I know many blades have already experienced sexual delights, but what if you never did? Would you be content in staying a virgin for the rest of your life? The reason I ask this question is to some people, virginity is a big deal. I have engaged in discussions with two of my comrades about this and they both have opposite views on the subject. The dichotomy is night and day. One friend is 20 almost 21 and has never had any sexual experiences with a girl. He hasn't even gone to first base. He's a cool guy but he gives off an aura of desperation (its so bad I can detect it and I'm male) that supposedly makes one of the male gender unattractive to the opposite sex. He wants to get a girlfriend so bad because he feels inadequate compared to many of his friends. He feels as if something is fundamentally wrong with his core being that he cannot get any female attention. He does not want to hook up with some girl at a party, nor does he wish to go to escort services as he believes he will be in a worst state than if he didn't lose his virginity. Second friend has just recently turned 20. He is also still a virgin and has never had any type of sexual contact with females. He and I went to the same high school and he seemed to be pretty nonchalant about females back then as well. He lives his life like a normal guy. He says it will happen when it happens, but if it doesn't that's fine with him. He believes there are other things in life as he has many hobbies. He is content with being a virgin for the rest of his life, as he reinvests his sexual energy into other pursuits. He is a much more stable individual than guy number one. I don't know how big of a deal sex is for a majority of the population. I would think quite a bit considering we are bombarded by it daily. Promiscuity is encouraged and those who have not yet had sex are seen as being deficient either mentally, emotionally, or maybe even worse - physically. A good amount of people I know said they were happy to get it over with as if it was a curse of some kind. But is it really that bad? The original question stands.
