It’s no shameful, hushed secret that I’m a virgin, is it? I make no apologies about it. I make no excuses for it. It’s just who I am and where I am in my life right now.
Why, of all things, should being a virgin relegate you to taboo territory? It’s not like I have some sort of disease (We can be sure of that, if you know what I mean…), or will turn you into a monster or something just by being around me.
I often think about what the world would be like if we felt as open and free to discuss virginity in the same way we have frank talks about sex and other things that go on behind those bedroom doors. It would certainly be a freeing experience, wouldn’t it?
And what’s more, why does it seem like the rest of society has more of a problem with my actions (or lack thereof…) than I do? But what about dating a virgin? Have you? Would you?
I’d love to hear your thoughts, friends! xoxo
