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.

"When I approached my mother about it, she told me that it was all a lie."

"I just wasn't allowed to have boyfriends. You wonder why I didn't go behind my parents' backs, but this wasn't just a rule...this was The Rule. For Chinese parents, a boyfriend means distractions which mean bad grades (like B's). There is no influence more evil than Boyfriends."

Not just Chinese either. Indians are no different. Parents would rather die than admit the existence of sex to their children. And as for friends of the opposite sex, unless you're the child of couples belonging to the consciously "modern" elite, forget it.


As I was googling about "regret losing virginity" I came across your blog. I regret losing mine big time because it was with someone who just turned out to use me for sex. He was my first bf and first kiss but he treated me like a whore. I envy you for having found a sweet guy who made you live your life without missing on anything.
