Jane the Virgin Michael Sex

Jane the Virgin Recap: Jane (Finally!) Gets It On — Was It Good for You?

You can still call her Jane… but you can’t call her a virgin anymore.

After two-plus seasons of waiting, the heroine of The CW’s Jane the Virgin finally handed in her V-card on Monday’s episode, as Jane and her new husband Michael consummated their nuptials with a passionate night in their new home. (C’mon, Jane’s already had a baby and gotten married… this was long overdue, right?)

Jane the Virgin Michael SexBut first, the newlyweds had to endure a little more waiting. The Narrator teases us at the start with a title card reading “2 Days Earlier” and the sound of Jane and Michael grunting and moaning. (Jane even yells out, “Be gentle with my box!”) But it’s not what you think: He’s just helping her pack up her stuff for their big move-in together. They’re still staying chaste, since Michael’s doctor told them last week he can’t have sex while he’s recuperating from his gunshot wound.

After getting the green light from Michael’s doctor to do the deed, though, he and Jane sprint to their new house — “Trust me, it’s not gonna take long,” he promises her in the elevator — only to find Rogelio and a team of interior decorators already there, ready to revamp the place. Michael suggests that he and Jane take it out back to the shed, but Jane’s not that desperate: “I am not having sex for the first time in a shed!”

They wait patiently for the decorators to clear out, but then Xiomara and Alba barge in to interrupt, and Jane and Michael agree to try again later on, after Jane works on her writing thesis. (Jane is interviewing Alba for her romance novel, using the webcam on her laptop.) That night, Jane and Michael finally find some alone time and hop into bed together.

Jane the Virgin RecapShe admits to being a little nervous, but he reassures her: “I want it to be perfect, for you.” They exchange I-love-you’s, and then… it’s happening! The Narrator pops in to say, “Friends, I can’t show you what happened next, but…” And we see a cartoon rocket ship with Jane and Michael inside blasting off into the sky. Must’ve been great, right?

Well, maybe not. Because afterwards, when Michael asks Jane how she feels, she says, “Good! I feel good.” But she’s not very convincing. She later confesses to Lina that she faked her orgasm so she and Michael could finish at the same time. She tries to spice things up with him by donning blue lingerie and whipping out some “Sexy ‘n’ Wild Gel,” but that goes horribly wrong, too. (Jane: “It feels like wasabi down there!”)

Plus, she has a more embarrassing problem to deal with. When Jane opens her laptop, she realizes that the recording of Alba she sent to her writing advisor is actually… a sex tape of her and Michael’s first time! (She accidentally sat on the computer and turned on the webcam before things got hot and heavy.) The professor is a little scandalized, but she also thinks that Jane’s virginity explains a lot: “That’s what’s been missing from your writing. Romance without sex is just… fantasy stuff.”

That’s when Jane tries to get in touch with her inner seductress — helped by a vision of Alba’s deliciously evil sister Cecilia, also played by Gina Rodriguez — and rev things up with Michael. But nothing works, and Jane decides to stop pushing when a nun version of Cecilia reminds her, “Sexual pleasure is not the most important thing. What’s important is the connection between two souls.”

Michael storms off when he finds out Jane told Lina about their sexual problems, and Jane cries to Xiomara, feeling conflicted about losing her virginity. (“Like I lost something… like a part of my identity.”) Xiomara tells her that she actually gained something, though: “You’re just starting out. You’ll get there.” Jane comes home and hears Michael listening to porn — but he’s really watching their sex tape, trying to analyze where he went wrong. Together, they find things on the tape that Jane actually liked… then the cartoon rocket ship heads back into orbit. And this time, Jane’s afterglow looks authentic.

  1. Not gonna lie, I’m a little disappointed. I feel like the show played into an obvious trope and it was too much about whether the sex was good or not …and not about their connection or that she was losing it to him and that’s why it was special. I feel like we missed out on the tenderness and intimacy of someone’s first time, especially when you’re in love.

    • suznewbie says:

      Didn’t we kind of expect that though with what Jennie’s said in recent interviews…that she wanted the show’s depiction of their first time to be authentic and not fairy tale-ish.

      But I do agree that it’s their connection and tenderness that makes their relationship so special. Season 3 has done a great job showing the depth of their relationship…at least for me.

      • I actually meant more so of what you’re saying, that I thought the show would show that awkwardness and sweetness of losing your virginity. Most first times aren’t great, they’re awkward, maybe some laughter, probably a tad painful — you’re not really focusing on having an orgasm for your first time. I just feel like the whole orgasm thing could have waited until a later episode. I think we missed some very JM moments that could have focused on the sweetness rather the whether the sex was good or not.

