A Chinese woman’s virginity is worth $5,000, at least in this instance. A woman referred to only by her surname Chen was awarded that amount yesterday by a Chinese court after she sued a man she was dating (and later learned was married) for “violating her right to virginity.” She alleged that he pretended to be single, vowed to marry her, and bedded her, according to Shanghai media via AFP; one outlet goes so far as to specify that they consummated the relationship while on a trip to Singapore late last year. The South China Morning Post reports “Li” ended things soon after the trip. Looking to talk to him, Chen went to his home in February and discovered his wife. The suit followed. Read more on Newser…
I lost my virginity at age 15, in a double wide trailer. I remember his abs glowing under the black-light and the mood music–a Ginuwine album on repeat. I had snuck out on a snowy school night, holding my shoes in my hand. I felt sort of frozen and surreal, somehow knowing this was the night, and barely noticing the fact that I was just wearing wet socks in his car.
There isn’t much to describing first time sex. I felt more like I was watching myself from above than experiencing it, thinking Oh my god, this is sex! or Just move your hips with Ginuwine. Afterward, naked and side by side, I stared into his eyes, my heart feeling huge. My virginity had become a burden that past year and this was, surely, a turning point in my life. He suddenly locked eyes with mine and opened his mouth. I wanted to remember every second of this moment.
“Want a Capri Sun?” he asked. Keep reading »
My story sucks, so I’m not going to tell it. BUT I will tell you that Willie Nelson was on the stereo, a String Cheese Incident (a terrible jam band) poster was on the wall, and the guy was of the opposite political affiliation than me. But what about the rest of you? We sent our girl Lori out to ask total strangers about their first times. Shockingly, she didn’t get all that many dirty looks! Keep reading »
Do you remember what was playing when you lost your virginity? Someone at The Frisky lost hers to Willie Nelson [Oh, heck, it was me. -- Editor], which is an interesting choice, no? Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan lost his to Warrant’s “Cherry Pie,” and Cobra Starship’s Ryland Blackinton was listening to the Home Improvement theme song. In a Virgin Mobile survey, 25 percent chose “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as the best song to lose your virginity to, which is just too sweet. But, like, how many guys have that in their iTunes? That song beat out “Feels Like the First Time” by Foreigner, “Like a Virgin” by Madonna, and “Give It To Me” by Timbaland. Basically, those choices make us want to vomit, they’re so clichÃ©.
Two other interesting, unrelated pieces of information:
The View co-host Sherri Shepherd has her phone set to play Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable” or Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” when her ex calls, and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi’s phone plays Rihanna’s “Umbrella” whenever his boyfriend calls. [PR Newswire] Keep reading »
