Do Men Really Want to Do the Things They See in Porn?

How Old Were You When You Lost Your Virginity?

In a hard-to-believe fit of modesty, sexy funny lady Tina Fey revealed to David Letterman last night that she was 24 before she lost her virginity and "couldn't give it away." (I'm incredulous about the latter claim — not that she was 24.)

I don't think I know anyone who waited that long, but everyone has her reasons for delaying sex. Honestly, I think being ready to have sex is better than "getting it out of the way" as I hear some people describe their motivations for having sex for the first time.

I had a good first experience, but it happened before I was 24! At what age did you lose your virginity? If you want to see the clip of her revelation,

I was with my bf for almost 4 years and I was 21 when I lost mine happily in our new house. We were both virgins thankfully and we are proud of ourselves for waiting that long. My bf have known eachother for almost 7 years now and are still together - engaged to be married. I waited on the right one instead of just anyone. I didn't see the point in doing it early. We were going to wait for marriage, but we want a nice wedding and can't afford it just yet. We couldn't resist eachother after waiting nearly 4 years, so we finally did it. It was unplanned, but we were just happy being together.   My little sister lost her's early and had 2 kids before age 20. Her husband and father of the girls cheated on her and now they're separated. My neice's are beautiful, but I didn't want that kind of situation for myself. My fiance' and I are planning on children after the wedding, we have two great dogs that we adopted, and we enjoy spending time together while we still have it. I am so glad we saved ourselves for eachother, so it wouldn't be weird or uncomfortable and there's nothing to be jealous or ashamed about.

My sister was actually about 23/24 when she lost her virginity and I was 18 when I lost mine but we are 7 years apart so it was a close span..

I have already answered here (post number 45) so won't repeat that, but you can look for the post if you are interested.. I'm posting again because what I do think here is that regardless of whether someone first had sex at 12, 30 or still has not had sex in their 40s, it is their choice and we should not judge.or make rude comments about their choice.

18, and he was surprised I was really a virgin because in 10 yrs' time, he had never met one. We had been in love for a few months and since he was too drunk to break my cherry, we set a date for six weeks later. It was painless and wonderful and I had an orgasm the first time. Love! I recommend it with sex!

I was 24 and I lost it to my husband, who was 25 and also a virgin. I know it's not for everyone, but it was the best decision I've ever made. By waiting, I knew enough about birth control to know not to get pregnant right away and by only having one partner, I never had to worry about STDs or him wanting me to try weird freaky crap that some other chick did. Plus, knowing that I was the first person to give my husband all his sexual experience makes me feel like somewhat of a sex goddess, if that makes sense. And to anyone that thinks that monogamous sex=boring sex, that's totally untrue.
