Losing Virginity.

Leave a comment

In class, we watched How to Lose Your Virginity. This documentary really opened my eyes to the different realities that women face when considering their virginity. I never realized that there are so many different thoughts and views about what losing one’s virginity may entail. It opened my eyes that women are strongly stigmatized into categories based on whether or not they have had sex or not; and even then they are judged on who, how many, when, how old, love vs sex, and what each of these categories can turn into in a woman’s head. We are put into these boxes of who does what with who, instead of who we are as people, as humans, not based off of sex.
