by age 25.
Many young women and men have questions about having sex for the first time and losing one’s virginity. In regard to your question, it is indeed possible to experience vaginal bleeding from either fingering or penile penetration.
Do women always bleed the first time that they have sex? My girlfriend said that she had never had sex with anyone before, but then we had sex and there was no blood on the sheets. Does that mean that she was lying to me about being a virgin?
Going into my relationship with my boyfriend, I was a virgin and he was not. I had been told in the past by my gynecologist that I have a very small vagina. It has never been easy inserting tampons or even my boyfriend’s finger. Every time we’ve tried to have sex, he can’t get in me at all. What can we do besides try lube?
I’ve been with my boyfriend for about 6 months. I am his first girlfriend and he’s never had sex before. He hasn’t been able to reach an orgasm from a hand job, so I find a blow job the only way of pleasing him. However, it still takes him a while – sometimes nearly 45 minutes.
