Since When? by ZOMBIEgiraffes Since When? by ZOMBIEgiraffes
This is a better version of the old stamp I made, which I can't seem to find the old one....
That's been happening a lot to me. I look for a deviation in my gallery and I can't find it anywhere, yet it is still getting favorites. -_______-
If anyone happens to find it in my gallery it would be lovely to know.

Anyway, this stamp is the truth! Have you ever been look at weird when people find out you are a virgin? Or they even say, "you are missing out".

You're not! Don't let anyone tell you everyone is doing it, because the truth is much greater than half the female, teenage population are still virgins. Don't rush it, be proud and never give in to peer pressure.

:bulletpink:"Statistics reveal a high rate of virginity among US teenagers in the 21st century than earlier. Risks of unwanted pregnancies, fear of HIV infection, a stable family background and improved sex education for adolescents are the causes for this trend."

Taken from an article by Rodger Doyle

:bulletpink:This one's kind of old but it applies even more in todays society.
-Nationally, more than half of teenagers are virgins until they are at least 17 years of age (Sex and America's Teenagers, The Alan Guttmacher Institute, New York, 1994).


We love you the way you are :icondeathhugplz:

I'm 17 and virgin and I'm happy to be one! Jesus, I'm hearing 12 year olds loosing their virginity...crazy!
But people these days should know you don't have to have sex to show love, really. Somehow if you're a virgin it's a crime!
My friend lost her virginity when she was 13 for Christ's sake. It's getting out of hand.

being a guy I have to say I have no problem with virgins, in fact I am one! I always thought that I would worry about finding a woman I loved and then getting married, then sex. That I think will make sure I never have unwanted children or hurt feelings or regret or whatever the hell. besides then thing will be more "enjoyable" later on ;)

I just happened to run into this while browsing and glad to see some teens on here taking it seriously. Honestly if people say "everyone is doing it" say "no not everyone because I am not". Also if someone tells you that it is for a few reasons;

1. If it is a guy saying it to a girl he it is because he simply wants to get in your pants. It's as simple as that.

2. It is someone of the same sex trying to pressure you to join in their "fun". Also if you are a women hearing it form another women it is because they more then likely feel guilty about giving it up (not all the time but most of the time from what I run into). They also assume you are judging them for not waiting. This all someone else's insecurities not yours.

Trust me I have enough experience in this. I am 33 year old women who waited until she was married (2 years ago in fact) to give herself to her husband and it was worth the wait. Let me tell you why;
1. Because of my religious view (Praise God for those "rules" I see why they are set in place)
2. As a woman there is more at risk in general

3. Also as a woman sex isn't that great if the guy isn't willing to put in the effort to make sure you get the same pleasure out of it as you do. The fact is so many women have trouble reaching organism unless a guy is really conscious of what he is doing. Often times it is uncomfortable and the first time it usually hurts (really bad actually for most women no one ever really talks about it).

I don't mean to get so detailed but I really want to stress this to people especially young women. If a guy really doesn't care about you he isn't gonna care if you like it. He only cares about taking just 5-10 minutes to blow is load and that is it. You are left with not the "amazing" feeling of orgasm (which Hollywood seems to give the wrong impression) and could end up with far more consequences for his "pleasure" then he does. That is why women often feel empty, unsatisfied, and then have a baby to boot (or even worse an STD). Trust me birth control doesn't always work. I know so many of my friends over the years will tell you there kid was a birth control baby. I also know these details because of friends of mines experience and my own.

Thanks for sharing! I love reading everyone's comments. I don't want any ladies, especially young ladies to feel pressured into it. Hollywood makes it seem so imperative for a relationship, when it's something that should be seen as more intimate.

It is sad how movies and TV shows present sex is one of the first things you do in a relationship. While it is a wonderful thing having sex to soon can cloud good judgement on a relationship. I just had a conversation  friends who were involved with someone for so long and had the epiphany that all they had in common was "sex" and most of their core values didn't' match.  Some had kids and even married (and divorced later) because hormones clouded their judgement. Sex can't be the only factor that bring to people together. It should be the icing of the cake.

I also want to make it clear, yes I enjoy sex but that is because my husband makes sure I do. It takes a lot more effort then just "sticking it in there". I am trying not to be to graphic but I want to get the point across.

I love this! Don't ever let a guy pressure you, stand your ground. If he pressures you, he most likely isn't the guy for you. He should love you for you, and not for anything else. It's your body, be proud and respect yourself. Though, it sounds like you already know this. :) You're a beautiful person, thank you for sharing!

This is great. No, there is nothing you are missing out of. I know both ways, and (if I were someone else) wouldn't just trade my virginity away. You need to be serious about what you are doing.

Why is being a virgin such a bad thing? It's not like you'll stay one forever, and if you do, it's actually a bonus since you won't have any regrets whatsoever if you stay chaste (like bastard children, STDs, etc..). I don't even want to date, let alone marry and settle down, so why would it matter to someone that I'm a virgin? Society is just so retarded at times *shakes head*
