Losing your virginity is highly personal and, obviously, it's different for everyone.

Every experience is unique, even when it's not – but there are also a few universal truths that most girls and women feel after they have sex for the first time – consensually.

They're things you don't necessarily hear about, but they're nevertheless true – maybe not for everybody, and nobody experiences all of them, but you get what I mean, right?

Do you recognize any of these feelings?

You'll feel like you have a big neon sign on your forehead and an arrow pointing at your vagina.2

How?

Well, what does sex mean to you?

The traditional definition of virginity is probably what pops into your head, right?

The equation probably involves a penis, a vagina, and possibly a hymen, but see, that doesn't really take into consideration how guys feel.

Plus, what if you're a lesbian and your first time is with another girl?

What if you're a gay guy and your first time is with another boy?

If you have a hymen, that is.

It might have caused you some pain or you may not have felt anything.2

Either one is normal.

A little blood is normal, but many women don't bleed the first time they have sex.

Basically, there's no normal because just about everything's normal.
