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.

couldn't agree more about saving for best... and also with Mary about building up experience a bit at a time. its important to try things out in pieces as you develop, so you will learn to understand yourself and how you can be with others better.

even if you did save virginity for best, it would be bringing an empty wine bottle to the party!


I like the expression "breaking the seal". Always consider having sex (or even losing virginity) is a choice, by the way I am a 30 years old virgin. Because of my Chinese family background,I think I will still save my virginity for the best. "The best", I mean, that right person may not be my partner for a life time(or even husband). But at least he should be the one I trust and feel comfortable to open heart to.
