I'm 22. I attend a small private liberal arts college in the Southern Appalachians where I study biology and psychology. I've been reading this blog for probably 4 years and it really helped me come to accept my sexuality and to break away from the abstinence-only viewpoint that I was raised in.
How do you define virginity?
Before having Penis-in-Vagina intercourse, I would have defined it as that but afterward I came to realize that it was more about trusting another person and letting them get intimate with me then about the "sex." All of the other experiences were a much bigger deal at least to me.
Tell us your story
My lab partner asked me to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show with him. That night we stayed up until 4 a.m. and got to second base. Over the next month we hung out in his room and went further and further a little at a time. He made me feel safe and comfortable and was never pushy. He was understanding, which is good because I'm allergic to latex, polyurethane, and nitrile. I stayed over in his room, spent weekends together and finally got to the point. One Saturday, he asked and I said yes. The first time was, well, not great. It wasn't necessarily bad but it was just sort of uncomfortable and weird. Nothing really prepared me for what that was going to feel like. I didn't bleed, at least not the first time, and wasn't really that sore afterward. It got better though, a lot better, over time. We didn't last and the break up was far for mutual but I can't really regret the experience.
