I am in my, er, 105th(?) reread of Welcome to Temptation; you all know how much I love this book and that HOT dock scene. *sigh* Anyway, earlier this week, while listening to the audio version, I started thinking about the question Amy posses to Clea and Sophie in the scene they’re having some “girl” time in the beginning of the book:
“Does anybody ever have a good losing-my-virginity story?”
DOES anybody indeed? Every tale I’ve heard on this topic is an embarrassing horror story that might seem funny to others, but that the main character will never live it down as long as she lives!!!
“It was two years into my relationship with Justin and I thought he was the one. But I was wrong! I didn’t think he was going to go on Barbara Walters and sell me out!”
Apparently I have something in common with Britney. And no, it’s not the fabulous pre-baby body! *sob* It’s that we’re both in the same losing-your-virginity club, one that goes by the very popular name: “if it was so embarrassing you still have nightmares about it, you belong here!” I was wondering (and yes, I am a very nosy bitch! LOL) if there are any other members around...
Now, I will post my story in the comments section as anonymous (mine is very embarrassing!!!) and suggest that anyone else that’s shy about with the topic do the same. I’m specifically curious about the ladies that waited until marriage: are your stories better? Because that would seem to me one of the perks of saying your vows first and doing the dirty later LOL.
To get everyone started, here are the WTT*** girls’ stories. How do yours compare?
“I was in love.” Clea made it sound like, I had the plague. “And he acted like he was. And he was so good-looking—”
“Frank was good-looking?” Sophie said.
“It was twenty-four years ago,” Amy said. “Shut up and let her talk.”
“—and we were doing Taming of the Shrew for the senior play,” Clea was saying. “And you know how it is when you rehearse and rehearse and pretend you’re in love. Except I really was. He was just everything back then.”
“He’d been dating Georgia Funk forever,” Clea said. “But on Saturday night, after the cast party, Frank took me out to the Tavern for a Coke, which, let me tell you, was big stuff. And he parked in the back which is pretty much Temptation’s lovers’ lane, and he made his move, and that’s when I lost my virginity.” Clea drained her second glass.
“He promised me he was through with Georgia,” Clea said. “But when I got to school on Monday, she was wearing this tiny chip of an engagement ring.”
“He said she was pregnant,” Clea said, “and they got married fast enough. And then eleven months later, sure enough, she had a baby.”
“I lost mine to Darrin Sunderland after the homecoming game my junior year, and it was lousy.” She sipped her cider and brightened. “Fortunately, sex got better.”
“Darrin was too drunk to be grateful,” Amy said. “Which taught me my first lesson about sex: They have to be sober. It’s one of the ‘Classic Blunders,’ right up there with ‘never get involved in a land war in Asia.’”
“I lost it to Chad Berwick in Iowa, one month before school was out, my junior year,” Sophie said, trying to keep her voice even so she wouldn’t spit on Clea. “I thought I’d con him into taking me to prom because I wanted to be ‘in’ just once, and nobody was more in than Chad. Except it was awful, and when I got to school on Monday, everybody knew. And when I went to the cafeteria at lunchtime, his best friend came up and stuck his finger in the pie on my tray and scooped out this big, gloppy cherry and said, ‘Heard you lost this, Sophie.’ And then everybody laughed.”
Now, your turn. *g*
**I googled “losing your virginity euphemisms” and got these results. That one up there cracked me up! LOL
