Some time ago I was listening at the radio. The dj at that hour asked the audience if a virgin could call. What do you know? He gets the call and starts making fun of her. He puts this classical music, heaven like and starts telling her, "virgin please make a miracle". I was totally ***. I am not a virgin but I do respect a person who in her mind wants to save herself for that person he/she will share his/her life. Hold on though, some months ago I was watching a talk show and this lady started telling a girl that there shouldn't be any virgins. She said all girls should be circumsized. I was like, stupid lady, if they want to keep theselves like that let it be. I know that a person who has kept her/his self without sex are more likely to be more morals. I get the sence that people who have lost their virginity tend to envy those who still have it. I don't know if there is anything to envy about that, (inocense, maybe), but my question is. How bad is it to be a virgin?

It is up to the individual to do what they believe is right. Everyone has the right to make their own choices. Some people try to be smart and play to the gallery.
I don't know why people are so negative towards virginity. Personaly I don't think it's stupid, on the contrary, I think it's a smart move.

I'm an old woman now Emotion: big smile (39 years) but when I was a teenager I thought I was the only one at school who was still a virgin.
After a while I found out that most classmates were bragging about IT (as we used to say those days) I wasn't the only one, most of the classmates were still a virgin. Just a few had lost their virginity.

When I'm looking at the future, with al those diseases, I think young people have to think more then twice before they take the next step in a relationship.

It is indeed very intelligent to remain a virgin until marriage. The VAST majority of people running around with AIDS and other sexually-transmitted diseases are suffering from those because they can't keep it in their pants. I have no sympathy for people that are promiscuous and have sex with more than one partner and then end up with diseases like that. I'm not condemning anybody; I'm just saying that if you're gonna do things like that, expect to suffer the consequences. If everyone waited until they got married to have sex, well, STDs would eventually become a thing of the past. Also, there wouldn't be as much heartache caused by that kind of thing, and there wouldn't be so many unwanted pregnancies, either.

If you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Common sense. Use it, and you won't have a problem.
Hi haogide and everybody,
Non-virgin and promiscuous are different things. The first doesn't imply the second.
Yes, that's true...to a certain extent. However, who's to say that your partner hasn't had sex with several other people, regardless of what he/she says ("Oh, it's only been a few people, and they were all clean. And we used a condom every time"). So, in that way, it could amount to promiscuity through association.

If, however, you're committed to keeping your virginity until marriage, and your partner is the same way, you've got a much, much lower chance of catching some kind of STD, unless your partner just turns out to be some kind of hypocrite, which is rare; let's face it, people that don't want to wait until marriage, but say they do, will within a few months probably start pushing for sex in one way or another.

I guess my point is that I think keeping one's virginity until marriage and having a partner that feels the same way is a great thing based solely on the fact that it's healthier, not even mentioning religious reasons.

My wife and I waited, and now neither of us has to worry in the slightest bit about if we some day find out we've got some kind of disease because of an accident that happened with a previous sexual partner.

I'm with you Haogide. You are absolutly right. If everyone would waith there wouldn't be so many diseases.

I have waited too but you know these day's you can't turn on your television without seeing sex in some way. Soaps, Holiday movies (maybe also other movies), programs about "testing" people, Robbinson island or someting like that.

With so much sex on television young people easily can think that it is normal to do it and with more then one person. "On television it is ok so why shouldn't we?"
They don't think any further, they only want to have "fun" as on television. The don't think of all the consequences. (w)
Virginity is good unless you have been married for 5 years and you still are.
hahahaha, good point, Jobb! Emotion: stick out tongue
