You Will Need

  • A willing partner
  • A comfortable place
  • A plan
  • Some towels
  • Some lubricants
  • A little self-restraint


  1. Step 1

    Choose a partner

    Pick the appropriate person to be your partner—you don't want to surrender your precious gift to the first "playa" who smiles your way.

  2. If you're embarrassed by your inexperience, choose another first-timer, so you're on equal footing. If you want to make up for lost time, choose an older partner who's "been there, done that."

  3. Step 2

    Pick a location

    Pick a location that will be comfortable and secure for both of you, then make sure it's presentable—nobody likes a skanky love shack.

  4. Things could get messy; place a towel or two in strategic locations so you don't lose any momentum when the action heats up.

  5. Step 3

    Make yourself presentable

    Make yourself presentable too—nobody likes a skanky lover, either.

  6. Step 4

    Wear convenient clothes

    Wear clothes that come off easily. Once you get the green light, you don't want anything slowing you down.

  7. Step 5

    Get birth control & condoms

    Get your birth control in order—make sure you have fresh condoms on hand and anything else you may need.

  8. You may also want to have some lubricant on hand in case first-time jitters leave one of you high and dry.

  9. Step 6

    Set the mood

    Set the mood—a little atmosphere goes a long way.

  10. Step 7

    Welcome partner warmly

    Welcome your partner warmly; make sure they know they're the most important person in the world to you.

  11. If your partner is nervous, tell a bad joke, perform a stupid trick, do anything to make them laugh. If you're nervous, talk about your fears and reservations with your partner—clear the air with some good old-fashioned honesty.

  12. Step 8

    Pick your moment

    Wait until everything's going smoothly and the two of you are really clicking then make your move.

  13. Don't try any funny stuff: no sex toys, no crazy positions. You just got the training wheels off, now's not the time to go burning rubber and popping wheelies.

  14. Step 9

    Take it on home

    Now go get 'em, Tiger—it's smooth sailing from here on out.

  15. A recent study found that 26% of people between the ages of 75 and 85 are sexually active.
