Dman, that might depend on the region of Europe. The guys from the Balkans I've met were so fastidious they'd put cats to shame.

Careful there Peebs. I know someone who got pregnant while nursing.

I hear that stereotype a lot, usually it's attributed to the lack of circumcision in Europe since it's not as culturally pervasive there. In my up close and personal experience with penises of both the circumcised and uncircumcised varieties, there's no indication that Europeans or uncircumcised men are less hygienic.

I never said anything of the sort - 'twas actually just looking for a fitting analogy to differentiate the well, cut from the uncut.

In this day and age, using hygienne as a reason to butcher is a kind of silly notion.

Watch out for the "you can't get pregnant while you are nursing" baby. I know two of those.
Don't worry, we're still using precautions. And to be on the safe side, since I don't have a period yet to let me know, I've even taken a couple of pregnancy tests. Both negative.

And why does "my period hasn't come back" = "we're not using contraceptives" anyway? Xanthine commented on that too.

Probably because even people that should know better make that mistake...

I'm glad you're taking precautions Peebs. Kids are great, but having them too close together isn't very healthy for you.

Any recommendations for chemical birth control? I'm thinking the ease of the patch or the shot would be nice. I'm horrible at taking pills, and on my schedule, even if I remembered, I wouldn't be able to take them at the same time every day.

Oh right. And I'm on Wellbutrin XL, which is contraindicated for some kinds of birth control, but I forget which. I don't really want to give up the Wellbutrin 'cause it's done wonders for me, but Jonathan and I don't want to have children for another two or three years.

I'm personally on the pill, but the patch would seem easier than going in for a shot. Just put it on rather than schedule an appointment, take time out of your schedule, etc.

From what I heard, the shot usually completely eliminates your menstrual cycle altogether. Some women don't like this because they don't have their normal schedule to know all is well, and they think it's weird. YMMV, I'm not a woman.

I've heard differing opinions on the patch. Most of the women I know on the patch said it burned for the first few days, but after that, it was wonderful -- and it didnt come off in the shower, while swimming, during hot sex, etc. [Razz]

Rhonwyyn, hear the voice of the master of obvious: that's what pharmacists are for. Asking one will give you a much better answer that asking us. (Unless there is a pharmacist around?) And I trust it's the same in the US as in Canada, and they are professionnals who take an oath to professionnal secrecy. Just make sure the one you talk to has a valid diploma! [crazy]

(Or a doctor. You'll probably want to see a gynecologist beforehand anyway.)

Pharmacists haven't been much help in my experience... they're just their to dispense medication, not give advice, but maybe that differs according to where you live.

In any case, I do have an appointment with the doctor who prescribed the Wellbutrin next week. I'm finally undergoing that wonderful test that all women are supposed to get at age 18 or when starting sexual activity. I'll talk with her then about birth control, but I figured it'd be good to gather information before going in so I can at least have some idea of what's what beforehand. (I.E., I won't spend the appointment going "Huh? Eww. It does WHAT?!" [Razz] )

I'm Mennonite, Max, not Catholic or Amish. [Wink]

And besides which, neither Jonathan nor I trust ourselves to abstain from sex completely during the 8-10 day window when I'm most able to get pregnant. [Razz]

Technically, that's correct. In practice, the "conscience clause" issue keeps popping up. Apparently, the APhA thinks it's acceptable to refuse to dispense certain medications (including, but not limited to, birth control) because it conflicts with your religious or moral beliefs.

I sent a p/m overview of hormonal birth control options, but I forgot to add that hormonal birth control shouldn't be used if you smoke or have a history of blood clots.

That and bodies sometimes play tricks on you.

And Rhonnie, just an FYI, do not react with anything other than delight the first time he disrobes. Trust me. No amount of education is going to fully prepare you, and nothing will ever unruffle his feathers if you aren't in ectasies over the sight . I know I don't know Jonathan, but boy parts are weird, and boys are weird about their parts. A few good compliments will go a long way in this department, even if he is secure about his manhood, and that just makes everything about sex easier.

And if you must say something about size, stay away from any comments that could be construed as small. That is also a bad bad scene.

Please file that away. I wish I had had that advice once. It would have made certain aspects of my first relationship go so much smoother. They really don't get over it, and if he's got any tedency towards insecurity he will hold your initial reaction against you forever.

It goes the other way too, guys. Being naked in front of someone is a very vulnerable position. Treat each other with care. The joy in sex is a mental game.

Xanth, thanks for the advice! I will definitely keep it tucked away for later.

It's weird, but I've seen naked men (like my dad and my uncle and infants whose diapers I was changing) and was totally disgusted by them (the adults, that is); however, the more I love Jonathan, the more I want to see him--all of him--and I'm actually looking forward to our wedding night, not dreading it. I mean, I've always throught fellatio was thoroughly disgusting, but here of late I've found myself wanting to do it.

I never realized how much loving someone can change your perspective on things, and that's without him trying to convince me to change my mind! [crazy]

Yeah, but love him or not, boy parts get even weirder when the boy is excited.

Well, at least by that point they're not saggy and wrinkly! [Razz]

If he's a virgin too, don't expect too much the first time. A lot of guys do get nervous, and either get too excited or overthink what they are about to do and lose their erection the first time. I'd say just be understanding and reassuring and try not to show disappointment, and don't take it to heart or think there is something wrong with you if it happens. If you are on a hormonal method of birth control, you can at least avoid condoms complicating that further.

[/QUOTE]Bingo.


#2: Having a child and/or sex *does not* change a woman's 'tightness'. Not even remotely. For one thing, researchers have been trying for years to create anything with the elasticity and resilience of a woman's vagina. To date, they haven't come close. Nothing can retract like they do, and then return to such a small size. Stories about girls being 'loose' is more a play on words from years ago, and not a physical description. It's actually found from what I recall, a woman's tightness can actually have more to do with two things: A) how often she exercises those muscles (kegals, sex, masturbation), and B) her weight. Apparently overweight womens bodies exert more pressure on their nether regions, and thereby cause the muscles to lose some of their strength.

[/QB][/QUOTE]
Okay, I have DEFINATLY noticed changes in tightness. Especially my friend. My friend was a pretty heavy masturbator [crazy] and she was um.... well, she didn;t try to hard to make things fit, u know what I mean. Like, her areas were at the least
'welcoming'.
She hasn't been masturbating for about a year and a half, and hasn't had sex since June. Now, even tampons are painful.
What does that say ?

That says she needs to relax while inserting tampons.

I would say more but that would be crossing way over the TMI line.
