I’m 20 and the pressure of being a virgin is overwhelming
Ask Erin: I'm A Year-Old Virgin | Ravishly
This otherwise nice, normal, polite, and funny guy was horrified anyone in their 20s wouldn't be getting laid. It was like he thought " those " virgins were somehow unnatural mutants with no place in this world. But what this bro from Murray Hill didn't know and what I won't be the one to tell him, since I haven't spoken to him since , is that being a virgin in your 20s is waaaaay more common than people may think. Millennials in general aren't having as much sex as everyone once thought. We -- males and females alike -- apparently have fewer sexual partners than Gen-Xers and baby boomers did at the same age. And people younger than 20 are reporting fewer instances of first-time sexual intercourse than in previous generations.
I know 20 is young, but the moment you tell someone you're still a virgin, it's as if you told them you're living with a terminal illness. Artwork: Tess Emily Rodriguez. I think you would agree that twenty is pretty young. But the moment you tell someone you're still a virgin , it's as if you told them you're living with a terminal illness.
Keith McDorman walks into the back room of an Austin, Texas coffee shop. With his dirty-blond hair, light eyes, week-old beard, and striped button-down shirt, he looks like a younger, shorter, bohemian version of Bradley Cooper. He tosses his scooter helmet onto the wooden table, sits across from me at a booth that barely fits us both, and talks before I ask a question. That statement brings glances from studying college students. We opt for more privacy by heading outside, where we talk over a live rock band at a high table near a vegan food truck.
