In this age of computers, do you think there are still virgins around among teens as well as those in their 20s and 30s? The answer is a definite yes. If you’re a fan of reality TV shows, you may have heard about TLC’s Virgin Diaries which feature people who have not done it yet.
Several studies may have confirmed that the age of teens losing their virginity is becoming younger and more are engaging in sex with different partners, experts cannot discount the fact that there are still people who value this and who have a high respect for the opposite sex.
The National Center for Health Statistics reported that the number of people who prefer to keep their virginity until the right time is increasing. It revealed that among young adults aged 15 to 24, the number of virgins has increased in recent years. The center said that 29 percent of women and 27 percent of men claimed to have not had a sexual encounter yet.
But while this may be a positive development that parents look forward to hearing, there’s a downside to waiting too long to have sex. A biological anthropologist and research professor at Rutgers University said keeping one’s virginity for long won’t enable a person to learn about sex, how to handle themselves and another individual. Helen Fisher said this is not just about doing it in bed but learning about another person through the courtship process.
Staying a virgin until your 20s and 30s often get raised eyebrows and not-so-good reactions from many people particularly if you’re in the U.S. People find it strange or odd if you haven’t experienced sex for the first time. They think there’s something wrong with you psychologically.
But it’s a choice that people including teens can make. There are ways that they can overcome their sexual desires. For instance, these young people who join the Virgin Diaries reality TV show claimed to have normal sex drives but are strong enough to enough to ignore. Some young ladies aid they bake or go hiking to address their desires.
For the women who have kept their virginity, they feel that they have saved themselves from a lot of headaches. For those who wish to experience it, it’s best to be prepared. Bring a condom to make sure you protect yourself from unwanted pregnancy and infectious diseases. Keep these in mind and you’ll be safe.
