In a 1994 National Transportation Safety Board study it was found that "73% of all flight incidents occurred on a crew's first day of flying together, and almost half (44%) took place on a crew's very first flight." [Optimize]
This seems to be a reasonable corollary to first time sex. If you are with a partner for the first time you might be well served by studying these findings. Or at least be prepared to have the experience not be very good, or perhaps dangerous, if you haven't done the proper prep work with your partner.
Women Shun CondomsCosmopolitan had a poll last November which showed a marked decrease in condom usage among young women. The timing seems to imply a distinct effect of the events of 9/11/2001. I never had the opportunity, of course, to be with anyone back then but I can certainly see how unprotected sex might be a relief when it seems that the whole world has turned upside down. Maybe this is just a coincidence.
