Being a virgin has turned into something wrong instead of something good. Boys and girls are losing their virginity as young as 8 or 9 now. People that are still virgins are looked upon as not cool or less of a person. As a 21 year old virgin, I’m here to tell you that you are still a great person. I’m a Christian and I believe that God wants us to stay pure until marriage.
I want virgins to be comfortable with keeping their virginity because we are doing the right thing. Society is making sexual activity a thing through television, movies, music, and magazines. It’s okay to be a virgin because you do not have to accidentally be contracted to diseases, don’t have to worry about thinking you’re pregnant, and you will not be emotionally and mentally connected to whomever you date.
I’ve received great comments about being a virgin, such as, “wow that’s really good. I wish I’d never lost mine.”, “continue to keep it until you’re married because these boys aren’t serious about you.”, and “wow it’s rare to hear people say they’re virgins.” I’ve also heard bad comments such as, “I know your life is boring without sex.”, “You’re a virgin? You should try having sex with someone. It’s really fun.” , and “how could you not have sex for all these years? That’s weird.”
If you are comfortable with being a virgin that does not mean that you should look at sexually active people differently. I have sexually active friends, and I have never looked at them differently. They should feel the same way. Even though the media makes virgins look wrong, being a virgin is nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud of what you believe in because God is proud of the way you are keeping your virginity. Don’t lose your virginity because everyone wants you to or because your friends lost theirs.

Prayer: Lord bless the people who are reading this post to feel confident about serving You. Help the ones who are struggling with the thought of keeping their virginity. Let them know that You are proud of their decision. Give them the strength to keep moving in the right direction with You in mind, not man. In Your name, Amen!
Ephesians 5: 3-4 –  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;  Neither filthiness, foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
