When should you lose your virginity because you’ve been totally agonizing over it
Is timing everything?
You’ve been thinking about losing your virginity and you’re not sure if it’s the right time or what. It’s such a weird topic because people either put all the emphasis on it in the world like it’s a magical event or none at all. While it’s an extremely personal decision, it also feels like it’s a subject where everyone has got an opinion. We’re here to help you break down your options when you’re wondering, “when should I lose my virginity?.”
If you’ve got a significant other…
So you’ve got a special fella or lady in your life that you’re thinking about having your first time with. This could be a special moment for you. Have you talked with your partner about sex before? Does he or she know you’re a virgin? It’s not a bad idea to talk through things before hand. We’re not saying the moment should be totally planned to the letter, but you should both have an idea of what’s comfortable for you both.
Planning the moment out might put too much pressure on things and take the romance out of the equation. You’ll be all in your head and not really able to enjoy the experience. We’d let things happen when you feel ready.
If you’re flying solo…
If you’re ready to lose your v-card and don’t want to wait for a relationship to make the moment happen, good for you! You’re entirely in charge of your own sexual decisions. We wouldn’t recommend going for a total stranger on a night out. Try to find someone you somewhat know and feel comfortable with so you’re safe.
You are totally in control and should pick the time and place that works best for you. If you’re in a moment and feeling it, then go for it.
The average age for a woman to lose her virginity is around 17. If you’re already in college and haven’t done the deed yet, there’s no reason for freak. Plenty of people arrive to university as virgins. You shouldn’t feel like you have to lose your virginity based on your age.
There’s the mythical “window” of time when a lot of women lose their virginities. It’s basically ages 16-22 and it’s definitely a time of freedom and exploration, but it should be when you decide. If you feel like you’ve reached an age and you’re ready, then you do you.

Time to dump your boyfriend for a tapir

Look, we all know that men can be unbelievably frustrating. Sure, they can be cute sometimes. But they barrage us with thirsty DMs and unsolicited dick pics, they ghost us after one date, and they use the same body wash to clean their hair and their nutsack. Hard pass. And even when we do end…

Allow me to paint a picture for you: it's the summer of 2008, the sun is beating down on the ginormous parking lot in which Warped Tour is held. A massive crowd of sweating teenagers in ass-cheek-revealing shorts from Ruehl (OMG remember Ruehl? That's a story for another time…) gathers in front of a main…
