All over the internet, most forums are dominated by Europeans and Americans. I've noticed that people from USA especially have a mindset that they need to lose their virginity by the time they finish high school. Similar trends could be seen for some European cultures. [Google/Search for average age of virginity loss worldwide] Back here in Asia, countries like the Arab and Gulf countries, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka hold virginity as highly significant, a measure of their morality. By virginity I don't mean the western/Christian definition of people participating in penetration sex, I mean all sexual activity that can be done by two or more people. (doesn't count masturbation) For me, I would still consider myself very conservative being an Indian but I am not displeased/disgusted by people having pre-martial sex. Kids and teens should abstain, but that's just my viewpoint. So what are your views about virginity? Has your country's culture played a great influence on this viewpoint?
