, i count myself lucky that i was stubborn enough in high school to reject the 'must lose virginity' mantra., or 2 would judge a guy for seeing a prostitute, but would not judge a non-prostitute for her sexual history… well, citation still needed. you're certainly welcome to critique that his description is incorrect but he absolutely has the right to free speech and the privilege of a platform, just like that guy from duck dynasty. if i had taken that survey before i met my husband, i would have said i would prefer not to date a virgin. haven't told this guy you like that you like him, or that you've never so much as fooled around with anyone. that's why many experienced guys are crummy lays; they've convinced themselves they know how sex works, and can't (or won't) wrap their heads around the notion that every partner is unique and will have her own tastes and preferences. those seem to be more about guys who have interesting character traits for not complying with the kind of behaviour that society at large promotes and welcomes. a guy is embarrassed about being a virgin in his 30s or 40s, people scold him for having no "confidence. opinions on our respective virginity tend to be at opposite ends, but i do agree about one thing–i'm not keen on the whole teacher-student idea.’s also the arch-nemesis of the resigned fiance, who’s in an equally unhappy relationship but just kind of kept going with it, unable to resist the sweet, sweet inertia, and who most certainly does not want to hear about the new lease on life guy’s latest exploits. being a male virgin at an older age thus signified a man of low means/class. i'm not mocking male virgins, just people who think that it's perfectly reasonable to suggest that women should be having sex with people they aren't attracted to, but who then refuse to do the same themselves. it wouldn't be rare for a man doing his old testament-ing correctly to be a 30-year-old virgin. sex doesn’t make you a better person and losing your virginity shouldn’t define who you are. it's when i joined the club, that i truly lost my virginity. so yeah, some guy out there has an easier time than you. he can become a dad any time over the next 40 years. it's basically like, if you don't act the way a "straight, white man" is supposed to act, then maybe you aren't deserving of all your straight white privilige (see straight white guys who "act gay," for example). one of the main causes of anxiety is that you aren't really a man if your a virgin past a certain age. began to internalize the idea that only bad guys had sex, and that women were terrible idiots for having sex with those men. i dumped him because i didn't know how to help him work through his insecurities, not because he was a virgin. think the problem is that a lot of guys in the second group stop at "i want to have sex and i'm not getting the sex i want," and never move on to "maybe the problem is my serious social problems and possibly other issues. furthermore, i seem to recall someone once claiming that prior to 1950-ish, most men lost their virginity by way of a prostitute. tidbit from the bible nerd, but for all the screwy puritanical mindsets in this country, male virginity was a complete non-deal for people in biblical times. and the privilege to rebuy the same items over and over because they only last a year or two! so, at the very least, if i'm lucky enough to eventually be in a relationship, i'll have a lot less experience in navigating relationships (and sex) because – you're right, losing the virginity is the starting point of sexual experience, and not the endpoint. women like owls are a lot more valuable to the guys trying to do the whole "personal growth" thing than fools like you. interesting thing is at 20 there is only one group which is guys who want to get laid. this guy doesn't push you up against a pop machine. i didn't intent to hurt somebodies feelings and i'm a adult male virgin myself. that's why many experienced guys are crummy lays; they've convinced themselves they know how sex works, and can't (or won't) wrap their heads around the notion that every partner is unique and will have her own tastes and preferences. honestly, i'd be a lot more concerned about your feeling of foolishness than about being a virgin. but then i met my husband and found out he was a virgin (his attitude toward it was indifference, as people above suggested). both those guys able to communicate with you, flirt, date and in general "advance" the relationship up to the point of sex like anyone else? but then i met my husband and found out he was a virgin (his attitude toward it was indifference, as people above suggested). i'm not mocking male virgins, just people who think that it's perfectly reasonable to suggest that women should be having sex with people they aren't attracted to, but who then refuse to do the same themselves. just because you had good sex with virgins doesn't mean they/we don't go through pain, it is tragic but you don't understand why you seem to think being good in bed correlates to "oh why were you suffering your good in bed, that makes everything ok, all that suffering was wasted" completely. began to internalize the idea that only bad guys had sex, and that women were terrible idiots for having sex with those men. are here: home / masculinity / the “problem” with male virginityon monday, i talked a little about the toxic culture surrounding masculinity and how it hurts men.) the aggressively