Only a Bestie today, because it's long, in response to Virginity Is Less A Piece Of Skin, More A State Of Being: "I remember the day I lost my virginity. I will always remember that balance beam, the promises it made me, the sweet things it did for me, how it used to tell me how beautiful I was and how much it would mean for it to be the one to break my hymen. Finally, after years of flirting, one day when I was in early middle school, I took the plunge and did a trick on the beam that resulted in my landing legs akimbo on the beam. Pain and bleeding soon followed the impact. It was not all the balance beam said it would be and we never spoke again." We say: you shoulda known better. It's not called GymNICEtics.
