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.

Bill the Butcher

This was an intensely engaging and interesting story on several levels, not least Violet's evident mental toughness. Imagine a fourteen-year-old illiterate and virtually penniless girl going through a life like that. It strikes me that stories like this, and my grandmother's was comparable, illustrate that our ancestors may have been rather tougher mentally and probably physically than we are, even if they had bad teeth and rickety bones.
