Virginity: a practicum.Posted: March 10, 2015
The March 2015 issue of Wired is about sex. They asked me to contribute an anecdote dealing with sex and science, so I immediately thought of how I lost my virginity. (Though I hate putting it that way. Can we say “made my sexual debut”?) HOW it deals with science is something you’ll have to see for yourself—scroll to the bottom of the page here.
I love this story because it’s about being entirely in control of one’s sexuality, something I also owe to my partner at the time, who was patient and gentle. I wish every virgin the same.
