“In case you need to get out of there,” she said. “And here is a little money. Get to a pay phone and call us if it goes bad.” I nodded and hugged her for taking care of me.
Their car was nice, not an old clunker like I’m used to. It had a chime inside that let you know when the door was open. I never heard one of those before. The backseat had seatbelts. They made me put them on! This was all very new to me. It was quiet inside and it rode so smooth!
“This car is nice!” I said loud enough for them to hear me.
Janice turned around smiling and talked in a normal voice, “Ronni, you don’t have to shout in here. This is a Lincoln.”
“A Lincoln,” I repeated not having a clue as to what a Lincoln was, the man sure, but a car? She nodded. I rubbed my hands on the seat. It was plushy and soft.
“I lost my virginity in one of these,” Janice said, then laughed.
“That was a while back,” Greg said and laughed. She poked his shoulder with her fist. Virginity, that’s something I haven’t given much thought to. I mean, I call performing fellatio for the first time ‘losing my mouth virginity’ but that’s just pretend.
The seatbelt buckle was big and I could open it real quiet like. I slid forward in the seat and I got up close to Janice. “What’s that like?”
Her head jerked around. “Are you asking about losing your virginity?” I nodded. She looked at Greg. “She’s…”
“Go on and tell her,” he said.
I put my arms on the back of the front seat. Janice turned and looked at me. “It stings a bit,” she said.
“Not that part,” I said, “I want to know what it’s like.”
“I was scared,” she said. “Plus, I didn’t know what he was doing down there. In the back of my mind I knew that we were going to screw, but I had no idea what was going on with his penis and my vagina. All I wanted was for him to gaze into my eyes and love me, which didn’t happen by the way.”
“That sounds so sad for your first time.”
“He didn’t know much, either. He wiggled between my legs and pushed himself here and there until he found it. It hurt! I’ll never forget the grin on his face. It stung as he pumped me. I thought to myself, ‘is this how it’s going to be with all men?’ I didn’t know. Anyway, I guess the part you want to hear is if I saw those Cinderella fairy-dust sparkles. The answer to that is no. It was not very pleasurable.”
“Was it dirty and sweaty, because that’s how I always imagined it, hard and raw, you know, and clawing skin and stinky, and like fighting each other with your sex parts until the heat just boils over.”
“Just listen to porno girl back there…” Janice said but she got interrupted.
“Woah! Girl! What an imagination you have! No, all that doesn’t come along until you get good at it, only until you find the right partner. The key to successful sex is having the right partner, and it is never great the first time. It takes practice, AND when you get older!” Greg said.
“I never imagined all that when I was your age,” Janice said. “I wish I had!” she said and laughed. “My first time? I could have laid there and sang a song or something for all the joy I got out of it. He shot off and then pulled out and that was the end of my first time. Although at that time, I had no idea what ejaculation was.”
“I know what it is,” I said. Why did I say that? That was dumb. They exchanged a look. Did they know?
