    Is there such a thing as a 40 year old virgin? Fact or Myth. How can you classify one?

      From a medical standpoint yes a 40 year old virgin can exist. In my life I have met them older than that. I spent years working with the developmentally disabled, you would be surprised how many people in this category are virgins all their lives. There are many parents of these "children" who won't let a doctor check them internally or even let them do pap smears. I know a few personally.

        good answer though, I have sometimes wondered how certain handicapped people would ever be able to become intimate with somebody else.  I would imagine they would need to find somebody with another similar disability.

      What difference would it make to begin with?

      Only religious folk put a value on virginity. wink

        I knew on one guy and oddly he was good looking with a great fear of handling women.

        There are also mono sexual people out there. I just hope they give themselves flowers with a dine and dance

      Of course there is such a thing. Where have you been all your life? You've heard of nuns and monks I suppose? And sometimes people are just asexual. It's unusual but not weird. I envy people for whom sex is irrelevant. They're not slaves like the rest of us.

          He is not so bad looking, if I was gay I might consider giving him a date, and maybe have him change some other odd thing too.

    So true. I came across many such folks, they're virgin because of their religious (+spiritual) beliefs.

    Holy Crap... I'm not even sure which comment I want to jump on first.  This could possibly be a whole night of arguing smile

    @Cagsil Yep.  Especially those of us that want to get a good dowry for our daughters.  I'm hoping for at least 4 goats for my Lily wink

    @Skyfire... And you took it what Cagsil said and ran with it? Seriously?  Okay, faith has nothing to do with many of the reasons that someone would choose to remain a virgin... the most important of which would be "I haven't found anyone I love enough to have sex with"  *sighs* I'm going to sound old here, I just know it... but, sex isn't like going to the club or hanging out... It isn't something you should just do for entertainment.  Its called intimacy for a reason.  If no other time in your life is special, the first time should be.  Special is not "Damn I'm bored... wanna do it?" Or "Hey I have known you for two weeks, and I just know I Love you" 

    @AgesMGMT Wow.  I mean really, Wow...  First of all, you wondered about this... really?  And you came to the conclusion that a disabled person can only have sex with another disabled person with the same disability?  You reached this conclusion after thought?

    So, its like a "Blind doing the blind" kinda thing?

    So what happens if a husband becomes paralyzed in an accident?  Does that mean his wife has to fling herself down a flight of stairs repeatedly so they can have sex? Or is getting drunk enough that she can't stand close enough?

    I would guess that the majority of disabled people have sex lives that are as rewarding as everyone else's.  I'm also pretty sure that they are allowed to pursue relationships outside their disability.  Unless I missed a memo somewhere... 

    @ Jonathan God for you!  Its a brave choice.

      You're a good looking guy, Jonathan. You need to go out there and talk to girls! Go get'em kid!!!

        Women, Klara, not girls. Need them fully grown.
        I have to admit very few women give me the level of excitement I'm looking for. Perhaps I'm too picky, but it is a world of my own making.

          I knew a guy who preferred younger women because they had not learned the b#tch attitude. Women intheir late 20's and 30's are more prone to be set in their ways and will most likely bring you to their territory. This doesn't mean they don't care about you. Its just that you'll have to be a lot more tollerant and flexible with them if you want to get anywhere with them.

    It could be true. Mainly cos of religious belief, disability or people that have high moral standard. But, in this age of pervasion & great disregard for morals, it is hard to get...

    sensible people value sex. sensible people value celibacy. I would be proud to be a life-long virgin. Why the stigma attached to not sharing your body with other people? Too much emphasis is placed on the need for sex. We have created a need.
    Thank God for parents who protect their disabled children or adults. It seems you can't rely on society for that.
