Everyone doesn't progress through life at the same rate, so why is it that some look down and insult others for not losing their virginity by a certain age? I'm 24 and had sex for the first time only a few months ago, in May of this year. The girl didn't know I was a virgin at first, even though she should have deduced such by how poor my performance was. Once I told her, she immediately wanted me gone; she was cold-hearted. You'd think that she would have been more sensitive to the issue or a little more accommodating. Damn her!
Anyhow, my question isn't based on my experience only, but also on my observations of people discussing the issue.
One thing that really bothers me about this is the double standard placed on males in regard to when they should lose it and the role they should play in sex; males are praised for losing it as soon as possible and have the burden of doing most of the work during sex (it seems). WTF is up with that?
