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.

im 19 yrs old, and out of all my friends, im the only... u know, so i really relate to your story. I have never even dated. my family swears i must be gay, so i think it is awesome that you waited. It is extremely hard not to just go home with some random guy and get it over with. Maybe ill have as much courage and strength you had. im not saying wait till im 34, but at least until someone who actually cares about me and not just my virginity comes along,

Thank you for your story,
