So today I lost my virginity and it hurt. I had forgot some things I had learned the previuos night from reading an article on here. My bf and I ended up reading over it so next time I can enjoy it [Razz] Something I came across was about not using enough lube. I know I get dry easily. I am 14 and want to know where am I going to get lube?! I would Love an answer. It would really help out my sex life! Thank you

You can usually find lube next to the condoms in grocery stores and pharmacies, or places like Target or WalMart. Just make sure to get one that's water-based, as anything oil-based will break down condoms.

A lot of condoms come pre-lubed too. Some have extra lubed (I know that Lifestyles makes a REALLY slippery condom), though, in 99% of cases, more lube is not a bad thing.

The lube that comes on condoms is generally not enough, though, to really alleviate pain with intercourse. Also, extra lube makes condoms less likely to break.

You know, I've always found lube to be fun! There are all these different kinds! And some are gel-ish and some are liquid and some of them are warming, and some taste good! Seriously, I love goin' lube shopping.

I don't know about where you live, but I can get a decent range of lubes at the chemist or the supermarket, and a dazzling range in adult stores.

Some lubricants are better than others. Personally, I think Astro is the best, but that's just me. You can even find companies offering free samples, that way you can find a brand you enjoy.

You want to be sure you're using a water based lubricant (especially with condoms). Miss Christine's suggestion of Astroglide is a good one (and welcome to ST Miss Christine), as are liquid silk and pink. First intercourse is a different experience for different women, but pain is something that can happen. And it tends to depend on the person and the experience what livel that pain is. Remember though too, you want to make sure you're really aroused, and taking things slow. And if you're finding you're in pain, letting your partner know that (and making adjustments for that).

The first time hurts for a lot of women. I do thoroughly recommend lube, it just makes things easier and a lot more fun. It's not nice being sore afterward.

I'm not sure if you get them wherever you are, but some shops have self service check outs. You can buy your lube among everyday things without funny looks from the cashier. [Smile]

I don't know if that bothers you, but I do it because I get self conscious about that kind of thing.
