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.

Wow, what an interesting story and condition! Thanks for the amazing read and diagnosis!

Edward King

As I understand it, the process is akin to placing a battery into a torch, after which the latter experiences a pleasing glow as the former is expended. Would that I knew a little more of torches and could offer worthwhile wisdom, but one's engineer's instinct is that the resolution to the problem lies in a patient, gentle and delicate approach. It seems to me that access to a woman's hallowed sanctum is, offered, as 'twere, via an inverted "zip-fastener", normally closed but intended, when she is willing, ready and relaxed, to yield a warm and widening welcome first from its lowest and most secret point of tender closure. Just a personal observation, but I hope it may be of some use in a future application.

Olde Ted.
