The hormones that surge through your body when you have sex can sometimes cause strong emotions afterwards. Some people believe in the concept of virginity. However, the traditional definition of virginity, which is the first time a person has penetrative penis-vagina intercourse, leaves out a lot of other types of sex, including oral sex and anal sex. Today, many people think the concept of virginity is antiquated and places unnecessary pressure on people to either have or not have sex.
Having sex for the first time is a huge milestone in a lot of people's lives. Many of us spent our teenage years talking about whether we were ready, what it would be like, and who had and hadn't done it. But it may be time to rethink the way the way we talk about the concept of losing our virginity.
