Today we're highlighting Brianna from Arizona, who's ok holding onto her virginity for a while. If you want to tell your story, go to our submission form. You can find all our V-Card Diaries here. Tell us about yourself:
I'm an 18 year old student studying psychology at Northern Arizona University.
How do you define virginity?
I believe virginity is just the first time you experience sexual closeness with another person. Virginity is kind of sexual ignorance (not in a disrespectful way, just in a 'there's no way to know unless you do it' way).
Tell us your story
I am a virgin. My friends have been teasing me since I was 14 about my virginity. I've always been the virgin and I honestly don't think that will change any time soon. My mom was very open with me when she was teaching me about sex. She never said it was a shameful act. She just said that I should wait to have sex until I feel completely comfortable with myself and my partner.
I am very comfortable with my body. I masturbate regularly and am educated about sex and safety. My comfort is not the reason I haven't had sex yet though. I am still a virgin simply because I have never felt comfortable around anyone to let them that close to me. I'm not ashamed of my sexuality. No doubt, I'd love to have sex one day, but I'm just not ready right now. And there's nothing wrong with that.
NOTE Just a reminder: We’re getting amazing feedback for the How To Lose Your Virignity film, but it won’t get finished without your support. Please consider backing the project on Kickstarter. Thanks!
