    F**k sake I agree!
    As if innocence was a desirable characteristic anyway, naivety is ignorance!

    not really

    It is independent of innocence or lack of thereof

    It is that sometimes they both coincide - or beter still loss of virginity coincides with beginning of loss of innocence

    loss of innocence happens over some time - could be a while - might not be

    No you lose your innocence when you start masturbating and have used every swear word under the sun.

    I don't really think the two relate to each other in the way you're meaning to be honest...

    No. I really don't know what you mean with innocence - as if you're an ignorant little girl right up until you've slept with someone. What do you become then? Impure?

    Yes the moment the hymen breaks the girl descends from Snow White to a shrewd person who has seen the horrors of the world.

    There's no real reason why it would unless it was by something like rape. And even then it's not the loss of virginity that does it.

    How many people are inocent when they lose their virginity anyway?

    This = my words exactly!

    It means nothing! What is "innocence" anyway? And losing virginity is just having sexual intercourse. A totally natural thing. Yet there is still so much gratuitous and pointless modesty thrown around about losing virginity and sex in general.

    And about the whole "I'm proud to be a virgin" thing too... being a virgin or not a virgin is nothing to be proud of.

    What you could legitimately be proud of is if either you lost your virginity and you don't regret it, or if you said no to someone when you knew you would regret it. Then I would be proud.

    F them, you do what you want, when you're ready. I don't see what your sex life has got to do with them, anyway?


    Also, I'd describe someone as "innocent" if they were child-like or naive in their understanding of certain topics. If you're thinking about sex, you're no longer innocent. But that's not a bad thing. I kinda get the feeling that when people refer to innocence in relation to virgins, they have some strange idea that having sex means you've "sinned" in some way, or done a bad thing. It's more a sense of losing your "child-like innocence", becoming an adult e.g. thinking about/having sex. Never heard children being referred to as innocents?

    Even the phrase "losing your virginity" is retarded...you don;t lose anything...you just have sex for the first time, its a man-made concept.
