Do Tell: Are There Any Sexual Encounters You Regret?

Sex can be a very impulsive act — I mean, that’s where some of the fun comes from — but that kind of passionate spontaneity can also lead to second-guessing later on. I’m a person who likes to believe that everything happens for a reason, and any mistake is just another lesson learned, but there are still things I regret. We can't take things back, but wouldn't it be nice if we could have a few "do-overs"? So ladies, do tell, which sexual encounters do you wish you could just delete from your permanent record?

haha, starting out having sex, I would count guys I'd slept with on my fingers. I hated what I called "wasted fingers"! Just like, guys who I slept with once of twice and it was either bad or unmemorable. But in time, the regret fades. I'm lucky I got out of it STI free, but since I did, it's all water under the bridge.

One month ago I went to my best friends party, we had a great night and we all got really drunk. On my way home my boyfriend and I had an argument in the taxi so I told the driver to turn around and go back to my best friends house. I was very distraught when I got there (things always seem worse when your drunk) and she comforted me, the next thing I know we where kissing and fondling. I cant remember actually how it started but I reciprocated. At the time is seamed OK but when morning came in the cold light of day I had major regrets. I felt guilty and disgusted with myself and violated to some extent. (my first ever girl on girl experience) Since that night I haven't had much contact with her and I feel like she is ignoring me as see wont return many of my texts and offers to meet up. I mentioned my regrets briefly and the fact that I was worrying about it in a text and she said not to worry about it. Despite this I feel like I could have lost my best friend. Can anyone give us any advice on what I should do to resolve this.

I originally said there was one sexual experience I wish I had, but retrospect, I'm glad it didn't happen. If it had happened, I doubt we'd be friends now.

Like some of the other girls, I regret the aftermath, not the sex itself. The thing is, if I took them back, I wouldn't know what I know, feel how I feel, you know? I learnt a lot from their douche-baggery, so no, I don't really regret them

I had a couple one night stands back in college. I don't even remember their names anymore, honestly. Part of me regrets them; another part of me doesn't. Those mistakes help me figure out that casual sex isn't for me, and I'm grateful for that.

One night, with a senior before our college vacations. Accidentally, my boyfriend rang up to bring all the embarassment. To this day I see this other guy hanging around with his new-found girlfriend and recall that night.

One time, it's not like we had sex but it's close (does hand job count as sex?). This boy was about to be sent to Iraq or whatever, and them army men were at my small town on a 'layover' or something. He was so charming and sweet hitting on me in a bookstore! I thought I'd try one of them 'one night stand' thing, with a guy who's about to leave for war or whatever. When we got into it, he didn't have any protection, and refused to buy condoms, or use any protection when I offered to get one from the store, so we couldn't do it and I gave him a HJ. Then after that, he tried to take my bracelet from me. He was so weird and intimidating trying to take my bracelet as a 'reminder.' So I left immediately and I still regret my being dumb for wanting to try 'one night stand' crap.

My first sexual encounter with my ex. We're great friends now, but we would have remained just friends if we hadn't slept together that one time.

I would love to take them all back actually. I just feel dirty for having done some of the things I did back in college. That was so not me at all. And the way that all those so called relationships turned out, it wasn't worth it.

yeah one particular encounter stands out...4th of july after my first yr of college...I was way too drunk and gave in to temptation on impulse. I was upset about it the whole week after, but i realize now that sometime we make mistakes and we learn from them

Two. I cringe just thinking about those guys. I choose to push those memories into the deepest recesses of my mind and never, ever, ever go there again.

Yeah, there were definitely some bad choices in college. I would honestly erase most of them, but- what can you do. Life goes on.

I guess I would say that I don't regret the person it was with, like JaimeLeah, but I regret doing it that soon. We never got to have any kind of romance in our relationship - it was all like, OMG PASSION - oh wait... that was sex, wasn't it? oops. It was both our firsts, and well, I wish a lot of things about that. Like, that it lasted more than 90 secs. :D Afterwards he didn't really see any reason to do anything romantic except for Valentine's Day (and that was last minute). And he almost always got straight down to business. He's better now, but still...our one year anniversary is next Friday, so maybe he will surprise me. Hopefully. Not really getting my hopes up... *sigh*

I have a lot of one night stands I would like to erase. It's not very appealing when a girls numbers of guys start getting higher, so I regret not having enough self control in the past. The best sex is within the intimacy of a relationship I believe now. =)

I would erase all encounters with one of my exes. All hormones, no feeling... The second time I was with him was really humiliating, we took our clothes off, he tied me to the bed then went in search of condoms. And first his brother, then one of the maids (over 60 yrs old) walked into his bedroom... Talk about deer in the headlights! I just asked him to untie me and called the chauffeur to drive me home. In hindsight, I'd erase all but my first time and what I do with my hubby. Then again, he's the best I've ever had, so it's unsurprising.

My first, he was just terrible. And a few one time hookups. I regret those because there would always be drama because they thought it meant we were dating. I would have been better off just flirting.
