SO… I just got back from my honeymoon, and wanted to tell you girls who are waiting, that it was definitely worth waiting for. 🙂
Sex is awesome… it’s so much fun! Like everyone else has said, it was NOT perfect the first time… or the second… or the third… in fact, each time has been a little different, but the first time was really great (even though it was kind of painful at first). With time and patience and lots of talking/honesty, it’s been getting better and better.
***Ok… so here’s some Too Much Information that i honestly wish someone would have told me before***
Everyone told me that it would hurt the first time and it did initially. I actually cried, and we stopped. After I relaxed, and tried to not focus on the pain, it actually felt pretty good. BUT, we kept going, used lots of lube, and after the third/fourth time, it wasn’t painful anymore. What people didn’t tell me is that it would be a smart idea to wear old underwear afterwards because you bleed a little and all the… ahem… fluids… flow back out. Too Much Information and gross, but no one told me that!
Also, I ended up icing my downstairs parts on the second day because everything was kind of sore. I probably didn’t have to, but it made it feel better. 🙂 Also, don’t try to be a superhero couple and have sex a ton of times on the first few days. We tried to just because we thought we were supposed to be doing it ALL the time, but in the end, I was just more sore, and my Fiance was exhausted haha… poor guy. 🙂 So, really, once a day, maaaaybe one day where you do it twice the first week, and that’s more of a realistic expectation of what is both comfortable, and doesn’t totally kill you.
When people say you have sex on the honeymoon all the time, don’t think that means you need to do it 5 times a day every day. Do what’s right for you both. If you’re tired, he’s tired, you don’t feel like it… don’t do it. Don’t do it because you’re on your honeymoon and are “supposed” to. Now that we’re getting into the swing of it, we could totally do it twice a day if we have the time. Just those first few days of getting used to it, don’t overdo it!
If you have questions, feel free to PM me. I really am glad we waited, and would love to help others have great first experiences too!!
