The twenty-first century is an era of immediacy. It's also an era of peer pressure...big time.
For either a male or female who has not had sex with a woman...effectively a virgin...it is considered a sign of weakness, cowardice, homosexuality. So many young men and women feel pressured to lose their virginity just so they can fit into their peer groups.
Abstaining from sex until it is the "right" time for you, which doesn't mean having sex in order to appease your peer group, is a mature and wise decision, and one you should be proud of...it will happen when the time is right, and as such, the experience will be a memorable one, one that is a happy memory.
