At first I thought this meant marriage, and it seemed an easy way to avoid STDs and unwanted pregnancy anyhow. I'm glad I didn't get into the mess that is sex during high school-- too confusing and too much peer pressure.
Now that I'm older, I know marriage isn't required for sex to be special and full of meaning, but I still want to wait until I've been with someone several years and trust them completely before I think about engaging in sex with anyone.
That's the simple answer, though I could rant for ages on sex and virginity and how I perceive it.
I feel the same way and have been the same way, I am 23 years old now.~ Still no sex, but that's fine because to be honest if the feelings of emotional love aren't there for me then feelings of physical desire don't really happen for me or are just brief flickers of desire.~
I guess this is because of the fact that I regularly masturbate, so my libido is often satisfied as I have been doing since the age of 9.~
I also think that because of the way I am, staying a Virgin is easier for me: my every thing: heart, mind, body, and soul are not separate and are in every thing that I am and do.~
Be true to yourself,
