5. Are You Comfortable With Your Own Sexuality?
Now that you know how your body will react from a anatomical standpoint, now it’s time to learn how your body will react from a pleasurable standpoint. Do you know how to please yourself? Do you know what you like, what you don’t like, what arouses you or what turns you off? You may want to spend some “alone time” with yourself so that you can feel comfortable with your own sexuality. Having sex for the first time can be an intense experience leaving you feeling nervous and anxious, so trying to become relaxed enough to actually enjoy it may be difficult. If you’re comfortable with your own body and sexuality, it’ll be easier to “let loose,” so to speak, and you’ll be able to communicate with your partner to ensure that you have an enjoyable first experience. Get comfortable touching yourself and seeing how your body responds so that there won’t be any surprises.
