Introducing the almost 40-year-old virgin

I'm less than two years shy of 40 years old and I'm still a virgin.

This is worse than admitting that you're an alcoholic. Alcoholism is a semi-cool psychological illness. Lots of rich and famous people are alcoholics. How many rich and famous people are/were still virgins at nearly the age of 40? Besides the Pope, probably none.

I'm sure I'm not the only person my age afflicted with this problem. But the thing about us virgins is that we're very private and shy people, and extremely embarrassed about our condition. One of our greatest fears is that people might discover our affliction. That's why you won't see an Oprah Winfrey show devoted to virgins. As if she even cares about this unique male problem anyway.

Through the anonymity of the internet (although I am aware that the people at Google/Blogger can easily figure out my real identity if they track IP addresses), I am creating this blog to inform the world about what it's like to be as old as I am and still a virgin. But the short answer for now is that it really sucks.

  1. Firstly, I think one may be proud that one is a virgin. After all, you may have a few good reason why you have remained such. However, what is very important though is why you are a virgin?
