Ten Things Every Twenty-Something Virgin is Tired of Hearing by Alice Riley
You don’t have to be in your 20s to find these sorts of things obnoxious and annoying. You can be over the age of 30, a virgin, and still be faced with these types of platitudes and put-downs and incredulity.
When it comes to losing your virginity, some people meet their first love at 15, date for X months before deciding they’re ‘ready’, and do the deed.
Others, however, were on the shy side, went through education with a gender ratio that didn’t work out in their favour, or were just a bit unlucky, and therefore managed to make it into their twenties (or beyond), without having, well, done it yet.
But it’s fine.
Everyone’s life progresses at their own pace.
But while we late bloomers are aware sex isn’t the be all and end all, and we’re happy to wait for whatever it is that we’re waiting for, other people on the other hand *do* have a problem with our lack of action.
Here are 10 things every twenty-something virgin is tired of hearing. [You can also add virgins age 30+ to this list for a lot of the things on this list]
4. ‘You’re frigid/ boring/ a prude’
Just because there’s no-one I want to explore those kind of feelings with right now doesn’t mean I have no sexual feelings at all.
When a man accuses a woman of not having any sexual feelings, what usually happened was she didn’t have a sexual feelings *for him*.
Probably because she caught on to his sexual entitlement complex and her vagina dried up faster than an earthworm in a heatwave.
7. ‘It’s not a big deal, you should just do it’
If it’s not a big deal, why is it a big deal that I haven’t done it?
9. ‘Men like experienced women’ (or insert the appropriate genders)
The harsh truth of it is that some men may like experienced women.
But equally, some men like the traditionalist type.
Some men like someone they can lead.
And some men couldn’t give a toss about how many previous sexual partners someone has, as long as they fancy them.
And if someone doesn’t want to date me, why would I want to date them anyway?
