New study into sex and virginity

A new study conducted at the University of Mississippi shows that the quality of your experience losing your virginity might affect your sex life in later years. Of the 331 people interviewed by researchers, those who had a physically and emotionally satisfying first time were more likely to report being fulfilled with their current sex life.

“While this study doesn’t prove that a better first time makes for a better sex life in general, a person’s experience of losing their virginity may set the pattern for years to come,” said Matthew Shaffer, doctoral psychology student who conducted the study with assistant professor C. Veronica Smith.
