Whats it all about?

  • Losing our virginity…it happens to almost all of us, no matter who we are or where we come from. How did it happen for you? Ever wondered what other people think and feel about this never-to-be-repeated experience? I am on a mission to find out. Follow my journey as I collect stories from as wide a selection of people as possible. From men and women, old and young, gay, straight, Christian, Muslim and Catholic, from the funny and the sad, to the happy and occasionally, the unbelievable. I am in search of the one story that we rarely share. Come and join my adventure.

The Virginity Project

A good question and the answer depends on how you define virginity loss. Virginity is all in the head as far as I am concerned but then Ive never been judged for its loss so I can afford to say that. Not everyone (women mostly) has that luxury.
