How do you define virginity?
No carnal knowledge, not even close.
Tell us your story
I was a painfully shy child, with fringe interests and body issues. Growing up, I decided to wait to have sex. Not for any sort of religious or "moral" reason (I have very open-minded amazing parents who've always encouraged me to find my own path). I don't have unreasonable expectations. I resolved to wait for the day when I finally felt like a sexy young woman, with a man who was as attracted to me as I was to him. I skipped out on college to pursue a passion for film, and have been living with my parents in an isolated suburban neighborhood up until very recently when I relocated to The Bay Area. Now I'm finally starting to feel like a sexy young woman, but I'm still just as socially awkward as I was when I was a child. I'm a 23 year old virgin and it makes me feel like a circus freak every single day. I've only been kissed once and I'm pretty sure it was either an accident or out of pity. I've never gone any further than that. So if the opportunity EVER does arrive... I'm pretty sure I won't even tell the guy that finally sticks it to me that I'm still a virgin, on the off chance that it scares him away. At this point I am so damn tired of waiting that I can't afford to take that risk.