online dating guy who can’t believe he’s not married yet. you asked us if it was your looks holding you back, so how exactly have we been taking this thread off topic? there is nothing wrong with being a virgin… but sex is also enjoyable… and if you focus on enjoying your life and meeting people and having a full life you will more than likely be more attractive to someone else. came to this site because i saw the title and thought it would share the same sentiments that i have but it's the same old "there is nothing wrong with virginity, just focus on yourself and you will have sex some say day" which is funny because you are still focusing on virginity and sex. this applies more to women than men, but the old puritanical, anti-sex prejudices continue to influence even the male side. yours with anticipation, single for 2 years empowered woman (aka feminazi). they can’t bring themselves to approach women, so they don’t have opportunities to lose their virginity. a soon-to-be-single-again 30 year old, this is the sort of stuff that haunts my nightmares. or would that still shame male virgins who come calling, and i should instead just throw myself at men in the street whom i have judged to be too unattractive to have had much success with the ladies? we get the standard virginity loss narrative burned into our minds early on, reinforced over and over again by pop-culture until we start to believe it’s the trvth, carved into stone tablets delivered to us at the base of mount sinai."the second is that by focusing on being a virgin – making it part of your identity – you indulge in a form of confirmation bias; … "shit. i really do hate being a fumbling newbie at anything, but i really *really* hate the idea of being seen as the blushing, shy virgin about to get deflowered. you at all open to dating women who are your age or a tad older, or looking to meet more of them? for me, i wasn't wired into "normal" guy culture or hobbies that brought me into contact with women who would have shared my interests, which i suspected at the time was the right way to meet someone, and probably would have helped me come out of my shell earlier. broadly speaking there are two kinds of males who don’t have sex: males who are virgins because they don’t want to have sex (because of religious beliefs, lack of sexual interest or whatever) and males who want to have sex and (for whatever reason) still are virgins. maybe it matters that you still want to go to bed with this guy, this guy who's different and kind and smart and funny and can't fall in love. i just wanted to say this to give hope to men out there who may be virgins. although i lost my virginity a few years before, i had nearly 0% sexual experience. they told my brothers and i just to be admirable and desirable men and women will come flocking to us. with most issues, if we want to change the way that we treat male virgins, especially older ones, then we need to start with ourselves and our own relationship with our sexuality. no matter how old you get that's always a little bit intimidating. more than casual conversation scares me, or basically throws me off and i'm obviously nervous/anxious/inept and not confident, nothing flows because i've no experience, so for me it's not even liked "its just never happened" in the specific realm of chatting up girls, i'm like a nervous 13 year old…. it's definitely more of an issue during the middle stages than during the early ones – initially, my two attempts at relationships looked like dating a guy who could only hang out on week nights and dating a guy who could only hang out every other week. think it shouldn't be controversial to say that most people find the prospect of having sex for the first time latter in life, especially if its in their middle age years, as not thrilling. about the good job, fairly in shape but mildly socially awkward shy guy? to say nothing of holding down a job in addition to your education in the interest of actually having enough money for aforementioned food. but i didn't believe this about male virgins until i started hanging out with older male virgins.'ve dated people who seemed to have little experience but i certainly never asked them how much experience they had or whether they were virgins. it's basically like, if you don't act the way a "straight, white man" is supposed to act, then maybe you aren't deserving of all your straight white privilige (see straight white guys who "act gay," for example). for me, i wasn't wired into "normal" guy culture or hobbies that brought me into contact with women who would have shared my interests, which i suspected at the time was the right way to meet someone, and probably would have helped me come out of my shell earlier. i think my number was in the middle 30s (20 years of an average of 2 sexual partners per year), 3 women last year, last time i was asked, which she considered a perfect number: not a male slut, but also someone with enough "game" to not be desperate.

