    Does the value of virginity decrease with age?

    It's ironic how society teaches young women in particular to place a high value on their virginity. Most valuable things increase in value over the years such as gold, art, diamonds, and until recently real estate. While being a virgin at age 19 or 22 might be precious to some people very few of us place a high value on virgins who are 30, 40, 50 or more years older. In fact we start to think something must be wrong with them! (Is this a form of societal hypocrisy?)

    A matter of interest and enjoyment for the entire world is what a women treasures the entire life to share only with the one and only she is in love with. It is not a physical status or a matter of high money value for a women but a feel of sacrifice and the way she expresses her love for a man which is next to impossible for  someone to understand.
    Thus age can ,in my opinion ,hardly reduce the value and the feel of love from the core of her heart that she wishes to shower on her only love at any age.

    I don't know that society on a whole (at least in the US) places much of a value on virginity at any age.  Times have changed so much with regard to what society approves or values.

    I think the value of virginity is for the individual.  It that is their belief as it is mine that sexual contact should be reserved for the one you marry - then it is of great value to the virgin and that is what is important.

      dufsmom, I think you are right about (society as a whole) may not place much value on virginity however I believe a lot of (parents) still use terms like (value/precious) in hopes their teens won't engage in sex prior to marriage. Especially their da

    Virginity in itself has no value. However, sexual health is important.

    I think she'll find that by 70 there is little chance of finding love, and virginity won't be a consideration.

    I'm inclined to think it does decrease with age, although I'd say it has value as long as just before 40, of course it may have value to the virgin and I'd go along with that.

    However it strikes me not many, male nor female, place much value on virginity at all, which is a shame, but I'm all for fairly young marriage with no premarital sex for either party, men's licence to behave however they like has been tolerated for far too long and it's no wonder the girls now go so mad in their own particular way.

    I would like to see a much higher standard set and maintined, and ecouraged, but doubt it would have much success, sadly.
