A New Dating Site For Virgins Only

A New Dating Site For Virgins Only
Love, Sex

If you're familiar with this blog, you know that I'm not sure what the hubbub about virginity is all about. While there is a much greater chance that someone will not have a sexually transmittable ailment, there's also a pretty decent chance that they will be rotten in bed (though some people may relish the ability to teach a lover how to do it like their way, the old Sinatra method). Frankly, I'm really only impressed when an attractive, socially-astute, clever person doesn't inadvertently try it or just give in out of curiosity. But that's just me.

At any rate, per MSNBC.com, some people feel VERY differently. In fact, some people prefer their muffins completely unbuttered. The website YouAndMeArePure.com purports to be an alternative to all those other dating sites in which the goal is to put you-know-what you-know-where without putting a ring on you-know-what.

MSNBC.com's Helen A.S. Popkins picks off some low-hanging fruit in her dissection of the site and its fetishization of cherry pie. In that, we are on the same page. Furthermore, Popkins takes umbrage with their mention of a virginity auction, though for the wrong reason. One Natalie Dylan raffled off her first time for greater than $5 million (allegedly). Though some third-wave feminists (or are we on fourth-wave?) likely reckon that a $5 million payday for a deflowering is sexually positive in that it's lots of money without a pimp or mamasan. Virginity = Productivity?

In my learned opinion, adults can more or less do what they please with their genees. It's probably a bad idea to pressure or be pressured into displacing a v-card and it's a supremely bad idea to bang, first time or no, without birth control and disease protection. If dating a virgin is important to you, have at it, particularly if you also haven't played any hide-the-pickle in your own time. But refraining from intercourse doesn't really make you a better person and, if you do everything but, you're really only protecting yourself from unwanted pregnancy, rather than disease, emotional trauma and other "problems" that go along with boning.
