Why are people proud of being virgins?

I mean, I'm not saying it's something to be ashamed of or anything. I just never got why one would be proud of it either.
You!

    Because we live in a hypocritical society that demonizes a natural instinct, while simultaneously exploiting it at times, for monetary profit?

    Just a wild guess.

    Most aren't really. They just haven't had the opportunity to lose it yet, but they'd rather say it's by choice because it makes them feel special. Not saying it's something to be ashamed of, it's not. It just is what it is, and for the vast majority it's only a temporary condition anyway.
    I personally think our society places wayyyy to much of an emphasis on the first time (both positive and negative) and not enough on any other time. Believe it or not, nothing actually happens when you lose your virginity (provided you used protection! lol).

    It's easy to say yes. There's a lot of pressure to say yes. It takes guts to say no and mean it at a young age. 70-something's bragging on it would be a different story I suppose. But I'm gonna assume you're talking about kids. ( yeah, kids. )

    Hmm, I dunno. Saying yes is often scary. I mean, it's something they've never done before and people make such a big deal out of it.

    But I think I get it.

    if a girl walked into somewhere and announced she had sex the first thing people would assume is a whore. so when they are virgin then it's not so. I don't know anything about men being proud of it

    that's not exactly what I mean. I know people that have had sex once with their boyfriend/girlfriends and people label them as whores. I'm not placing it on everyone that's just the experience I've been around and what I assume is a fair reason of being a proud virgin

    I agree. I mean, people should be proud of who they are and everything, but I don't see any reason that a person should me more proud of being a virgin than not.

    Why shouldn't they be proud? As long as they are not adopting a "holier than thou" attitude to those who are not, then they have every right to feel pride in having the discipline and determination to do what they consider is right for themselves. Nothing wrong in that.

    Having a sex life isn't QUITE the same as being a slut. There is a mid-ground :/
  • Banana ~Doll P... 2012/02/23 21:01:46

    I know theres a mid ground but I went for the complete opposite of being virgin and plus people in the mid ground don't seem to brag and when I talk about sluts there a girls at my school who brag about having sex with multiple guys in the one weekend. So why are they proud?

    It's not so much I'm proud to be a virgin, it's that I'm proud to say that I'm not going to lose it to just any woman. I want it to be with the right woman. One I truly love.

    I guess because they feel it's a difficult status to maintain or means they are more 'pure' than others.

    I've been on both sides of that fence and I can tell ya, it's no big deal, either way.

    i waited and im glad i did i was proud because of exactly what feria said she got it right nailed it and yes it was extremely difficult alot harder than you would think i waited till marriage loving someone your soulmate the magnitude of feelings it is soooo hard to hold back if you havent done it you wouldn't understand,,, sex to me is sacred to only be shared with one other person and that is why i am proud not putting down those who dont wait because i personally know exactly how hard it is to do

    It's because they have no other real accomplishments in life. What one chooses to do with one's body has very little moral consequence- as long as one is not harming another person.

    I have harsh things to say about the 15 year old because we live in a day and age of the internet and proper sex education ( if not in schools, it's all over tv and internet) and except for Rape,there really is NO excuse that I will listen to for Teen Pregnancy.

    I'm being truthful. I don't think they're sluts persay, but most teen moms need to learn that if they're too stupid to use safe sex, then they better keep their legs closed.
