This is a guide to having sex for the first time, or anytime. I think it is an adequate start but I've learned from all of you some excellent additions. Including something I think is very important to add, which is that your sexuality may not be in-line with the law and not breaking it could mean denying yourself some forms of sexual expression. In the words of terralynn9:
While I completely understand the reasons for #1: Don't break the law, I would maybe say instead: be aware of the laws where you live and the consequences if you're caught breaking them, consider the reasons for the laws (are they to protect you? why?), and if you and your partner choose to go ahead anyway, make sure to be safe, sane and consensual. It wasn't that long ago that anal sex was illegal in Canada and the US (even between straight people), and it still is in some places. Homosexuality is punishable by death in some countries, but I wouldn't counsel homosexuals there to never have sex, just to be very careful about it.
Here is a past video I think is very relevant to this topic: www.youtube.com/watch
