Some people choose to wait until they're married to have sex.
It might be down to religion, or simply that they feel it right and proper to wait until the night of their wedding to lose their virginity.
A handful of people have revealed what it's like to 'wait' to consummate their marriage. There's no denying, at least in western society, that most people become sexually active long before they tie the knot.
So it's quite interesting to read on Reddit social site about the experiences of men and women who had sex for the first time relatively late on...

"On our wedding night, he couldn't get the right angle to get in and had a premature detonation. I was too shy to help guide him in.
"He said "S***! I'm so sorry!" and then we went to sleep. Repeat for a few days until finally BOOM! It hurt for a second and it was over another second later.
"We've been married 10 years now, we're happy and have a good, healthy sex life. I think we're both rather easy going and found it rather funny. It helped that neither of us had high expectations that it was going to be magic the first few (50) times. We still tease each other about it now."
Openthread said : "My wife and I were both virgins when we got married. The first time was great and funny to look back on.
"I didn't even make it fully inside her before blowing my load but after 15-20 minutes we were right back at it and had better success.
"We went at it at least one other time that night and then were humping like rabbits as soon as we woke up the next day. So much sex that week..."
Poptartburner shared: "My wife and I both waited until marriage. Our first night was a disaster.
"We actually got walked in on by strangers while we were stripping in our hotel room because the hotel switched our room last minute and forgot to give the other couple a different key.
"It took me quite a while to get it up. I wasn't particularly nervous, I think the little guy was just shy. She said later she didn't even notice.
"I spilled the entire bottle of lube in the middle of the bed. Although it was kind of a disaster we were able to laugh about it and we still had fun and look back fondly on the night."
