Virgins, it turned out, seem to flock together despite reporting that they weren’t necessarily interested in dating fellow virgins.

Those with less sexual experience tended to rate the profiles of people who had little sexual experience as more attractive, compared to their ratings of the profiles that indicated more sexual experience.

There really is someone for everyone and his day and his girl will come along soon now he's open and ready for it No not personally.

I actually have a family friend who is still a virgin at 36 and that's where this question comes from.

The virgins who were studied were between 18 and 26 — all older than 17, which, again, is the average Americans lose their virginity, but they were also younger than those relative few who make it to their 30s and beyond as virgins.

(Data from the Centers for Disease Control indicates that just 1.9 percent of Americans in their early 30s have never had sex; by their late 30s, that drops to 0.9.) It also exclusively focuses on heterosexuals; those with other sexual orientations might have other barriers to sexual experience that aren’t consideredhere.

The researchers argue that this may be an example of “assortative pairing” — that is, the notion that people tend to prefer potential sexual partners with a similar amount of experience toreasons.

Beyond that, there are some other obvious shortcomings to the study.

It would mean something if you took your relationship to that next level.

But you might also have this inner pressure that you would want the sex to be good for them Are you in this situation Sarah? I actually have a family friend who is still a virgin at 36 and that's where this question comes from.

If so its quite rare and if he respects you is kind and loving takes you for who you are and loves you then hes a keeper It would completely put me off. I'd be thinking he's either got emotional problems, physical problems or can't relate to women. What works for one woman doesn't necessarily work for another! I'm sure this man could have a wonderful sex life with a person who knew that 'good sex' was more in the mind than physically, Good sex starts way before the bedroom!
