Someone's in love...
And, it's me.
((And my boyfriend who's sitting here with me right now))
In fact, I've been in love with one great and *uniquely* considerate and loving guy for quite awhile. I've posted topics about our relationship before, but this topic holds a new development
My partner and I are very open with each other—in many ways. We are open with each other mentally, emotionally, and physically and there's absolutely nothing that we feel we can't share with each other.
Sex, well, anything sexual in regards to us, is something we easily and quite often talk about. Just about a month ago we had oral sex and it was a great experience. I was sort of nervous when it was about to happen, because it was my first time doing anything like that, as well as his. But, I got over that right away because we communicate so well and we love each other.
We were planning on holding off on sex for awhile, but we're both ready. And, we've decided. I don't think we'll be changing our minds. We have prepared and prepared over and over to make sure we are ready (a big thumbs up to Miz Scarlet's checklist + First Intercourse Article + other great resources of info)...We have read this site and other sites extensively, as we are responsible and curious individuals
Anyways, on 0ctober 6th, we've made reservations at a fancy hotel in San Francisco (the charge per night is $270!) and that night, we both want to share every single part of ourselves with each other.
We both agreed that there was a slight lack of spontaneity, but we both want our first time to be taken slow, and also free of interruptions. It would be really hard for us have to do otherwise, because we'd only get a maximum of 5 hours together. (Because of Parents, Siblings, etc)
The reason why I posted this in the first place is, well, for a couple of reasons.
1) I'm worried about the protection issue. Condoms will be used, and I am on birth control pills (for 3 months now), but of course, I think I should still be concerned.
(I posted about this before, and sorry for the repeat of questions, but I am just trying to get some reassurance.)
I realize no solid statistic or percentage can be given to me regarding the risk of pregnancy, but let's talk realistically.
In your opinion, do you think I'm just worrying too much? I just want to be safe as I can be.
2) Are there any tips/suggestions/comments, etc. that you could give me/us? I'm not looking for tips on sexual technique, but tips on the whole night itself. It's going to be very romantic and I'm not expecting a whole lot. We just want the both of us to be able to spend our time together and "share" ourselves, as opposed to "giving away" our virginities. Some stories + personal experience would be a big help, too
Wish us the best of luck and I hope all you are doing great
