I am sorely tempted to engage here, but I am in err because this is the Christianity board and my answers from this point may bring me into conflict with the mods and I don't want to be disrespectful.
The OP has our answers, as well as his free-will. The decision is his to make.

"Is it really a Sin to lose your virginity before Marriage?"

If you want a direct scriptural answer to this, it is Yes.

Scripture indicates fornication is wrong. (Eph. 5:5, Col. 3:5, etc.)

Fornication:{Dictionary Online}

1. voluntary sexual intercourse outside marriage 2. law voluntary sexual intercourse between two persons of the opposite sex, where one is or both are unmarried 3. Bible sexual immorality in general, esp adultery

Sin is defined as, "Fault, or missing the mark, divine transgression." So if one believes that the bible represents God's standards, then this is how morality is judged. If one doesn't accept scripture, then it doesn't matter; they set their own morality or allow others to do it for them.

This does not mean it is unforgivable. King David committed some grave sins, yet found favor with God. I'm sure most of us have transgressed parental law, but were still able to maintain a loving relationship with them and even be forgiven.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but what if a person that has lost their virginity just does not keep sleeping around with different people and have sex wisely?
Yes it is a sin to lose your virginity before marriage.

What makes people believe that there was not an agreement or faithfulness between the parties? Is that not a covenant?
Or are you talking about a wild, drunken or licentious festivity; an unbridled indulgence of passion while dancing?

No doubt, neither could be hidden from the Spirit.

Another case of: "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with..."

Typical argument of someone looking for an excuse. It's a pretty black and white issue, and some choose not to follow that part of the Bible, but it's there. It's a personal decision whether or not to engage in premarital sex, but there is NO argument whether to Bible forbids it or not.

If someone's looking for an excuse or way to justify it, they'll find one, but that doesn't make it right.

Really? No mercy on the molested or raped? Your bible says it just like that - you lost your virginity before marriage, you sinned?
