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.

Glad you are posting again!

Home alone

> We all lose our virginity

Oh dear. This may come as a shock but I'm a 52 year old male virgin. Not my choice. Never had any luck. I'm an incel (involuntary celibacy). A small percentage of adults never have sex. Brian Gilmartin put it at 1.7%. I'm one of them. One of those characterized in the '40 Year Old Virgin'.

Sad but true.

On the contrary Home Alone, by far the most amount of mail I get comes from people like yourself. One of my interviewees is a fifty year old man who has never lost his virginity AND been married for 21 years. Its just not a club that advertises itself is all.

The one thing I will always stand by is this: its never too late...
