Losing Virginity Stories – What Young People Find on YouTube
Losing your virginity is a topic that every person will engage at some point in time. Whether you decide to engage in sex or not, that choice is being made based on the information you have about intercourse, the way your were raised, the values you’ve acquired, and the relationships you are engaging in.
For many people, the choice about having sex is difficult to make. Sometimes people are not comfortable discussing sex with their family and friends. Doing private research can be a way to educate yourself and make a decision about what you want to do. YouTube is often a source of research for “how to”. But how do we know if the information that we are finding on YouTube is accurate. Unfortunately, sometimes you don’t know if a source is reliable or not unless you have a reputable source to compare it to. And then, what if the information does not match, how do you know which source is the right one. Hopefully I can shed some light on the topic of virginity and can help you spot some of the sources that are not reputable.
Losing your virginity can be a scary and complicated event. When we are young and curious about sexuality, it is important for us to get quality information. Please, be choosy about the videos that you watch. Boys, don't be fooled by videos that make it seem like women want to be controlled and treated like objects. Girls, do not be fooled by videos that make it seem like you have to do what a guy wants to keep a relationship. Both men and women having sex need to feel equal in the situation and comfortable with what you are each doing in bed with someone.Thanks for watching Violet's Practical Help.
