2. Are You REALLY Ready?
Spirituality aside, are you emotionally and mentally ready to have sex? For most women, sex and emotions cannot be separated – it’s how we’re wired. We release a bonding chemical called oxytocin during sex that can leave us catching feelings if we’re not too careful. If you’re not sure if he is worthy of the honor of deflowering you, or if you’re not clear of your feelings towards him, you should wait. Sex should feel special between both partners, especially for the first time – not like just something to do or get it over with. If you haven’t fully considered the emotional ramifications of having sex with a man who may not share or reciprocate your feelings, then you may have some regrets if you have sex prematurely.
