If a female feels: Pain, the amount of pain is variable. Isn't 16 young to give away something as valuable as your virginity? What i would say to prepare a couple to have sexual intercourse for the 1st time is that they are responsible not to have an undesired pregnancy. They are responsible also to ensure that they don't transmit std's. They are also responsible to educate themselves about sexuality before hand.
