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 always thought the "loss of acne upon sexual intercourse" was a myth?

As far as parents just KNOWING, wouldn't that be an observation of how their child is now ACTING based on said child's feelings of having sex for the first time? (i.e. more confident, smiling, pleasant etc) versus the actual ACT of sex?

You are almost certainly right Natalie, I guess it just makes a better story!



Hi ya, err, this is a touch off topic, but I tripped over your blog on my way to somewhere else and stopped to have a gander - brilliant! I dunno how ya make a whole blog dedicated to virginity or it's eventual loss [or perhaps even, it's permanency] - but I'm glad ya did, you made my morning ... have an excellent day.


When I lost mine at the young age of 20, a lot of my friends observed that "something was different"...even though most of them had no idea I had been a virgin! So I concur that something definitely changes.

I love your blog, BTW. :)

I wonder what it is that changes though....perhaps its a confidence thing?

Many thanks for your kind comments - appreciated!



Spot on with this write-up, I absolutely feel this amazing site needs far more attention. I'll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the info!
