Practice, Practice, Practice!

Before you ever kissed someone, you probably worried that you'd be bad at it. This is why so many people have stories about making out with their own hands.

Not surprisingly, a lot of people have the same worries about sex. Here, we can take a lesson from sports. (No, it's not about bases.) Practice, practice, practice.

You don't know much about sex at the beginning. That's OK. There's no sex bible. That's because it's totally subjective. Good sex is what feels good to you.

If you've left the bed feeling let down, try, try again! Figure out what it was that made you disappointed. Never quite gotten the hang of being on top? Experiment the next dozen times you do it. Have no idea what you're doing when it comes to oral sex? Take the time to explore. Most people appreciate lovers who take their time and think creatively. You're in no hurry (unless you're in an elevator). There's plenty of time to learn and grow.
