Is first sex painful?

I've never had sex. My boyfriend of 8 months wants to get physical but I've developed a phobia for sex. Many of my non-virgin friends have narrated their horrifying first sex encounters. I want to know whether it really is painful or the pleasure of sex undermines it?

Its all depend on your hymen.See Hymen is a tissue that's filled with blood vessels that covers the part of vaginal opening. Hymens are vary naturally in thickness and how much of openings they cover. If your hymen is in smaller size then you get very less pain.
