Virginity and sex help!

I'm a virgin and I've been talking to a guy and he's really sweet and we want to meet up and have sex. He's a few years older than me and I'm really excited but nervous too. My hymen isn't intact as I've inserted small objects and masturbated but does sex feel better than masturbation? He says it does for him but what about for women? Any advice helps. (Yes we're gonna be safe and use condoms😊)
