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.

Having sex doesn't make you a man. People make mistakes, but it bothers me that some people are proud of what they've done. I never watched the first season of this show, but on (I think it was) the first season of MTV's (a channel I don't watch anymore) The Real World there was a guy called Jon Brennan and now, years later, he's in his mid-30s, still a virgin, and proud of it. Now that's a man!
