What do men and women worry about when they have sex with a new person? A British online drug company, Superdrug, asked 1,212 males and 916 females what they feared most when “doing it” with someone for the first time.
Men’s biggest fear is that the other person has an STI, while women’s biggest fear is that the guy won’t wear a condom, and will give her an STI. (Our advice here: when a guy won’t wear one, you tell him “Put this on your wang, or we don’t bang.”)
The second fear of men was not giving an orgasm to/not satisfying the other person. This fear was followed by the dreaded fear of premature ejaculation. (Our advice here: slow down and don’t be so anxious to stick it in.)
For women, another fear is a broken condom, and a partner not taking “no” for an answer. Both men and women said they feared the other person “not finding your naked body attractive,” but women worried about it more than men did.
Fears that were lower on the list included men worrying that they can’t perform and women worrying that he will want to do something she’s not comfortable with. Our advice here: Discuss first before letting someone tie you up to the refrigerator.
