I lost my virginity to a friend while we were 

drunk at a party. We decided to go fuck in 

his car. After the act I told him I needed to 

put my clothes on and pee. He told me he 

didn't want me to leave yet and handed me 

a Gatorade bottle to pee in. I was drunk and 

thought it was a good idea. I pissed all over 

the floor of the backseat of his car.

.... it made me think about my virginity story it was awkward! 

It was in the back of a ford explorer on a main street on a 

saturday night. Cars and cops kept driving by so we'd be 

having sex and out of nowhere hed plop on top of me so the 

cars couldnt see him...my head kept hitting the back of the 

passenger seat...

The first time for me was in he back of a Pontiac 2000 LE. 

It wasnt too horrible, but definately wasnt comfortable.

text reads:
I finally got a girl in my dorm room, 
got her naked, in bed, 
ready and willing, 
and I couldn't find the hole. 

I thought it would be straight down. 
She didn't help either. 
We humped all night.

No second date.

EXHIBITIONIST


My virginity had become a burden and I just wanted 

to get rid of it. I was on vacation with friends at a 

summer house.  A European backpacker came by.  

Perfect!  

Complete anonymity. No friends of friends telling his 

friends, telling my friends...  No gossip.  

 

We were on my living room murphy bed when my 

friends came back early and walked right in on us.  

They saw everything. He grabbed his clothes and 

shoes and ran out. I was completely embarrassed 

and humiliated. That feeling is the one I remember. 



DRAWING BLOOD


[–]WillCasey 831 points 2 months ago 

After graduating high school, all my friends decided to have a beach 

week. One night after some drinks, this girl very forwardly asks if I 

want to have sex. Little virgin me was scared as hell, but not about 

to pass this up. We go into a dark room, start kissing, and get down 

to business quickly. I have no idea what's going on so I'm on bottom. 

It's about 95 degrees in the room and she's going at it pretty hard on 

top so my sweaty head starts hitting the backboard. So I'm already 

not having the best time, but to top it off this girl is getting way into 

it and starts scratching my chest violently. And this was no sexy 

scratch, she was literally drawing blood. I guess my penis felt I was 

in danger and I could faintly hear it whisper, "I'm getting you out of 

here, buddy," as it slowly went limp inside of this girl. After a minute 

she realized what had happend. I got out of there as fast as possible 

to go nurse my bleeding chest. My friends refuse to let this story die 

and I can't even blame them.

Finally, on Fourth of July 

we did it. 

.

It really hurt.

Tears were sliding

down the side of my face.

He didn't notice. 

.

Then outside the 

window a bottle 

rocket went off 

and we laughed.
