36, okay. What about 53?

Lots of guys graduate from college and are still virgins. What problem? For whom would it be a problem? Nobody cares. Sooner or later, they get girlfriends and live happily ever after. End of story.

How do you know that's going to happen? A lot of guys end up alone.

Most guys who are virgins at that advanced age DON'T want to be. They just can't get laid.

And that's a problem

If you want to stay a virgin because of religious reasons or just personal reasons fine, but if not that's pretty sad


I actually take pity on those guys

Why, there are more serious problems in the world than whether a guy is a virgin or not. Seriously people. This isn't high school anymore.

I've got a question myself. At what point do people grow up and stop caring about how many times people get laid? Or whether someone is a virgin or not and worry about more serious issues?

I think that losing your virginity and acquiring plenty of varied sexual experience is an essential component of proper mental growth and maturation during one's late teens and early-mid twenties. Especially for guys. Let's face it, most people (esp. guys) who are virgins past the age of 23-25 or so tend to possess odd personalities & mannerisms, exhibit creepy behavior, have low self-esteem and carry themselves awkwardly. Of course, there are exceptions to this and there are quality, confident older people out there who are virgins. Most humans are biologically wired to naturally seek out sexual fulfillment within 3 to 10 years after reaching puberty. It is what it is.

It is also easy for many people to detect older virgins within minutes of meeting or simply observing them.

With that said, there is no cutoff. If you're not ready then don't do it. Some people you date won't care if you're older and inexperienced, many will. It depends.

As for religious folks, although I have no stats to back it up, I suspect that many of the really devout, serious ones get married at young ages (early-mid 20s) so they're having sex young regardless.

*The above does not apply to those who are hardcore religious, but rather the average, everyday person.
