I don't know. I think it's wrong to lie about sex-related issues when you're in bed, i.e. orgasms, stds, birth control. But I was a virgin until I was 23, and I damned lied to everyone except my closest friends about that. I just hated dealing with the reactions of pity or comments of "what, are you religious or something," when I didn't feel like explaining that no, I am not religious, I am simply fucked up in the head. No one ever understood, and the people to whom I did admit my inexperience just made me feel so self-conscious and pathetic that I decided that I will never admit my inexperience (even now), unless it's to a best friend or I'm in a relationship (one night stands don't count and have never suspected, thank the gods).
