The First Time

No one's first time is what everyone imagines it will be. We as a society put so much emphasis on the first time that it is nearly impossible to meet the expectations that accompany your first sexual experience.


You're very right about that. There are way too many expectations placed on the first time. For me, it was a lot different, because my best friend lost her virginity earlier than I had. These were her words: "The whole thing lasted about thirty seconds and it was over. I don't get what's so great about it." Of course, her opinion changed dramatically after the next few times, but hearing that made my heart fall. I'd been looking forward to this for so long, and that was all I was going to get: thirty second and unsatisfied? When I decided to have sex for the first time, I went into it with those let-down expectations, and I was happily proved wrong (my boyfriend was older, though, and a lot more experienced). Also, the idea that people place so much emphasis on people's virginity or lack thereof is really ridiculous. It is an individual's choice to have sex or not, and society shouldn't be advocating one choice or the other. It's sad to me that that story actually made the news at all.