men’s disinterest in sexually inexperienced partners contradicts historical sexual scripts that stress feminine chastity and premarital virginity (abbott, 2000). i've convinced myself that i'm a great person, who contributes a lot to society and the fact that i'm a virgin does not make me a loser. they told my brothers and i just to be admirable and desirable men and women will come flocking to us."the second is that by focusing on being a virgin – making it part of your identity – you indulge in a form of confirmation bias; … "shit. expand on that second point: being a virgin doesn't change who you are as a person., given that you've never had a relationship to find out if it would cure your depression, and i've had relationships with depressed guys, suffered depression myself, and studied depression as part of my university education in psychology, i suspect that the subject is at very least more my expertise than yours. that way i could have enjoyed whatever relationship i had while it lasted instead of getting too caught up in making the relationship work, even though me and the woman i lost my virginity to were not really all that compatible. i'd only need him for three or four weekends per year. any sexually active woman can tell you there's pretty much no correlation between a guy's "number" and how good a lay he is., those of us who view women as people to be empathized with instead of an opponent to be battled appreciate the insight that, contrary to the dominant cultural narrative, some women have experiences very similar to the ones being described by guys. if you want a case study in humanity, 30-year-old single guys have pretty much all the bases covered. you say there is nothing wrong with being a virgin yet think that being in a relationship is some kind of good compared to being single. i have a very weird relationship with my virginity – and it's a penetrative virginity, i have made out with women, i've done naked petting, rarely, but it has happened – in that i want it gone but it's also defining me and my life's struggle. i think the "blushing shy virgin to be deflowered" mindset is one women are more likely to encounter from men they date, though, especially guys who are more into traditional gender roles. you can otherwise be living a full adult life with all its responsibilities but still be seen as an immature boy because your a virgin. lawful evil is the meticulously planned sort of villainy that requires the bad guy to be cool, collected and with contingency plans for everything. is, i was a virgin til i was thirty but one and a half year before that, i was rid of all pain. are also all the women's magazines that are filled with articles about "how to turn him on" and "how to keep his attention" and so on but don't say anything at all about expecting more from the guy than him just showing up. i honestly ask where you see women being told to seek out "flawed" men? i do folk dancing, and one time my partner wanted to take the male role, so i took the female role – it was fine until i reached one guy who basically pulled out of the dance rather than dance with me, and somehow the dance was rearranged without discussion so that i was dancing the male role again. i would never date a guy who reacted badly if he had to be shown how to do something, but i've never dated any guy who wasn't a virgin. read this column and the older "the 20, 30, and 40+ yeat old virgin" and while you make excellent points about the virgin stigma and how it shouldn't define us, i feel a bit that you tiptoe around the fact that it's entirely possible it may never happen at all. homecoming dress that year is , and your mom put it on the credit card. yet then you see these male virgins in their 20's and 30's who look up dating coaches and such to learn techniques for getting into their first sexual relationships that they couldn't seem to acquire from ordinary life experiences. course, most women (even the superficial ones) want a nice person as a partner – a friendly, funny and attentive guy., or 2 would judge a guy for seeing a prostitute, but would not judge a non-prostitute for her sexual history… well, citation still needed. true, there is a time limit for having children, but who would want to have a daughter with a man that would cast her into the “ugly old maid” category after just 30 short years of life. this applies more to women than men, but the old puritanical, anti-sex prejudices continue to influence even the male side. be honest – i also feel like a total loser for not having had a girlfriend (i'm nearly 30 years old). should stop at "there is nothing wrong with virginity" but then again this is some kind of site for insecure people so i understand if people don't share my views. is not about cultural constructs; pretending that adult male virgins are "not defective" is a denial of human nature. my bitterness and resentment made me a prime, self-pitying asshole who was focused on only one thing and one thing only: losing my virginity at all costs. after all, that kid is going to be with them for years and you may not.) an attractive guy can afford to behave more badly (of course he shouldn't in the long run), without having to fear the same instant rejection that an non-attractive person has to, when he behaves badly. second is that by focusing on being a virgin – making it part of your identity – you indulge in a form of confirmation bias; you see couples together and immediately assume that they’re fucking even though they’re on their first date. if those things make you anxious, then your trouble has nothing to do with being a virgin. but maybe it's just my perceptions as a lonely loser who feels jealous of other guys who can interact with women more openly and frequently than i'm able to? standard virginity loss narrative tells us that men are supposed to lose their virginity by a certain age – sometimes by age 18, sometimes by 21."in my experience, the