When starting a new relationship with someone, it’s always tricky deciding when to have sex for the first time. While for many people it is something that simply occurs organically within the progression of the relationship, for others it is based on a personal rule or principle that they aim to apply to each new relationship (we’ve all heard about the three-date rule).
