V-Card Diaries: AJ "I'm shy because of the negative reinforcement from mom about taboo topics."

Today we're highlighting AJ in India, a shy man who fears a sexual relationship due to negative reinforcements from his mother. 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 turn 29 in July. I work in the S/W industry writing programs,tools and APIs for computers, networking devices etc. I have been a shy kid since my teens, and often keep to myself. Part of the reason for shyness is because of the negative reinforcement from mom about taboo topics, words etc..

How do you define virginity?  

Never having had sexual intercourse with a woman.

Tell us your story:

Naturally, I spent time in libraries reading as voraciously as I could (favorites being jokes/humour/philosophy etc..). Then I moved out of home for college, but ended up in a course with a male:female ratio of 11:1. So obviously, the library became the refuge as I escaped all the competition and developed a defensive superiority complex. It's been 7 years since then, and I've been in 3/4 relationships, but it's been awkward due to lack of experience. But I've been kissed and reached second base.
