Some people have no choice in being a virgin. Not everyone is capable of having sex.

Honestly, 20/21. If your still a virgin after your first or 2nd year of college, that's a problem. Especially if your a guy

I'd say 17/18 for a guy. There's a reason the characters in "American Pie" were so desperate to get laid before they graduated high school. No guy wants to go to college as a virgin.

Ya don't think that there's something wrong with someone who is 36 and still a virgin who has never been in a relationship or been kissed? You guys are more mature than me.
Gee, ya think??

Anyone that gives a damn about anyone elses virginity is either spectacularly immature or about 15 years old. It's normal to worry about ones one virginity as a teenager. But for adults to sit around obsessing over the issue is a little... extreme.

I've read studies that show that 3-5% of the western population never has sex. So that's hundreds of millions of people right there who die as virgins. Who cares about the sex life (or non-sex life) of anyone else?

I think the right age is different for everyone. I had just turned 21 and that was the perfect time for me and I don't regret anything about it. There's nothing wrong with being a virgin at 36, but if I started dating a guy and he told me he was a virgin at 36 I would definitely be like HMM. My eyebrows would raise and I'd want to know why. But, it wouldn't be a total deal breaker if I liked him. I could give him some private lessons!

Why pass judgement on others? Just because the "norm" is for people to lose their virginity in their late teens to early twenties, does not mean it is wrong, or that the person automatically has a defect if they are virgins beyond that point. (In some cases, it does mean there is a problem, in others, it is a lifestyle choice).

Not that I have much to complain about because I don't go around sharing my personal life with people but I can still remember how my best friend reacted when I told him I was a virgin. He tried to remain serious and make it look like it was normal but you could see in his face what he really thought about it.

that's pretty much it in a nutshell what I was talking about, I also had more then one experience that was like yours.... this 'you shouldn't be telling strangers your buisness' is obvious and common sense. not talking about strangers, talking about people you know personally. Also, in general it's not viewed as a 'positive' thing overall. Of course 'who cares' and 'it's no one's buisness' is all very well and good to say, but it's not reality. People are judgmental like it or not b/c that's the world we live in. Not just pertaining to this situation, but try going against the grain in general and you'll see how judgmental & dismissive people really are.

Maybe they are waiting on the right one. I hope they find it.
