27 Things You Should Know Before You “Lose” Your Virginity

You probably remember hearing the rumor somewhere in the hallways of your middle school, maybe even before you were fully sure about what "sex" was: If you've got a vagina, the first time you have sex is going to be unpleasant and probably painful. Obviously this rumor is an incredible bummer, and it's one that's not fair. On top of all the other things our young middle school brains were already terrified of — like periods, armpit hair, and bras — introducing the concept of sex being painful seemed so cruel.
I was always warned growing up that it would hurt the first time I had sex. This was disappointing to hear, because I really looked forward to it and wanted my experience to match my excitement. I felt sad to think such a special moment would be tainted with pain — and angry to think my partner would get more pleasure out of it than me. When the moment came, I braced myself to "get it over with" and hopefully start enjoying sex one day in the future.
