“If you’re confused, I’ll just say that it’s the most common one to be kept the longest (by non-Catholics).”
My parents never had “the talk” with me. We never discussed sex, not the technical how-to, nor the philosophical meaning. They were busy, preoccupied with their own chaos, so I gathered my information about it as I went along, from books and friends and friend’s older brother’s porn collections.. I figured out what I needed to know, but I didn’t realize that virginity was a thing that some people save for true love, or some semblance thereof, until I only had one virginal penetration point left. You know the one…if you’re confused, I’ll just say that it’s the most common one to be kept the longest (by non-Catholics). Now, since I am a true romantic at heart, I thought the idea of saving something for true love was really sweet, and decided to save my anal virginity for someone special.
For years after making that decision, it never came up. I’m not sure if that’s because it was the 90’s, and backdoor play didn’t really come into vogue focus until post-millennium, or because I was mostly sleeping with guys after last call, who were too drunk to do anything that required effort (bc any drunken fool can fall into an open vagina, but a lady’s bum requires a considerable amount more finesse). Then, when I was 25, I fell in love. However, it was with a man who was…gifted…with very, very large equipment. So I rethought my plan, and decided to wait until marriage, thinking that if this guy would be the one, I’d have an entire lifetime to work up to the feat, and if this man was not to be my betrothed, whoever was would surely have less manhood to work with, making the special act less intimidating.
