Losing Your Virginity In Your 20s Means Better Relationships

A recent study shows that waiting for sex and losing your virginity later in life makes for better and healthier romantic relationships.

Loving Couple in BedHey chastity belt! Waiting for sex leads to great relationships.

“When did you lose your virginity?”

This is a question that many women are afraid to answer. Why? Because we don’t want to be judged. If I say I first had sex at 12, you may think I am sexually perverse. If I say I first had sex at 25, you may deem me prudish.

There’s no winning here. However, a recent study from the University of Texas showed that women who wait to have sex have better sex lives and better relationships.

Psychologist Paige Harden was curious about the correlation between the age one’s first sexual encounter and healthy romantic relationships. She worked with 1,659 female sibling pairs ranging from the ages of 16 to 29. She grouped them according to the age of their first sexual experience: “early,” “on time,” and “late.” “Early” meant they lost their virginity at 15 or younger; “on time” ranged between 15-19; “late” was anytime after 19 year old.

The results? Those who locked up their vagina with a chastity belt had more satisfying relationships and marriages. Who knew sexless nights would pan out so well?

Being a late bloomer myself I can attest to this. We’re pickier about with whom we share our private parts. Harden says it’s also because women who wait are more emotionally mature. I still feel like I’m a junior in high school so I can’t agree with that.

Personally, I think the acceptable time for sex is when you are really ready. Usually that happens when we are older. So I’m leaning towards the late bloomers here. And not just because I was one of them.
