In brief: Usually not pleasant

Great sex for virgins is mostly a concept found in books with sexual content.
To be good at having sex, it takes practice and trial and error. Most women report that their first time was painful and not at all pleasant. For men its not usually painful, but it is not much more pleasant than masturbation. Being emotionally and mentally prepared with a loving partner improves the experience.
