Overrated Virginity

A big debate is happening among some bloggers about virtues and pitfalls of virginity/chastity. Go to this page and follow the related links. As is natural with such debates, issues of religion, morality, rationality, independence, personal freedom etc have come up. Nothing wrong with that.

But one missing ingredient in this debate, often woefully under-represented, is the simple fact that sex with a virgin female(and I suspect a virgin male too, though I can not present first-hand evidence) is not as much fun. It is always more enjoyable doing it with a woman who knows what she is doing. So virginity is overrated in more ways than one. And it is as much a "gift" as badly fitting shoes that bite.

Now if only this fact were more well known, there would not be as many suicide bombers.
