How do you define virginity?
A person who has not engaged in sexual intercourse. Mind you, I do not believe oral sex etc. is sexual intercourse.
Tell us your story
I was 19 when I lost my virginity and I was drunk. It was with a friend's friend who was younger than me. We both were drunk. Actually, I was kind of desperate to lose it. I felt an insane pressure to be a person who had sex. So, I did. The morning after, I didn't regret it. I don't really speak to the guy at all and I started sleeping with other people. I don't think it'll affect me until I find someone to fall in love with. I've never had a boyfriend, mainly just one night stands.
Any thoughts on virginity in our society?
It's ridiculous. I have some friends that are still virgins and I always say to them: WAIT until you find someone you LOVE. I wish I listened to my mothers advice, I guess! So much emphasis is placed on virginity. If you've had sex, you're a slut. If you haven't, you're a frigid prude. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
