Hi Anon

Thank you for your post and welcome! 

Do you still have your hymen? Many women don't, even though they are virgins. 

But if your hymen is still intact, it's not really going to "hurt" when you have sex - you may not even feel it. The hymen is a very stretchy thin layer of skin. Sex can be uncomfortable for some women on the first time but definitely not at all. 

Do not use lidocaine on yourself, this is a numbing agent that you do not need. You should not have to numb yourself in order to have sex. 

You should use a sexual lubricant though - you can find these at any pharmacy. 

Don't read up too much about sex for the first time - there are a lot of untrue stories out there!  Sex is wonderful when the time (and the person) is right. Make sure you use a condom, too!
