Emotions after first sex
Posted on: 12/16/2008
i was a virgin the first time i had sex with my boyfriend. later on that day i didnt wanna see him and i got a strange feeling. was that normal?
The emotions experienced after first sex are different for everyone, and the way each person handles their feelings is also different. Your reaction was your reaction - and I hope you followed your instincts. As you think back on the experience, maybe there are things you wished had happened or had been said, that you can talk to your boyfriend about. Another possibility is just you were not ready and the two of you should go slower.
