Recent debates about TV sexuality have addressed everything from the nudity gap between men and women to the difficulty of choreographing sex scenes that don't appear either miserable or risible. But missing from this discussion is the sudden appearance of a much more interesting and nuanced archetype: the adult male virgin.
A recent survey reveals the new national trend of shaming women for their 'virgin' status. Women are continually torn between wanting independence and wanting a relationship, and therefore, they are labelled as either 'sl*ts' or 'virgins' — so what does this say about our culture?
If you're embarrassed because you're a decade or so away from becoming the female 40-year-old virgin, consider this.

This explains a lot for the rest of us!
"Your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You wanna do it with a great guy ... someone who really cares about and understands women." 'Girls' star Lena Dunham had a lot to share about her first time. Wait, her first time doing what?
There are lists of questions I ask as a matchmaker. There are the boring questions such as “what do you do for a living” and “do you want children” to the deal breakers “do you smoke, drink, listen to country music” and then the fun questions. Fun questions are the topics you share with your girlfriends after two cosmos, though you’re sharing yours with a stranger in her matchmaking office all in the search for love. These are the stories that make YOU the perfect match – for someone!
Yes, this is a real thing: a website is auctioning of the virginities of a 20-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man and filming the experience for a documentary on sexual relations.
Rather than honestly talking to me about sex when I was younger, my mother just told me, "If you ever have sex before you're married, I'm going to send you to a convent." She would never tell me why, and always got mad when I asked her, "If premarital sex is so bad, why was I born five months after your wedding?" Whoops. Yeah, I was a brat.
In recognition of his pledge of virginity until marriage, New York's Museum of Sex has offered famous fundamentalist football player Tim Tebow a chance to take a closer look at what sex is all about. Beyond making Jesus cry, I mean.
College movies always make college girls look so debauched. You know what I mean — casual sex, chicks kissing chicks, and, of course, that whole "Girls Gone Wild" thing.

By SMF Marcus Osborne for GalTime.com It’s been a while since I really ticked someone off. I mean, I’ve been on a serious streak of low-keyness. This is a clear indication that I’m going soft. Not that I’m intentionally trying to incite a digital riot over here, but I do try to challenge conventional wisdom and get men and women open and honestly communicating. Soooooo…. ..let’s talk virgins!
By Meagan McCrary Being a virgin in college can be a real drag. When all your girlfriends swap stories of passionate love making, scandalous screwing and one-night-standing, leaving you with nothing to contribute to the conversation, it’s easy to feel like you’re the odd woman out. It’s also easy to feel like you’re missing out. Combine the two and you might start to feel like you should just hurry up and lose your damn virginity already!
A new study may have you regretting losing your virginity in the backseat of your high school boyfriend's car. The latest research claims that women who have sex for the first time in their teens are more likely to get divorced.
