Losing your virginity can be a big deal – or, it can be not so much of a big deal. Having sex for the first time is a little nerve-wrecking, a little uncomfortable and usually pretty awkward. You don’t know what you’re doing so it’s basically a learning experience. And while every experience is of course different, some things are generally the same.
So, what is it really like to lose your virginity? You probably shouldn’t expect a lovey-dovey, ooey-gooey romantic scene from a movie – instead, it might go something like this. Here’s what it’s like to have sex for the first time, as explained in GIFs:
You finally decide that you’re ready to “do it.”
You tell your boyfriend and he’s all:
You two try to figure out where you guys can do it without getting caught or in trouble.
Finally, you plan the perfect night to do it.
You start to get nervous… what is sex really like? Is it going to hurt?
You look it up on the Internet. OH GOD NO. It seems terrifying.
So you ask a more experienced friend for help.
Nothing calms your nerves. Why is losing your virginity SUCH a big deal?
The night is here. You and your boyfriend try to act like it’s no big deal, but secretly, you’re both a little anxious.
Condoms are hard!
You guys start hooking up and things feel a little… awkward.
Okay, ouch! Seriously, OW! Is it always like this?!
What goes where? How does this work? What… what is happening?!
You can’t help wondering what you look like in this position.
Thankfully, things improve as it goes on.
Afterwards, you’re both a little speechless. You finally lost your virginity!
But… it wasn’t, like, movie romantic. It was just… nice. A little awkward, but nice.
You don’t even feel that different. Is there something wrong with you?
NOPE. Congrats! Cuddle time!
