Many of us are brought up on the idea of waiting until marriage to lose our virginity or waiting for people we're in love with to give our all to... but not me... and I'm really not ashamed to admit it.
I do agree somewhat that you should wait to lose your virginity to someone who you think deserves it. I lost mine to my boyfriend of two years in high school. I'm one that usually has a boyfriend, but at this time in my life, I'm not looking for anything like that.
I've never really been denied going all the way with guys... only a couple have told me we were moving too fast. And I totally respect that. Sometimes I'd wonder why I was yearning for sex so much. Maybe I had a void I needed to fill? Nope, I realized I just really liked sex. I love the sparks, the anticipation, and the feeling that comes with it.
And there's nothing wrong with that.
If you don't want to have sex with someone whose body count is high, then don't. Simple as that... you don't need to shame them or bring them down by calling them a "slut" or a "whore" because they're doing something that is not affecting your life at all.
Does it affect you? No. So why should you care who I'm sleeping with let alone anyone else around you who isn't you? As long as you're being safe about it, you should be able to go all the way with whoever you want whenever you want.
When guys have sex a lot, most of their friends congratulate them but when a girl has sex, they always get shamed, when neither men or women should get bashed for having a good time.
Your self-worth is not defined by your body count. My sex life is no one's business but my own.
I have sex... it could be with someone who I care about or it could be someone I just met that night. No one should shame you for doing something that doesn't affect them... especially if it's something as natural as sex.
