Not to be sexist, but for female -YES, for men -not so much.
 
2012-05-31 11:24:07 PM
That is directly proportional to the hottness.

/accomplishment? Depends on your goal, I guess...
 
2012-05-31 11:24:39 PM
There's plenty of good reasons to abstain from sex. I would describe her reasons as "the wrong reasons".
 
2012-05-31 11:24:45 PM
No, just like losing your virginity at 13 isn't an accomplishment.
 
2012-05-31 11:24:47 PM
Like the article says, I find it somewhat disturbing that apparently she is doing this for her future husband and not for herself.
 
2012-05-31 11:25:21 PM
This twunt again? I bet she'll lose it on a hurdle.

These abstinence people are of the same ilk as the people who don't own TVs. They are eager to tell you how great it is despite the fact that it obvioulsy isn't.

biatch is a nutty liar.

I farked her in high school on New Years Eve in 2000.

Jones places virginity on such an impossibly high pedestal that even the greatest athletic event in the world could not compare with (marital) sex. It is completely understandable that Jones wants to combat the "uncoolness" associated with being a nonsexually active adult, but feeding into a mythical cult of virginity does not help matters. Rewarding chastity only serves to shift rather than resist the flak associated with adult abstinence.

I'm 36 and there's at least one other TFer I know of who has a few years on me. Apparently by now I should have tripped and fallen into some lady parts but the world does not work that way for some people.

I bet she'll lose her virginity due to an accident during her attempt at the pole vault.

Broads can lose their virginity whenever they want to.

All they have to do is walk out their front door and say to the first guy they meet "Would you like to fark me?"

That's it.

But men have to work for that shiat.

There are a lot of people who do. The actual numbers would surprise you.

One (really hot) woman I went out with who was still a virgin told me she was still a virgin because she didn't want to date guys who only wanted her for sex, so she was waiting til marriage.

And yeah, it is way easier for a female of average-or-higher attractiveness to get laid than a guy.

I used to think there was, then I lost it to some psycho, who, not only lied about a lot of stuff, but was pretty bad in bed. Icing on this CSB is that after I tossed her out, I found a syringe in my couch.
 
2012-05-31 11:30:37 PM
I see no reason to be ashamed of it. I see no reason to advertise it, either. Like almost all of what happens between one's thighs.

Some things are too personal to share, except to those that wish to be lauded for it.

/Still have the box it came in.

That was purely for demonstrative purposes, btw. I like men.

Ah, but you still have one up on a man!

If it's an ugly man, he's farked!

Well, no he's not.

And that's why prostitution should be legal.

My last girlfriend was still a virgin at 29. I'm not doing that again, I don't want to be the one that has to break them in. She had some weird hangups.

2012-05-31 11:36:55 PM
Funny thing is, she is staying a virgin following the same God that hands out 72 virgins to smelly, hairy suicide bombers who don't even leave the dinner table to fart.

Something tells me she hasn't thought this cunning plan all the way through.

Are there *any* sexually well-adjusted female athletes that are still muscly? Makes ya wonder if some of these things aren't the result of basic hormonal imbalances..

Sounds like she is building some unrealistic expectations for her future husband.
 
2012-05-31 11:37:28 PM
Knew a girl a few years ago who was in her early 20s and a virgin. It was a complicated story, and she was somewhere between wanting to preserve it forever and dying to give it up. Fast forward a couple years and there she is on facebook, pregnant and unmarried. To add a point in her column, she's apparently going to marry the baby daddy, and good for her.

/uCSB
// people change, and people do ridiculous things, building up relatively minor things (like virginity and losing one's virginity) into major issues
/// said it before, and I'll say it again: good for Lolo for staying abstinent, but really lame that she's making a big deal out of it like this and complaining that it makes it difficult (note, I did not write "hard") to find a boyfriend; most likely, she's setting herself and her future deflorist up for a big disappointment when their first coitus turns out to be crap; good news is, neither of them will likely realize that until much later, like most of us have about our own virginity and sexual experiences...
//// sex gets better with practice, and

And ladies, if you want to stay a virgin for whatever reason, then more power to you. But for godsakes, would you please learn to masturbate? Start practing soon and often. You should be able to climax in no time at all. Us guys have perfected this and we're tired of being told we are "too early". No damnit. You are too late! You wanna have a long session every now and then, fine. However, get out of your own damn heads and learn to climax without marathons and rose petals.

"It's just a gift I want to give my husband."

I'd rather you gave me a Ferrari if it's all the same to you.
Inexperience isn't nearly as endearing as it's cracked up to be, especially on your wedding night.

On the plus side though, you'll definitely be the best lay she's ever had, and when you go down on her, you won't be picturing the legion of dicks that have been there before you.

You'll also be able to quote Star trek and mean it, though guys who go around quoting Star Trek usually don't have to worry about what they're gonna say during sex.

I lost my virginity at 25. I'm 42 now and I'm still bitter and ashamed that I didn't do it sooner.
 
2012-05-31 11:39:35 PM
Is there a not-farking-people prize? If I'd known about that I might have made an effort.

FirstNationalBastard: And that's why prostitution should be legal.


I agree that it should be, but I still feel there are significant ethical considerations that should be made prior to using their services. I also believe that physical intimacy is secondary to an emotional connection and and level of trust. Sex is seconds (minutes/hours/whatever) of your life, but the decision to be with someone in that way is something that's with you for your whole life thereafter. Personally, I wouldn't do it with just anybody.
