I thought of ev­ery­thing ex­cept…

Girlfriend - - GF ADVICE -

“I’d been with my girl­friend for two years be­fore we de­cided we were both ready for sex. All of my friends gave me crap for ages be­cause heaps of them had lost theirs al­ready and they didn’t even have a girl­friend. It both­ered me a bit, but more be­cause they were be­ing jerks about it, rather than the fact that I was a vir­gin. I re­ally care about my girl­friend, so I wanted to make it ex­tra spe­cial. I be­came so ob­sessed with mak­ing it ro­man­tic and perfect for her (like what you see in the movies), that I guess I went a bit crazy. My par­ents were go­ing away overnight for a wed­ding, so we had the perfect op­por­tu­nity. I to­tally cleaned my room and washed my sheets so they were fresh. I bought scented can­dles and roses so I could sprin­kle rose petals all over the bed. I even metic­u­lously planned a playlist of all of our favourite songs. I could tell she was pretty over­whelmed when she saw the set up, but she also said it was nice. I’d se­ri­ously thought of ev­ery­thing... that is, ev­ery­thing ex­cept con­doms. We were both pretty ner­vous, and then when she asked about con­doms, I freaked out be­cause I had ru­ined our perfect night. I’d put so much time and ef­fort into ev­ery­thing, and when it came down to it, I for­got the most im­por­tant thing! I had to ven­ture out in the worst rain and ride my bike to the su­per­mar­ket while my girl­friend was wait­ing in my bed­room. By the time I got back, I was soak­ing wet and stressed that I had ru­ined ev­ery­thing. We ended up hav­ing sex and, I have to say, I think I was so wor­ried about it be­ing perfect, I didn’t en­joy my­self at all. We’ve had sex since. Now that I don’t put that pres­sure on my­self, I en­joy it much more!” – Sam, 17.