        • suznewbie says:

          Oh, I understand what you were saying now. Sorry I misunderstood! I love their relationship! It is tender and sweet, very committed and so, so passionate! Michael is the perfect guy, boyfriend, and husband. Yes, he had a meltdown when her first learned about the insemination, but he came through that fire a better person…and a perfect mate for Jane.

          (Of course, I’m a bit biased, as I’ve been married to “a Michael” for decades…and the best part of our day is still when we’re together.) :)

    • Cen says:

      This was a realistic depiction of what A LOT of people experience when they have sex for the first time. Especially ones who choose to wait till marriage. It’s not all perfect rainbows and fairytales. You can still be massively in love and intimately connected (which Jane and Michael absolutely are) and find that you need to work a little bit at something you’ve never done before. That’s not a letdown, that’s life.

      • That’s exactly what I was saying? When I am referring to tenderness and intimacy, I mean more the awkwardness and closeness people feel when they have sex for the first time. It’s not about the orgasm or the fairytale, most people don’t have a super amazing or romantic first time…but in that awkwardness, there is a sweetness. I think the show focused too much on whether the sex would be good or not.

        • Guest says:

          You cannot speak for all virgins. Different virgins, different expectations. None are wrong or right. There are virgins especially the much older ones who expect to have an orgasm or at least very pleasurable sex. Nothing wrong with that. There are virgins who have done everything but penetrate and might not experience awkwardness when it happens. Some might decide to do it spontaneously instead of on their wedding night/week and might also not experience awkwardness when it happens. They might be in a moment at a party and viola! There are just too many variables for you to paint over with one brush stroke.

          • cocoforcourtney says:

            I definitely wasn’t speaking for “all virgins” as you’re implying. Obviously not any experience, especially one as personal and private as losing your virginity can be defined as one thing. And I’m not saying Jane’s expectations were wrong? A lot of people do expect the sex to be a fairytale. And while for some people you may have the best sex of your life for your first time, I would say the majority of women (and men, too) probably don’t. I can’t speak for everyone, only myself and my close friends who I’ve spoken to this about …it’s a pretty standard thing for women to have a bit of pain, was a tad awkward (regardless of the fact that we had done everything but with our partners), and was different than how we expected. Obviously can’t speak for everyone and would never claim to. I was just surprised that the show focused so much on the orgasm aspect of it.

          • And again, I have no idea why you think I was speaking for all virgins…that was out of nowhere.

        • Amber says:

          I get what you’re saying. I felt like the episode covered it all, but the “good sex” segment of it did feel a little long.

      • N!loofar says:

        💯 ⬆️

  2. steven says:

    Now the show’s Cougar Town. It’s no longer about a virgin like Cougar Town was no longer about cougars.

  3. Zed says:

    Pardon the pun, but did this feel a little anticlimactic to anyone else besides me? Especially given the revelation that they had done nearly everything else. (Were we supposed to know that?). Good episode, but still expected more.

    • Phil says:

      I don’t recall them ever mentioning doing everything else before, and that line caught me by surprise. Why add that detail NOW? That does change the very nature of Jane’s struggle if she hasn’t actually been struggling that much.
      And there’s so much ambiguity in the line itself and what it could mean, I don’t see why that was necessary.

  4. JJ says:

    Michael may be Jane’s first but I think Rafael will be her last when this show ends!!! I still have hope.

    • Parker says:

      I always have that hope! I was hoping the sex with Michael would continue to be unsatisfying for her, until eventually she had sex with Raf and it felt the way it was meant to for her. I mean sure, the show wants to play into the realism of losing your virginity but after all, it is still a fictional show. It should be open to just about anything.

  5. I wanted to hear that Jane got sore from Michael’s big member.

  6. Madison says:

    I feel like Jane is the least interesting character on the show now. Her and Micheal are so vanilla as a couple and I don’t see how their narrative can stay interesting at this point. They have no where to go. I’m not saying I want the love triangle back or even that I want her to be with Rafael but they need to do something big to keep things moving forward. This episode was a yawn that not even the Estefans could save.

    • S says:

      At least when they were still playing the shady Michael aspect, it was engaging. I don’t want the show to drown in telenovela tropes but since they’re supposed to be playing newlyweds, I give them a pass on the vanilla. I’m not convinced it’ll go away but my prediction is that Michael will die sometime during May sweeps.

      • Muffy says:

        Since S1 we all believed something bad was going to happen him, but I don’t want an easy way out anymore. Something realistic like the marriage ending because it wasn’t meant to be. But he may die saving Petra? Or that could be totally misleading. I’m glad the virgin thing is over. I’m glad Raf is getting a pretty lady friend. Michael and Jane are way too perfect. There is no spice there. No new experiences.

