Losing your virginity means something different to everyone. For some girls, it’s a really, really big deal – one of the most important moments of their lives. For other girls, it’s not so serious. And that’s okay, because when it comes to having sex for the first time, everyone’s experience is going to be different. Here are some facts and myths about your first time.
#1. Valuing virginity protects girls and women
In fact, valuing virginity puts girls and women at risk of violence, abuse, and assault by members of a society that believes a woman’s worth lies in her sexual behavior. Virginity violations of girls’ and women’s sexual and reproductive rights and health occur every day in the name of preserving and protecting girls’ virginity, delaying sexual activity, or controlling the circumstances under which girls and women lose their virginity.