problem that a lot of women have with older virgins is that it correlates highly with some pretty fucked-up attitudes, and can often be a flag for underlying issues. these were just some practicalities i know i may have to deal with being my age and virginal. again, perhaps i am wrongfully making assumptions about other people based on my own experience and for many males “being a virgin” is really only about fucking that one time and nothing else. it will continue to affect you, your life and everything you do it's not all "jack is bullying me for being a virgin" or tv, it's about being an animal, we feel like failures because technically we are., i count myself lucky that i was stubborn enough in high school to reject the 'must lose virginity' mantra.' to my full advantage, i'd just like to make a few points about male virgins from my perspective (other ladies feel free to jump in with your own thoughts! the majority of us feel it is your personality not your looks holding you back." you can get away with saying it–very occasionally–to close friends ("occasionally" being the key–nobody wants that friend who constantly demands to be told that they're not a loser, really by always putting themselves down). i have a very weird relationship with my virginity – and it's a penetrative virginity, i have made out with women, i've done naked petting, rarely, but it has happened – in that i want it gone but it's also defining me and my life's struggle. my thesis i wanted to highlight the fact, that i as a possibly not so conventionally attractive person would have to justify my attraction to conventionally attractive women, while a conventionally attractive guy who exclusively dates attractive women (because he can) doesn't have to justify himself. me a group of 30-year-old men and i’ll pick out one overgrown frat dude living with roommates, another guy who just dropped his two kids off at school, a few who are well into their careers and a couple soul-searchers looking for work. but i didn't believe this about male virgins until i started hanging out with older male virgins. i just hold out for 14 more years, i can be known as the crazy dragon lady. virgins that are quietly going about their business, and you have no idea that they are a virgin until they tell you on your third date with them, "hey, before we get too serious, there's something i ought to tell you…" yeah, those are the ones i recommend having sex with."otherwise you’re well into terra incognita and 40 year old virgin territory and nobody wants to be there because here there be dragons". the majority of us feel it is your personality not your looks holding you back.'t that just be a perception based on the phenomenon of shaming male virginity in the broader culture rather than reality?'s not even that: until about 1800 or so virginity was tied to the possession of an intact hymen.. some of you were willing to admit that my sentiment holds some truth in it. perhaps this is a cultural thing (i’m living in europe) but for me “being a virgin” for the second group is not mostly about nonsensical societal expectations to have had sex at a certain point in your live or the believe that having sex for the first time will magically make your life better, but rather that “being a virgin” past a certain point is a shorthand for underlying causes and the serious implications that follow from them. sure that's an option, but you're right that guys have a little more time. i always just feel like a fool or perv if i try or even think about letting someone know i like them… i tried just giving up on this completely but being a socially-dysfunctioning virgin that can't talk to girls is psychologically taxing as years go by, especially as family ask every so often about "any girlfriends? reality dictates that most of the men and women in my age range have already lost their virginity and accumulated more sexual experience and developed their own sexual tastes. dunno, get a transfusion from a 40 year old virgin or something? ha, i’m totally new lease on life guy (except i’m female. cus men aren't allowed to have feelings, we must be strong alpha grrrrrr hulk protect you (from all the guys trampling over themselves for your affection), we must be handsome and cool headed like luck starwalker, we must be cool, chilled like loki and the fonz, leather jackets always on, never looses there cool, always says the right things. and just as traditional masculinity is a fragile thing, any minor deviation from the virginity narrative throws the whole thing into disarray. this bastard who lost his virginity at 19 can freaking shut up about how its not such a great thing! not wanting to sub a man’s pay cheque does not make a woman a gold digger or a shallow wretch. consider that the only "good" quality offered of the man who's theoretically the reward is his looks–and maybe, in some cases, wealth or status that allows this "exciting" life–but is it suggested that the beautiful woman will get a guy who'll be faithful and respect her and do his half of the housework and manage his emotions maturely and so on? virginity is a statement, not a measure of anyone's worth. third possible response would be to acknowledge that it's likely that virginity is seen as a negative trait by many people in the dating pool (even with conflicting studies, i suspect this is the case), but remembering that almost everyone has a few traits that would poll like that when asked about in isolation.
