Even if you use proper lubrication while having sex for the first time is there still a possibility that there will be a chance of tearing and bleeding and soreness?

yes. proper arousal is also quite necessary to get your vagina dilated for intercourse. there's also the awkwardness of inexperience, and that can make for a bit of a mess.

your vagina is lined with the same sort of tissue that lines your mouth. i'm sure you've cut your gums flossing every now and then. the friction afforded my vigorous sexual activity can cause some cuts and tears here and there. even people who have been having sex for a good long time spot a little blood sometimes.

so in spite of all this, it's important to relax (lest you aggravate any pain you may or may not feel) beofre having sex. many girls don't feel pain when they have intercourse for the first time. i, for one, didn't hurt afterwards.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the universe is constantly moving to a state of greater entropy s, therefore, delta s is always greater than zero.

in a word? yes. you are stretching all those muscles in ways which may not have been done before, and the possible result of that is discomfort, pain, bleeding, etc. no, this is not what definitely WILL happen. but it is a possibility, you know?

i think if you're getting all queasy about the possibility of a little pain, you need to look at whether or not you're actually ready to have intercourse.

check out this nifty sex readiness checklist to learn more about this stuff, it might be able to answer some of your other questions.
