Beautiful story (never thought I would say that in context with prostitution, haha). Although I disagree with his conclusions, I think it is quite a memorable and amazing "adventure." Bravo

Wasn't it a cracker...

I do like his conclusions, paticularly the realisation that sex is so much more than a straightforward physical transaction. Of course it can just be that and be very pleasurable at the same time but the emotional side is surely the most intoxicating part of all no?


This is probably one of the best virginity-loss stories I've read. The author doesn't pretend that it's a magical experience, and the author understood that all the patronage and condescension from people trying to make you feel better is complete bunk. And the context and everything made it all the better. Kudos.
