I Hope Your First Time Was Fan-Freaking-Tastic

How was your first time? I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess it was quick/awkward/unmemorable/unfulfilling like it was for most of us. I’m not going to go into too much detail, but I will tell you that, in my case, there was a cat in the bed with us that I had a severe allergic reaction to, which in turn gave my boyfriend a panic attack. So, yeah. It was romantical. Too bad for me — and too bad for all of us, really. A new study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy found that the circumstances of losing your virginity may set the tone for the rest of your sexual life.

Research conducted at the University of Tennessee and University of Mississippi found that those who were most emotionally and physically satisfied when they lost their V-card found themselves with better sex lives in the long run than say, those who had to give their boyfriend a paper bag to breathe in immediately following coitus. “While this study doesn’t prove that a better first time makes for a better sex life in general, a person’s experience of losing their virginity may set the pattern for years to come,” said one of the lead researchers. This explains SO MUCH.  But just out of curiosity, I want to know who these people are who had such fanfuckingtastic sex the first time. Anyone? [Science Daily]
