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.

I fondly recall the Little House on the Prairie book where Laura has to help in twisting hay into 'logs' to burn on the fire since they were out of firewood and in blizzard conditions could not chop more, and how the author described how her cold hands chapped and bled from the rough hay.

Perhaps another reference is in order.

The Virginity Project

How about The Waltons?


Know nothing about them, so have at it!

You physically give your whole self to another : (and reciprocally). I still cannot tell which is better to live and/or to remember. Endlessly becoming a virgin again (remembering) but definitely not "born a virgin again" in the sense of your unenglish friend.