  7. dman6015 says:

    So, what’s the new title of the show going to be? Are they going to leave it “Jane the Virgin”, like they left Cougar Town l-o-n-g after it was no longer about cougars?

  8. Dani says:

    Honestly, I felt like Xiomara being disenchanted from singing seemed to be a much bigger deal than Jane’s loss of virginity. They should have made the episode as if it was the last. It should have been a great ending for a new beginning or a major turning point. But it felt like just a regular episode.

    • Layla says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. I mean I think Micheal is great and all but they should’ve have Rafael come along and stop the marriage. AND it would’ve been amazing. But now it’s different, it needs to change like it was all a dream before the wedding. Or Micheal dies before they do it or gets capture and stays there for a while. Clearly Micheal is not for her.

      • carmen says:

        I read this might be the last season. So sad because I love the first season I blame the writers
        they were not reading the comments that the fans we’re posting. They should have had Rafael
        stop the wedding that would have excited the fans. Now about their first time come on this is a telenovela where was the romantic seen there was nothing it was so boring!!!!!!!

  9. carmen says:

    Omg I did not like this at all. Come on I thought that it would b more romantic.. this is y I keep writing that Jane and Michael have no chemistry. I guess this year the writers r letting Rafael do cameo’s
    Again. This is y the ratings keep going down. Team Rafael

    • tybabb says:

      Aw how fun. Ratings are actually up from last year! Good try though.

      • carmen says:

        I don’t know what your reading but I look at the ratings all the time. They went down and
        that is mostly y there is no DVD for season two.

        • tybabb says:

          I read ratings from facts! Last season, the first three episodes average a 0.367 in Adults 18-49 and 0.947 million viewers. This season, the first three episodes have averaged a 0.4 in Adults 18-49 and 1.07 million viewers. Based on math, that is up.

          • SEM says:

            Here’s a fact…the ratings dropped every week for the last 6 weeks of season 2 when they put Jane with Michael. It’s not what the viewers want to see and they are boring AF with no chemistry whatsoever. If they continue this season like it’s going, the show will be cancelled by May.

          • carmen says:

            This is what I’ve been writing about. I agree with you the fans want to see Jane with Raf
            I guess that the writers and the actors aren’t reading the comments.. I really love this show
            the actors are great but the writers are not!!! Rafael Jane and Rogelio is the reason I watch the show.

    • Daisy says:

      I know you’re unhappy with Jane choosing Michael but according to the ratings listed on this very site, JtV is up from last year and has remained steady for the season so far. You can still hate Michael if you want, though.

      • Daphne says:

        The ratings are likely up because of the Supergirl lead-in (as opposed to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend)! I mean it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out… I also agree with how boring Michael and Jane are. So I’ll hold out hope that he dies during May sweeps and Rafael makes a come back to end up with Jane after all! Here’s hoping.

    • Baileigh says:

      Is that the reason why there is no DVD release for Season 2 because the ratings were that bad?

  10. sweetrupturedlight says:

    Snooze. Jane and Michael have zero chemistry. Its just awful. So glad Raf is moving on though. Woop. Hope he gets a good sl soon

  11. LT says:

    Realistic all around…great female-centric show last night amongst the female leads. So good!

  12. Leticia Rodriguez says:

    Okay this is what truly irritates me about this season so far… WHERE IS MATEO??? Seriously besides the episode where Rafael and Jane are trying to pick a pre-school it’s like Mateo is just an accessory. If the writers want me to care about Michael, they need to include some more Michael and Mateo time. I don’t like Michael and Jane, but if that is the way it is going then something needs to change. I get that Mateo was practically the center of last season, but that does not mean he should be put to the wayside this season. Rafael and Jane are interesting together because they are learning and growing together as parents. It is a bit hard to get emotionally invested in Michael and Jane’s relationship because none of their problems or growth seems all that important. Like Michael gets shot and he is just going to be the same exact person he was four episodes ago? No! People change after big life events such as getting shot or being a mom, and yet I feel like I’m seeing zero change or growth. Where is the CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!?!?

  13. LKE says:

    I gave up on the show halfway thru the second season. Deleted my DVR Season Pass. Too bad, because I loved the first season, but it jumped the shark for me.

  14. Aly says:

    Fun fact Jane the Virgin was renewed so your argument that Jane and Michael ruined the show is factless….so byeeeee!!!

    • Martini says:

      Fun fact: Jane the Virgin was renewed so they can go ahead and kill off Michael so Jane can finally be with Rafael when the series ends (like she does in the original version) – she’ll have had a whole season to process his death and move on.
