I’m really conflicted by this concept. I was a virgin until I was 20 years old. And honestly, I kind of wore my virginity like a badge of honor. But it wasn’t necessarily because I thought I was better than people who weren’t. It was more because I was so proud of the fact that I did it when I was ready, and on MY terms - not someone else’s.
That’s not to say I don’t disagree with this…to a point.
