"So many answers as it means alot of different things to different people. To me a person kinda has two virginities, one they lose when they actually have full penatrative sex and the other is the emotional bond you feel when you have sex for the…"

"I agree that there are different stages of losing your virginity. But I think that you have officially lost your virginity once you have had sex,that being sex with a partner of the same or the opposite sex."

Kendra Herrick replied to Cathal (billythehick)'s discussion Definition of virginity

A Little Grieving Music.

I didn't know Jazz well enough for it to be my place to eulogise her, and talking about myself is all I know how to do. So you'll have to forgive me for not focusing on her memory here as much it deserves, I have a lot of disparate feelings to decompile.

A Clockwork Orange was my Hallowe'en costume of choice the day I met Jasmine. I was decked out in white like a droog, with a truly terrible homemade cardboard bowler hat. I was in Porters, reading an Empire magazine that was probably… Continue

briefly remeniscing about the '90s

Watching the '90s Sabrina (no, not the teenage witch) on tv, with a

terribly cast Harrison Ford and a remarkabley young Greg Kinnear chasing

whatever-happened-to Julia Ormond, directed by dead-now Sydney Pollack.

Last time I saw this film ...I

was in primary school, I remember we had the tv in the kitchen (which

was rare) and it was the old tv with buttons on it numbering 1 to 9. I

remember my…

Ode to the Fate of Humanity (poem)

Thought this one was lost to the sands of time, found it recently in an old portfolio. Enjoy.

Within my heart there is a hole,

I know only one thing will fix it.

Every night it haunts my soul

I can’t escape the chocolate biscuit.

I see them standing on the shelf

Goading me, just eat one bit.

How can resist those twin threats

Of chocolate + biscuit

One or other would be fine,

Not to know I would not miss it

How wonderfully those tastes… Continue

the maiden man returns

Well that was an astounding waste of time.

False alarm folks, I remain resolutely a member of the unfucked.

But am coming back to the opinion that possibly this is the way i am destined to be.

You see i spent the last week before the weekend oscillating increasingly erratically from fear to eagerness. First I wanted to more than anything, then scared shitless, and back and forth until i sweat myself to death. By the time the actual day rolled round i was a bundle of… Continue

the maiden man

i sit at this computer a maiden man of 21.

And though a lot has happened to the world in those 21 years,

Wars, famines, genocides, tragedies, travesties, torment and terror,

I'll be honest with you.

I really just spend the whole time thinking about sex.

This is a completely natural thing, but it's also completely natural to have actually done something about it by now and i haven't. If we want to get technical it's natural to get eaten by a wolf as soon as… Continue

Ok, draw me a large man, about 6 foot 4, very muscular (but real muscular, not perfectly chiseled. Roundish-body), Auburn hair, iehter shoulder-length hair or a beard (whichever looks better, haven't decided which yet) lopping off a zombie's head with a scythe. It makes sense in context.

28, but not everybody reading is. i think it's possible to talk about sex and marriage in a way that isn't obscene, and i hope most people in this site are inteligent enough to be able to process the discussion even though they might be minors. but then i believe in being honest with kids.

Oh hey. Yeah, I thought about featuring "a good chiding" because I really liked it. Buut... Bastard in the first line isn't something I though would be front page appropriate. Haha.

Your poems are really lovely. I hope you keep writing. :]

Haha. You're most certainly welcome! :D I saw it on the front page. Noticed it was a poem. and BAM! I clicked. I love poetry. And really, you have some lovely stuff :)
