When i was 15 I lost my virginity to my boyfriend. Girls or guys do not push yourselves or others to do something you arnt ready to do. Sex is a big deal,espically to people who havnt experienced it. Make sure it is with someone you love and make it count.

Ask almost anyone about their first time, they'll tell you they werent ready, or to wait untill you were in love, or the all too common 'I regret it now'. I was 18, it was with a friend I had been growing increasingly close with over the past year. I was not about to take the risk of an unwanted pregnancy at 18, while I was in my first year of university. Please dont feel like hiding the fact that you're a virgin is a good thing, be open about it, and it will make eberything alot easier.

Jane 1

I'm an ordinary South African girl. I've recently admitted to myself that I'm a lesbian but it wasn't easy doing so. I've come out to my friends and my cousins but not to my mom yet. I suspect that she knows but I don't want to confirm it for her as yet: the last thing I want to hear is someone telling me it's just a phase. It helps that I've got a few friends who are also lesbian/ bisexual. I've also learnt that love just happens and you start to have a great ife once you begin to remain true to yourself.

I'm 16 years old and i think i am a lesbian. I've had boyfriends in the past but i've never been with a girl. The thing is that i think I'm in denial. I've kept trying to tell myself that I am not a lesbian. The last time i came out to my parents about something (It was the fact that i wasn't a Christian like them) they laughed and said i was too young to even by thinking about a choice like that. They still tell people I am a Christian. I guess that experience makes me think that they wouldn't support me. I don't know.


My name is Kirsten. I am 18 years old. My first crush was in Kindergarten on a girl.... My mother is extremely Catholic and is outspokenly against homosexuality. The area in which I live is very Christian. People are very openly against homosexuality and I fear how I would be treated if people knew. I am in the top of my graduating class. Straight A's. Going into either Geo or Astrophysics and Anthropology. I do not see a way to live both lives openly, and so, at least for now, i will remain silent.

I was 14 when i lost my virginity..Im almost 16 now. I wish i could go back in time and take it back, wait a lot longer then i did. My advice, wait till your completely ready, not just because your friends have done it and you haven't. Here is my story..

Las Vegas

I was one of the many cases of children born with H.I.V in the 90s. With my 21st right round the corner, every year i thank god for letting me live through another tough year.


im 16 and i am gay. i don't know how to tell a straight guy from a gay one. i came out when i was in 7th grade everyone new. i have lost and i have gained few friends. most or should i say all of my friends are girls. i live in a redneck county. i hate it all of the guys here are rude and hatefull. i go through hell everyday to live my life and to be happy.

Ben 1

My name is Ben, and I'm gay. I have told a few of my friends, so I am by no means open yet. I'm not afraid of how my peers at school would react, but I'm afraid of my parents reaction.

Jen 1

If you knew me you'd never thought I'd be the one to lose my virginity before I was married. I am 17. My boyfriend 18. We've been together for 4 months now.
