Is it a moment you’ll always remember, or one you wish you could forget?
Any way you look at it, losing your virginity is a crucial moment in your life. Whether you were the first in your grade in middle school or waited until marriage or true love, there’s an enormous and semi-unspoken emphasis placed around your first sexual experience that makes the whole moment a lot more nerve-wracking and monumental than it ought to be.
For many of us, the pressure around losing our virginity makes the first time a clumsy tussle in the dark, say, in our parents’ basement with a high school crush, or maybe in the car after that awkward dinner and a movie. Yeah, we’ve all been there, but who better to share their stories than our forthright friends Redditors?
Redditors were asked to recount how they lost their virginity, and their answers may just take you down memory lane.
Does your first time top these?
IMAPnut: “Walked to the store for condoms on his birthday. Awkward sex in his room with the TV blaring, followed by awkward “they know” dinner with his family.
“Lost mine in a hotel room shower at an airport hotel in Paris. I was in Switzerland, summer of grade 11, getting my last french credit through a summer program that gave me the opportunity to live abroad and live in a French community…”
“I was just getting in to the shower when i heard a knock on my door, it was one of the girls from my program. I asked what she wanted and she said ‘oh nothing what are you up to?’ i replied with ‘just about to have a shower,’ she came back with ‘oh great i’ll join you.’ And the rest is history, ever since then I’m a big fan of shower sex.”
