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

"I did have the courage to ask her less attractive friend for a dance."

Old, old story. Over and over again, in my own lifetime, I've found myself approaching more "plain" women instead of the "unavailable" pretty ones. My own lover now, as well as my ex-wife, would probably be classified as average lookers. However, I don't find that this has fundamentally hurt my love life, because the average looking person usually has fewer (in my experience) hang-ups than the devastating beauty type.

That said, I understand completely your protagonist's PoV. I myself had a long relationship with a very, very Catholic girl which never ended in penetrative intercourse. However, it was very frustrating, sexually, to get to the brink and no further, and I think it played its own part in our breaking up. Your protagonist evidently had more integrity than I.
