ABSTRACT
Sex differences and similarities in first consensual intercourse experience were examined in a sample of Canadian university students and contrasted with the expectations reported by fellow students who had not kid intercourse. Among experienced students men and women did not differ on most measures used to assess pre-intercourse discussion, circumstances of first intercourse, and feelings and outcomes thereafter. A/though women, unlike men, commonly experienced pain at first intercourse (52%) and infrequently reported orgasm (11%) or physical satisfaction (34%), they did not differ from men in emotional satisfaction or overall rating of the experience. Women and men who had not had intercourse generally had similar expectations concerning topics that would be discussed before first intercourse but differed considerably in their expectation of pain and orgasm. The findings are discussed in relation to their implications for sexuality education and for a broader understanding of some ongoing gender differences in sexuality.
