From Sexual Happiness in Marriage: A Christian Interpretation of Sexual Adjustment in Marriage, by Herbert J. Miles, Ph.D. Copyright 1967.
Couples should face the fact that complete sexual success on the wedding night is nearly impossible, but this is nothing to worry about. What usually happens in first intercourse is that nine times out of ten, the husband has an orgasm and the wife does not. In order to think it through, let us assume that this happens. Then what? The bride must not feel that there is something wrong with her, that she is undersexed. She is not. God is efficient. He does not make mistakes….
Suppose neither the husband nor wife knew how to swim and a teacher gave them oral instruction on how to swim. Does this mean they could jump in the water and and swim naturally in the first attempt? Naturally not! They would sink. They would sink many times before they learned how to swim well.
Thus, a couple should not be discouraged if first intercourse is not completely successful. But rather, they should laugh at their “goofs.” Each time they “goof” (and they will do this many times across the years) they can simply laugh and say, “Well, we goofed tonight, but we learned something and we will do better next time.”
