Create a plan

Also, you may want to decorate the venue and purchase all your supplies including condoms and lubricant.

Take your time and work slowly

The best piece of advice is that you set aside everything that you have heard and that you trust your intuition. Start with some foreplay and kissing. This will help prepare your bodies and release all the tension. There is no rush so it doesn’t matter if it takes you some time to get to the main event.

Put on protection

Before you engage in sexual intercourse make sure that you have put on some protection. Then, slowly start inserting your penis into your partner’s vagina to penetrate her. Be attentive to her cues and her remarks. It is also a big deal for her and she will be the same if not more nervous. Once both of you are comfortable, try rocking gently back and forward until you find a comfortable rhythm.
