While weddings are all about celebrations, it is also one of those occasions where there is no escaping the stress.

Especially, the bride and the groom. Despite preparing for the event quite in advance, the D-Day might turn quite unpredictable.

And when the much-anticipated wedding night arrives, the newly-weds get the first opportunity to know each other closely.

Excitement coupled with fear of the unexpected can make anyone nervous.

Especially, men who had never spent intimate moments with a woman may definitely need some tips before his wedding night.

So, here are a few things that would help a man ease his nerves before he spends his first night with his wife.

1. It’s important to know the person better and ask for consent

While you might be thinking about sex but it’s always better to know what the other person wants and ask for her consent. She might not be ready to have sex on the first night and given the circumstances, both of you might be tired. Remember, you cannot enjoy having sex unless both are on the same page.

2. Personal hygiene and grooming is important

We know that not many men pay attention to personal hygiene and grooming. According to a survey conducted by Philips India, women prefer well-groomed men over good-looking ones. But you don’t need a study to tell you that no one likes a stinky person, right?

3. You may not get an erection

This is one such day when you want to do everything perfectly. But you should not be embarrassed if you don’t get an erection. This is quite common. Commonly known as performance anxiety, it might be the result of excessive stress and fatigue. So, don’t be disheartened because the more you worry about it, the more difficult it would get for you to enjoy the moment. The key here is to relax and let things be.

4. You may ejaculate too soon

Yes, we can guess how embarrassing it might be for a man when he actually has a climax earlier than anticipated. You don’t have to apologise for your premature ejaculation. Your timing will get better with practice.

5. Don’t blame yourself if your better half doesn’t get an orgasm

If you don’t already know how tricky female orgasm can be, you need to prepare yourself for that. If you are having sex for the first time, you would obviously want to make it a memorable experience for your wife a well. In case, she does not have an orgasm, don’t blame yourself for it. Because a woman might not orgasm every time she has sex.

6. Wedding night is not merely about sex

Thanks to all the Bollywood movies we grow up watching, most people believe the first is all about giggling relatives, a glass of milk and sex. This is far from the truth. In fact, a lot of couples never have sex on the first night. So, don’t be disappointed if you don’t end up making love as planned.
