I'm in India and in my college average age of losing virginity is around 25-26...I'm myself 25 and virgin

There are lies, dammed lies, and statistics. This information comes from where, exactly? Are the ages averages or mean? Has any consideration been given for the age of majority, the average age of first marriage, and how many people engage in intercourse before and outside marriage? All these factors must be considered. Otherwise the facts are not misleading, they are no better than lies.

are lifetime virgins averaged into this in any way?

I'm frm India, 26 n still a virgin. During graduation I was in a institute where ppl were very much career oriented, even I was busy with all those career things. Now I'm engaged with my work but I'm not married yet and can't think of it atleast til next two years. I believe most of my frnds have similar story like mine. They all are busy enough with their career.
Now the point is in our indian culture ppl (specially from middle class + educated) would not accept a person as their life partner if s/he got laid with someone before. Its just against ethics.
Now till now I did everything quite fairly which my society wanted me to do. I did hard work in school then in college. But I must say Its not healthy to not get laid till 26 specially when you get so many arousing (rather seducing) stimulus all around.
Honestly, sometimes I don't feel good when I see ppl of my age in western part doing things which I don't get here.
I see this as an emerging social issue, certainly with advent of fast communication channels with western society.
I don't want to go brothel, may be cuz that's lame or may be cuz I don't like the inhumanity goes on there.
Now how should I satisfy my urges, I guess this is inhuman too.

It is commendable that you are waiting until you have finished your education and are established before getting married and also commendable that you are coming to the marriage free of STDs. Yet, you are right, it is difficult and perhaps unhealthy to avoid all sexual contact in advanced ages.

How I handled this: I, too went for extensive education and did not wish to marry until I was done with schooling and established.

I did not have intercourse but did have romantic encounters that included orgasms, no risk of disease. These encounters, with partners I really cared about, taught me a lot about what is pleasing to me and to a partner and I recall them fondly. I am now happily married many years and have no regrets.

Some friends who suppressed their sexuality for too long found issues upon marriage with arousal, satisfaction, etc Just my two cents.

unknown. I just want to ask when one is done pap smear does it mean you are not a virgin anymore?

Anonymous said...

I am 22 and I am not a virgin but exactly how do you decide this?

Anonymous said...

losers, the only reason ur still a virgin is coz u dont hv the balls or the skill to entice a girl. even brothels will reject lame asses like you...

Anonymous said...

A pap smear or using a tampon doesn't make you lose your virginity. Only having intercourse makes you lose your virginity (although sometimes people debate why just that one sexual act is given status above all the others- you could have oral or anal sex 1000 times and still be considered a virgin if you haven't had vaginal sex, which is funny.) All that stuff about hymens is nonsense. Many women lose their hymens through sports or stretching or using tampons or masturbating... or they never had much of a hymen to begin with.

I am 17, female, and american. I just lost my virginity a few months ago and i havnt regretted it at all yet. My boyfriend really cares about me and i feel the same. We are going to college together next fall and i dont see us breaking up any time soon. I have to say i am happy with my decision.

Anonymous said...

Im from the US, 22. I waited till i was 22 idk why. then gave it up to a guy i was dating that was 29, while on an internship in Europe. Never saw him after. You make what u can of it. Either age 16-22 would've sucked to lose it like that. The good thing is that u can decide how much u want it to mean. most first aren't the last, so have fun while u can :)

Anonymous said...

I'm 26 and a virgin in the US. I was taught the same thing that the person from India was taught. No sex till marriage. The whole western world is getting laid all the time. Our media is disturbing to me, actually. I don't think it's perfectly mentally healthy to always be alone and so on, but it is healthier than getting diseases or pregnant.

Anonymous said...

sorry, I meant the western world is NOT getting laid all the time.

Not anyone at the age of 17 has not lost their virginity in Sweden lol.. the girls are just too beautiful ^^

NouraAlk said...

the first b*tchy anonymous comment is somewhat on target; this maps the loss of virginity but it doesn't factor in marriage as the cause. People get married young in the south pacific, and young to around 25 in India. America it is socially acceptable to a sizeable portion of the population to lose it. etc etc... stats need context.

I'm 20 male,virgin,studying enggineering.Almost all my first year friend of hostel are virgin. And i don't think we have chance of loosing virginity next 3-4 year. Most of my senior are virgin too. I'm interested in loosing virginity but there was no girls in high school and very few girls in now class. And also due to caste system we have to(ie compelled by social situation) to make girl friend of own or related near caste...im very much interested to loose virginity but still waiting...

Anonymous said...

Its an average of LOST virginity. If you are older and still a virgin, then you are not part of the stat. Wait, don't wait. Its personal choice. But don't judge others who make their own choices as well (as long as its consentual and both of legal age).

These surveys are a load of rubbish. It's just a bunch of 16 year old trying to sound cool by telling a condom company that they have sex, most them wouldn't have.

I am an American woman. I was 14 when I lost my virginity to a 17 year old. It was out of peer pressure that I agreed to it. I was one of the last girls in my class to loose it. I regretted it then. It is 10 years later and I am now married (to a different guy) and just had my first baby. My husband accepts me, and that's all matters.

I'm a 17 year old Indian girl. I lost my virginity a month to my best friend. We weren't dating each other so one might say that I didn't wait for the " guy ", but with him i was safe and don't care about anyone more. That's about as special as it gets:)

IS having gay sex considered as losing virginity ? i had it when i was 20.

Anonymous said...

I'm a 17 year old male from Romania (which is not included in this stat btw) and lost mine at 15. Only had 1 partner (with whom I'm still together & have basically done everything). I think the average in my country would be about 16, even my grandfather told me he lost his at 15.
