How do you define virginity?
Virginity is the essence of purity, naivety, and lack of sexual/intimate experience. When I was younger, I simply thought it was vaginal intercourse.
Tell us your story
When I look back, I truly lost my essence of purity in my first year of college, at a gradual rate. I was interested in my own sexual energy, and connecting with others on a sexual level. At the time I thought I was still a virgin because I had never been penetrated by a penis, but even my boyfriend, when I told him I was a virgin, said he was surprised because I emitted such sexual energy. When we finally had sex, it was for only about 40 seconds, and was fairly disappointing. I had much more meaningful sexual experiences with him simply making out.
