There's a ton of questions of AskMeFi along the lines of "I'm a virgin, about to have sex for the first time. Help!"
Well, I'm (a guy) about to have sex
Most of the question, really, is above the fold. We've recently started seeing one another, we're both in our 20s, and, though we haven't been very physical yet, she's told me already that she wants to soon start having sex. Obviously, I'm letting her set the pace, and am not pushing her to do anything before she's comfortable - but, once things happen, I really don't know how to best navigate this situation.
As far as she's told me, she's never really been physical with anyone, ever. I, on the other hand, was also a fairly late bloomer, and have only been with women who were already pretty experienced. So I really have no knowledge of what sex is like for women when they're just first beginning to explore.
Basically, I want to know how to make this as easy, low-stress, and fun for her as possible. I want to know how much her first time is likely to be painful, and how to minimize that, however possible. And I want to know what misconceptions or fears she might have that I should address before we start.
