    It seems like it is the only thing on a lot of people's minds. Why do teenage boys as young as 13-14 want to lose their virginity so badly? Why do people think it's bad if they're still a virgin over the age of 25? Are emotional connections just not as important anymore? I just don't like how people complain about being a virgin. The virginity shouldn't matter, they should be complaining about other way more important things over that like being unemployed or not being in a loving, long-term relationship (if they're much older; younger teenagers should be focusing on their friendships and planning their future, and definitely not on sex). It really upsets me that it's the only thing that some people seem to care about. Society is so sexualized and I really don't like it. I'm not saying that sex is at all a "bad thing" but it really shouldn't be that big of a thing (when not being used for the purpose of reproducing). Teenagers are having sex everywhere and are making other teenagers and older persons feel pressured into it, and feel as though they are being judged for not doing it.

    This is why sex ed should be nornalised earlier and we should stop censoring because of boobs.

    Loads of mates I know get very depressed about their lack of action and girls take advantage of them for that.

    It's similar to asking why should anyone care what others think of them. On paper there is no reason to care but for most people who live as part of a society it's actually quite important to be liked and valued by the other members.
