Let's strip sexual activity of all it's damaging implications and bring it back to what it is: just sex. And if that pep talk isn't enough, how about this statistic?
We've done the research and here it is, straight-up: There's nothing wrong with having sex on the first date. A 2012 Singles in America survey found that 55 percent of singles reporting having had sex on the first date (66 percent of men; 44 percent of women).
Millennials especially are unencumbered by fears that may have held people back from having sex in the past, says Helen Fisher a biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser to Match, who helped develop the representative survey of more than 5,000 singles.“We have a real misunderstanding of Millennials,” she said.
We're so caught up in society's expectation of us that we disregard our own personal desires.
We're too busy trying to decipher what the other person is thinking that we don't listen to what we actually want.
With dating and hookup apps making it easier than ever to hop in bed, now the intimate part can often times be introducing a partner to friends and family.“We used to think of sex as you crossed the line now you are in an intimate zone, but now sex is almost a given and it’s not the intimate part," Anderson said.
"The intimate part is getting to know someone and going on a date.”And while 40% of singles have dated someone they met online, they don’t want technology to spill-over to the actual dates.

They're awkward, they usually involve some kind of drink or meal that you'd rather not share with a stranger, and there's always that hesitant question at the forefront of both your minds: Thanks to a lot of poodle skirts and antiquated ideas about dating, first-date sex has become a topic of controversy, with many of us still believing in the shameful stigma attached to it.
