Technical Virgins: Do Oral And Anal Count As "Real" Sex?

Illustration for article titled Technical Virgins: Do Oral And Anal Count As Real Sex?

You probably gave a blow job or got eaten out before you ever had vaginal intercourse (assuming you're straight, natch). So if you did everything except letting the boy put his Linus in your Snoopy, did you consider yourself a virgin? A study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health found that 70% of kids age 12 - 16 believe that oral sex doesn't count, and 16% believe that anal doesn't either. It's interesting because, like, what really is sex? 'Cause the whole "penis in the vagina" thing seems, I don't know, too biblical or something. Besides, if that's the real definition, then that means that pretty much every gay person—unless they had a "bisexual" transition period—is still a virgin.

I lost my virginity at 17, and had oral sex in the months leading up to that, and I definitely considered myself a virgin until that Saturday morning my boyfriend half fit his ween into me for the two and a half minute commercial break during a Real World marathon. Lemme tell you, the licking was so much better than the sticking. But it's like that for most girls, right? So if our first go at vaginal intercourse is kinda whatevs, then why do we consider it the event?
