Having sex with someone new for the first time can be a little underwhelming. Let's face it, it can be awkward AF. But that doesn't mean that you'll always have awkward sex with that person, it just means you're still figuring each other out. “Typically, relationships are awkward in the beginning because you’re simply learning one another,” author and relationship expert Alexis Nicole White tells Bustle. “Although it’s often warm and fuzzy in the beginning, this is also the time when an individual must learn not only what to do but what not to do.” So give yourself some time to learn.
And staying within your comfort zone can help with that. It doesn't mean you can't have exciting, passionate sex, but it may mean that you don't want to be balancing on one foot with your ankle behind their ear right off the bat.

So staying with positions that are fairly easy to do, where you can really get to know each other, and learn to relax with each other can be a huge help.
