Girls, this one’s for you. And it’s strongly suggested you make mental notes because this deals with a subject often debated, rarely discussed.
We’re talking virginity, or what was until a few decades ago the most prized possession besides great-grandma’s silver jug. Equal interest was spent saving both for that “perfect moment”, which let’s face it... never really came. Great-grandma’s silver jug, which she saved from marauders when an entire nation was splitting, deserves applause each time you hear its story. But unless you are dating the most uncool, close-minded, mama’s boy, no one’s saving any medals for poor wide-eyed virgin you.
Nobody wants virgins anymore. In fact, the guys are actually thrilled with the fact that virgins are on the same list as pandas. Because those “good girls” who are “saving themselves” are receiving the strangest of looks. People are having a tough time believing such people even exist — like Trump supporters. “Why would any sane person deprive themselves of so much fun?” asked one guy at the table during an evening out the other day. “It’s not natural,” returned another.
And it’s not just fun. Science has proven it’s healthy. Sex is a workout, regulates blood pressure, is good for the immune system and the list, spectacularly, goes on! There’s no faulting sex. Also, can we all agree it’s plain normal to have earned some “experience”? You really don’t want to land up in bed wondering what goes where. True romance is based on the fact that you know what you want. It’s not just the heart that hurts, you know.
Let’s give the other side an ear too. The primary reason why men find virgins unappealing is, they are tiresome. They have no clue what to do. In their deer-in-the-headlights look lies bewilderment, much doubt, suspicion even and lying back and enjoying that moment is not an option. Instead, they are forced to pull out notebooks and get down to “teaching”. Come on! There’s not much you can explain with stick figures. And why would you even let Ms What-Does-That-Do near some very important parts that, let’s face it, need delicate handling.
Despite obvious risks at play, if a guy still insists on a virgin, it’s better you walk in the other direction because right there, in front of you girls and guys, is a man who is insecure and narrow-minded. He should’ve been born when people were still settling duels with thin swords.
Agreed. It’s wrong to dive in due to peer pressure. It’s wrong to dive in just because your neighbour did it. It’s not a space programme — it’s just sex. Learn to play it safe, and true. It’s downright madness to hold off for a perfect day — your great-grandma’s jug belongs in a cupboard, not you!
More importantly, remember this. Sex is one of the most important things in a relationship. So it’s great to be good at it....
