There really is no way to candy coat this one. Ladies, having sex on the first date is an absolute no-no. It’s not “wrong” per se, but it shows a man that you don’t have enough self-respect or self-restraint to wait until you’re in a committed relationship to make whoopee.

This isn’t the ‘60s – there’s no longer such a thing as free love. These days, you have to worry about HIV and AIDS, Hepatitis B, Gonorrhea, Herpes and other STDs. If having sex didn’t come with potential consequences, we may be having a different conversation. A friend told me once that he doesn’t sleep with a woman unless he could imagine himself having a kid with her. Even when you think you’re being responsible, something like a broken condom can change your entire life – and more so for the female than the man.

Ladies, don’t give it away too easily. If you wait until a relationship that has mutual trust and admiration, then the first time having sex will be much more amazing.
