Why are people so crazy about Purity?

hmb12 hmb12
I'm wondering why people are so crazy about the purity of women, or even purity in general. Sex shouldn't be a taboo. I feel like people are so convinced by society that sex is a bad thing, and girls turn around and decide to be sexually active in some ways, but to save vaginal intercourse for marriage. I personally think your sexual life shouldn't belong to your future husband/wife, it should belong to YOU, and nobody should be ashamed of themselves over their "purity".

I'm not aware of an obsession of purity outside of religious communities...no one has ever made me feel ashamed about my sexual history, not even my doctors or other professionals where that information is relevant. But, I do have a strong personality and I own myself and it becomes pretty clear from the get-go that I would not allow someone to put me in a position of shaming me or judgment.

Makes sense to me.

I never thought I was less "pure" after the first time I had sex. Nor did I think the man I first had sex with was "given" anything. We shared something.

I never thought I was less "pure" either. I always say...I think my vagina is purely a vagina, so I can't be less "pure."

I can't stand what purity and virginity represent.

Exactly. Sex is an experience and a way to show someone you love them, lust after them, or for emotional affirmation (and countless other reasons). There's nothing to be ashamed about, says the employee of one of, if not the most sex-positive site on the planet.

thanks, glad people on here see it that way too. I just have seen so many people say their relationship is strong because they saved sex for marriage, or parents, schools, and religious organizations that say abstinence is the only approach to safe sex.

I don't think it's wrong for people to say that saving sex for marriage made their relationship stronger, IF that is genuinely how they feel and they aren't saying it as a way of judging others.

I don't really buy the "purity" thing. All that made no difference to me. I think only really religious people care about this. I've never met a non-religious person who cared one way or the other.
