A woman shouldn’t feel pressured to have sex with a man until she’s ready. She should feel comfortable being with him in an intimate setting. There should have been some conversation as to their sexual needs and desires, so she’ll know if they’re sexually compatible.
In a new relationship the first encounter should be at the woman’s place or at a hotel, not at a man’s place. A woman would be more relaxed and less nervous in her comfort zone. Every woman must have her own personal stash of condoms, lube, etc. She should never leave that responsibility to a man to bring protection. The man should want to make it a memorable experience for her. Starting with a romantic date; dinner and dancing would be a good choice.
