Trivialized or sacred, the first time nevertheless remains an unforgettable experience. Between apprehension, fears, even pressure, it is impossible to forget your first sexual relationship.
So, this first time, are we talking about it?
Sexual intercourse: definition
These are sexual activities that may or may not lead to penetration, practiced by two or more people.
