Losing your virginity, or having sex for the first time, is an important life event for a lot of people.
Some feel really strongly about saving their first time sex for someone special, or until they’ve reached a certain age. Others feel that sex should be saved until after marriage.
Whatever sex means to you – deciding when the time is right is a very personal decision. Regardless of your intentions, some people's first time works out exactly how they want it to, and other people’s may not. Even if you regret it, how you move forward is what matters most.
