At the senior graduation party, I sat on a couch with a beer in my hand, staring at the television, watching a muted commercial about Venus razors. From across the room, Joel had spotted me and made his way over to where I was sitting. He didn't seem as drunk as his friends were, which made me glad. It amazed me that he'd decided to talk to me now — we'd barely exchanged five words in the years we were in school together. But he was such an eye-catcher. He had dark brown hair that would reflect blond in direct light, with these dark green eyes. And he always wore a band T-shirt — Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, etc. His punk-rock look attracted me to him even more.

We began flirting, and after a moment of looking at each other, he lightly placed his hand on my hip and began caressing my neck. I, being a little buzzed at this point, grabbed his waistband and pushed him up against the arm of the couch. In reaction to half my hand down his pants, he placed his left hand on my check and roughly kissed my mouth. Our tongues were like waves in a hurricane. I had yet to tell him I was a virgin. For about two minutes, we made out with each other, me feeling the fabric of his underwear and a little bit of his pubic hair.

Hearing our classmates laughing in the living room, we quietly tiptoed to the bathroom...

He stopped and stood up, grabbing my hand, and we made it up the stairs to a guest bedroom. I lay on the full-sized bed and spread my legs, tracing my fingers on my stomach. He locked the door and walked over to me, standing there with a bright smile on his face. "You're beautiful," he said, and I thanked him. I stood up and pulled his belt off, throwing it across the room, then unzipped his pants, kissing his chest as he held onto me, pulling off my shorts and my T-shirt. (In our yearning for one another, he accidentally ripped off the clasp to my bra — I had to use a stapler to keep it on when I left.) He carefully laid me down back on the bed, and at that moment I said, "I'm a virgin."

He stopped for a moment, thinking, then said, "That's fine, we'll do it in the shower." I took a blanket and wrapped it around the both of us. Hearing our classmates laughing in the living room, we quietly tiptoed to the bathroom. He turned on the shower and I dropped the towel, then placed my arms around his waist. The cold water hit me hard but it didn't deter me from what I wanted.

He spread my legs and I gripped the railing in the shower; I could feel the warmth of his face. I titled my head back and felt my heart beating faster as he gripped my thighs, continuously licking like my vagina was a ice-cream cone. Then he carefully picked me up and I wrapped my legs around his waist. As I'm a pretty short girl, I rested my bum on the railing. Joel grabbed his stiff penis, and I wrapped my arms around his neck.

"All right, if it starts to hurt too much, tell me and I'll stop," he said softly. I nodded and with no trouble at all, got it in. At first, it felt like someone had lodged a knife into me, but as he began moving up and down, I laughed at the pleasure of it all. As he began going faster, I placed my hand in the middle of his back, feeling his spine moving in and out. "Oh, fuck!" I screamed really loud and he laughed as he merely went faster. My butt hit the railing harder and harder until, at the moment that he came inside me, it broke and fell on the floor of the shower. There was silence for a brief moment and I suddenly burst out laughing. Joel did too. He helped me back up and I leaned against the shower wall, pulling him towards me as we stood there, holding each other and trying to calm down again.

I then held his hand as he turned off the shower and we grabbed the towel to sneak back into the guest bedroom. We got dressed and walked back out into the party as if nothing had happened. Thankfully, I didn't end up pregnant. But I value my experience with him and the intense pleasure I got out of it. My affair with Joel ended about a week later, but he definitely taught me the basics of what I needed to do to give my body pleasure — to appreciate my desires and myself.

This sounds so fake.

Sep 14 10 - 12:31am
Um, yeah...

If I felt like "someone had lodged a knife into me" I don't think I'd "laugh at the pleasure of it all".

yeah, too good to be true. My first time hurt like hell, despite the fact he had a relatively small prick.

wow, I feel lucky. My first time was awkward and inept, certainly, but not at all painful. And even with the perspective of ten years of experience behind me, he still ranks among the nicest cocks I have known. :) good times, good times.

Why, why are so many of these so so fake. This was written by a guy, and an unimaginative one at that. Seriously, just kill this feature before it gets any more fake.

this is the first one that I've actually thought was fake, but yeah, deffo fake, too porno like.

I call bullshit on this one, sir. Bull. Shit.

Fake fake fake. she would have to be 30lbs for a shower rail to hold and support her. Nothing goes in 'with ease' in that position, and it's unlikely that an 18 year old woman can be so sexually casual and suave and still be a virgin.

How do you "lodge a knife?" Get it a hotel room? Not only fake, but terrible writing.

I like this "My First Time" section, and in its defence not all the stories are (or at least look) fake.

But this one sure does sound fake. Dissapointing man.

I usually love these but COME ON! This one is complete bullshit. If you're going to print fake stories at least make them well written :/

I had to stop reading this one halfway in. LAME!

I am beginning to believe that these are written by laid off penthouse writers

I'm tending to agree with the consensus that this one is fake
but to be fair, I lost my virginity at 17 (almost 18) and it was relatively casual for me.
It was entirely because I was comfortable with my sexuality and knew what I liked and what I didn't, but I'm just saying it's not impossible to be sexually unafraid and still a virgin.

I don't usually think these are fake (at least not entirely), but this one is ridiculous. I can't believe something so horribly written and obviously imagined was even published.

My first time hurt like hell....and I'm a guy. We came and scratched the hell out of back and then pushed me off. Totally lame! At the time I felt like a had accomplished something but being an adult now I realize it was something that never should have happened. I think I more realistically lost my virginity about 2 years later.

*She came....not we came....super lame

This story wants me to believe that an 18-year-old virgin achieved standing up in the shower sex? I still can't pull this off, and I left behind my virgin and 18 year-old days a long time ago.

I've read all of the My First Time entries and this one just screams FAKE. It's way too salacious to be real.

I am tempted to write one up and send it to see if they'd put in a real story. Most of these seemed to fantastical to be real. I'd love to read your standard awkward first time. I know mine was under the right circumstances, but it was not "amazing" in anyway. It sorta sucked.
