Face of the Day

Meet Miriam Babooram, a 33 year old virgin….plus 5 other virgins and read why they are:

The reaction I get when I tell men I’m a virgin — which I tend to do if we get past the first or second date — ranges from fascination to confusion.

I won’t go further than kissing. A couple of times I’ve had a bit too much to drink and ended up naked in bed with a date. It’s not that I’m immune to physical pleasure, but intercourse is a line I won’t cross until I meet the man I want to commit to for life.

Now I’m in my 30s, I worry I’ll never find the right man. Most are married with children by now, and dates find my virginity more off-putting than alluring.

Some of my friends say I should just have sex — even my mum thinks I should. She doesn’t think there’s any harm in sex as long as I’m loved and respected by a man.

My father died five years ago. He’d probably wish I was married, but I think he’d be proud I’m still waiting. When I find the right man, we’ll have the rest of our lives to enjoy each other’s bodies. I’ve seen the hurt casual sex can cause.

    Some interesting comments on the link ;) :D

    Each to their own I guess…

  • Brendon

    Good on her, wish I had waited

  • Good for her. 

    Promiscuity is a sign of low self esteem. 

    • James Gray

      Yes, but excessive caution and overestimating risks isn’t healthy either.

      It sounds like this woman simply set herself a certain set of aims when it came to finding a mate, then was too busy to meet them. If she’s happy, then good on her. If she’s not happy, then that’s her loss.

  • Brian Smaller

    I think she is hot.

  • ???

    Good, wish we had more women like this that had standards, instead of the dole bludging 15 year olds popping out sproggs like a tennis ball machine. 

  • Tevisiteur

    They’re all pretty ugly and/or fat.  Wouldn’t stick one near them.

    • Brian Smaller

       And how is your modelling career going?

    • James Gray

      Plenty of cushion for the pushin’ there

  • mallit

  • Scanner

    Hope she finds someone, I would hate to see “Returned Un-opened”  on her coffin lid.

    • kisekiman

      Confucious say girl who die virgin get laid in coffin.

    • kisekiman

      Dont forget necrophilia – the uncontrollable urge to crack open a cold one.

  • Greg M

    • Travdog

      tap it with a cold spoon Greg, it’ll go back down ;)

  • Seething

    Yep .. I have liftoff .. Any wood in your life?

    I’ve also seen the damage caused when people wait to have sex when they are married (ie they are virgins), they get married then the sexual incompatability rips them apart.

    I’m a firm believer in try before you buy, but of course that comes with responsibility.
