Time for a Lusty Vegan reroute! This time, I’m talking about virginity!
This morning I Googled “Virginity” and under news, Lolo Jones was the first topic to come up—and the second, third, fourth, fifth and…you get it. In case you don’t know, the smokin’ hot track and field Olympian has made headlines lately because she is a 29 year old virgin saving herself until marriage.
What’s better than a foxy, fierce, talented athlete? One with a sense of humor—Jones has made jokes about how abstinence is harder than her Olympic training. Since touting her sexless status (on Twitter, no less…her followers jumped by 20,000 almost immediately) Jones has been trending. But it does bring up the idea of chastity, and of saving yourself until marriage.
Jones is religious, and also stated in her recent HBO interview that she thinks her virginity is a gift she should give her husband. While the mere idea of abstinence makes my lady parts extremely pissy, I think saving your virginity for marriage is awesome if that’s what you’re into.
For many people, the first time they had sex is extremely memorable—for better, or for worse. It reminds me of my favorite movie ever, Forrest Gump, when good ol’ Tom Hanks delivers the lines “You know it’s funny what a young man recollects? ‘Cause I don’t remember bein’ born. I don’t recall what I got for my first Christmas and I don’t know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I made sweet sweet love…”
Yeah okay, I made that last bit up. Manipulating things until they serve my purpose is a hobby of mine. Continue reading…
