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.

This was a wonderfully written and very well thought out story! I really enjoyed reading it.

"I want a chance to lose my virginity physically and emotionally, to someone who’s parents I’ve met and who I’ve known for more than five minutes. Because I think I deserve that. Hell, everyone does."

You DO deserve that! And I do too.


I really love this blog! I'm reading it as "research" for a little project I'm putting on for young girls. This story is so interesting and full of so many things that answer a lot of questions about why teenage girls have sex. Thanks for sharing. And I sincerely hope you find love, not just in someone else, but for yourself, as we ALL should xx
