First of all, have a look here: Is that all there is? A memoir of first time sex 17 years in the making

I suspect it might be a comfort for you right now.

Per the way you felt, I'm guessing you were just disappointed.

I don't know what your expectations for intercourse were, but if they were like the expectations of a lot of people, you expected something which is a LOT more choreographed, a lot less awkward, perhaps a lot more romantic.

That's normal, but not very realistic.

Sex is messy. It's often awkward, even to the point of being downright funny. It's rarely perfectly choerographed. In a word, it's human.

There really isn't a "right" position. When any two people just start feeling out both how sex between them works, and how their unique bodies fit together, it takes some experimenting, which really should be one of the fun parts. It also tends to build a good deal of intimacy if you let it. Over time, between you two -- or you and any other pertner -- it'll get less awkward and a good deal easier to feel out and do in such a way that you both feel more satisfied on all fronts, so long as you are willing to experiment, to communicate openly a lot, and have a realistic approach.

But making it picture perfect the second time? Eh, not so much. Third? Fourth? Twentieth? Maybe...maybe not.

One of the things about sex with a partner is that often, it just gets better and better as you go. Which is a real bomuc for staying with one partner for a while, but a bit more difficult if you're not feeling patient. [Smile]
