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.

No need to give the Mail a big up, I'm pretty sure the Mirror did this first.
Just saving you from having to ever do that, yknow :P

I think it's a great idea tho, whoever thought of it first. If only I wasn't still a teenager...


Wow - this is a fantastic idea. And I had thought about doing this for my children one day. So that maybe they dont need to make the same mistakes again.

Thanks for sharing.


I would do that for sure, if I wasn't still a teenager... a letter from myself some years ahead would really help me to go through the problems I have now.
And yes, the stories on this website do make a difference, a lot more than you think ;)
