# Virginity
Open thread: Go on, tell us about your first time...
All the cool kids are doing it.


Whether it was with your first crush on your parents’ bed or with the love of your life in some fabulously romantic setting, there is usually a decent story to tell.

All this week we’re running our sex series and we’d like to hear from you. We want to hear about how you lost your virginity – even if it seems like a boring story to you.

  • How old were you?
  • Who was it with and where did the ‘activity’ take place?
  • Did everyone know where everything went or was it horribly awkward?
  • Were you happy with it afterwards or do you wish you’d waited/done it with someone else?
