MY Stolen Virginity

Virginity is like a painting in a museum; its meaning comes from the subjective mind of the viewer. Some interpret it as beautiful, empowering, or meaningful. Others look upon it with pain in their eyes. Those others are me.

Some people are kept up at night by virginity's questions.

"Should I get it over with before I go to college?"

"Should I wait for someone I love?"

"Should I wait until marriage?"

"Should I ever become sexually active?"

There is only one correct answer:

Do what makes YOU the most comfortable, happy, and most imporant, safe.

Personally, I have friends who lost their virginity at fifteen, on lunch break, in shrubbery. Other friends are in their early twenties and still virgins. And guess what... Both of these scenarios are completely okay. Because you know what, it's about how YOU feel.

Me? Well, my virginity was stolen.
