I Asked 21 College Virgins If They Have Any Regrets

I Asked 21 College Virgins If They Have Any Regrets

Surprisingly, most of them didn't.


Finding a college virgin is like finding a unicorn and miraculously I managed to find 21 of them that were willing to tell me about their experiences not having sex.

I asked them why they were still virgins, if they'd felt pressured to have sex, and if they had any regrets. While each of them expressed different things about the topic, there were some similarities across the board.

Of the 21, 6 mentioned religion, specifically Christianity, as their reason for not engaging in sexual activities.

5 said they hadn't found the right person yet and 8 mentioned saving themselves for marriage.

Some mentioned practical reasons such as avoiding STDs and pregnancy while others were more focused on the emotional side of avoiding heartbreak and becoming intimately attached to someone they wouldn't spend the rest of their life with.

Only 5 said they'd never felt pressured. The other 16 mentioned feeling pressured by their friends, people they were dating, or the hookup culture in general.

Of the 21, only one expressed any sort of regret. They mentioned wishing they'd just gotten it over with in high school so they could understand what the hype was about and to be able to relate to their friends on the topic.

Overall, I have to admit I was shocked by the results. When I was in high school I thought everyone in college was sexually active so to find these many people who weren't and who were willing to talk about it was surprising to me.

I was also surprised by how many people were virgins by choice and seemed to be pretty content with the decision they'd made. It made me feel great to know that whatever we decide to do with our bodies and our lives, we are not defined simply by our experiences and that everyone behaves differently for their own reasons.

So here's to the college virgins: may your future relationships be everything you've ever hoped for and may you never feel the need to do anything you're not comfortable with. I support you all the way.

Was A Man Arrested After He Was Caught Having Sex With His Family Dog?

Find out what a woman did after catching one of her family members having sex with a dog!

One man was recently arrested for allegedly having sex with his family dog.

According to http://www.lovebscott.com/, a family member had dialed 911 after witnessing 23-year-old Bradley Jean Hubbard, of Pensacola, Florida, taking the pitbull mix to his bedroom and engaging in sexual intercourse with it.

She was able to see the attack unfold right before her eyes through a hole in his bedroom door (that was caused from a previous violent tantrum).

She claimed that this was not the first time that this has incident occurred and insisted that Hubbard has had more than 100 sexual encounters with the family pet.

Pensacola News Journal noted that the "girl had heard the dog whimper and cry out in pain during each incident, and the behavior had become increasingly frequent over time, which led her to report the attacks in fear of the animal’s safety. She said the dog would initially cry out and whimper during its attacks, but over time it had stopped making noises as it was victimized."

When signs of abuse became apparent, Hubbard was questioned about the dog's appearance. He responded by stating that it was because the dog had been in the heat. The witness did not buy his bogus response and had notified police of this incident on December 23 rd after Hubbard had allegedly dragged the dog right out of her bedroom and brought it into his. Feeling like she no longer could tolerate hearing the noises that came from his bedroom, she ran outside of her house and called the authorities.

Hubbard's father denied that these allegations were true; the police report cited that the witness stated that the father had covered up Hubbard's tracks in the past.

"The dog was taken to a local veterinarian for a rape kit examination, where it was found the animal’s genitals showed signs consistent with abuse. The report states the animal is very aggressive and is only loyal to one human at a time," as noted by Pensacola News Journal.

Hubbard is currently serving time at the Escambia County Jail, held with a bond of $15,00o.

Charges of engaging in sexual conduct with an animal and causing death, pain or suffering to an animal was filed against him.

He is due to appear in court on Feb. 2.

I Want To Be Embraced, But Touch Triggers Me

A poem about touch.


I want to be embraced, but touch triggers me,

Because with touch comes vulnerability.

Touch has the power to lift you yet can destroy you if it's unwanted.

We touch to feel, but the longingness to feel something—a body that isn't yours--takes the good feeling away.

It breaks you.

Over and over again you try to train your mind to tell itself that every touch is not bad; every touch won't leave you crying on the bathroom floor asking why this happened to you.

Every touch won't deprive you of your appetite.

Every touch won't leave you numb like you are when you're reminded of the person who took it all away from you.

Every touch is not meant to harm you the way their touch did.

Every touch isn't meant to break you.

I want to be embraced, because it can make me feel safe

It tells me that I am understood—

Not a body for someone to conquer, but one to nurture.

To be embraced is to be loved—by someone, by something.

But when being embraced turns so quickly into being touched, the safety net disappears.

I want to find refuge in your touch, but touch triggers me.

Because with touch came the conquering of my body

With touch, I was left to pick up the pieces of myself, alone.

With touch, I lost sight of my own.

I want to be embraced, but touch triggers me.

Because I'm reminded of the unwanted ones.

I want to be embraced and touched by you, but it's hard to differentiate between the two

The good from bad- the nurturing from the conquering.

They say boys will be boys, but the parents who taught their boys to be boys, turned into men who left unhealed wounds

Touch triggers me, but I don't want it to.

I want to be loved by you.

My mind says to let go and let you.
