    I decided to break in my new home with a comedy

    to fill my home with laughter. The comedian was dark and she talked a lot about women and intimate relationships. I couldn't relate to much of what she was saying. it kind of makes me feel like I'm weird. I dress conservatively compared to today's standards. I wait until I'm in...

    What's The Big Deal?

    Only society can be blamed for the harsh judgment of people who are prudes. At a young age, our parents try to shelter us from these "things", but it doesn't matter. There is always someone you hang with who knows more than you, or has even had more experience. You can't escape...

    Men Say They Hate Prudes...

    I will need someone to be patient with me and teach me before we start "doing it". Most men say they hate prudes and don't have time for that. :(

    I Don't Like Sex.

    I didn't sleep around for years. Then I tried it. It was okay. Most of the guys I was with were incompetent. Then some guy called me a sl#t, and I was like, "I'm through with this $hit". I don't like sex enough to deal with that kind of blowback all the time. And I really don't...

    Why is being monogamous

    I have been called a prude

    and many times. I don't mind. I don't listen to music that's profane, vulgar, hateful. It is the same with books I read, TV and movies I watch, clothes I wear. Radio Disney edits songs that have curse words or language that might be too grown-up for younger listeners. And I...

    and had a libido of a teenage boy (but I'm a girl). I had a lot of fun I was carefree in my youth. I attracted whoever I wanted to attract. But I have changed and have become a prude. It's like I'm a completely different person....I see things with different eyes. Things that...

    Just Curious

    Why is is that a few of you feel like you can't say the word 'sex' or talk about anything to do with it? How do you feel when the topic is mentioned or asked about? I am just wondering because I used to be that way and wouldn't speak about it until I met some of my closest...

    I never understood why

    so many people see it as a bad thing. My friends make fun of me because I automatically try to change the subject when sexual stuff comes up. It makes me really uncomfortable and I honestly don't like how people openly talk about it. It should be saved for the bedroom. >=(

    I Don't Understand What's Wrong With Prudishness!

    I'm completely sick of hearing that people should lose their virginity in their teens. I have enough willpower to control my hormones, and I don't know why people see that as a bad thing. I dress modestly, going to the point of loving Lolita fashion (based off Victorian era...

    I don't mind talking

    or joking about sex but showing it makes me feel very uncomfortable. I'm fine with violence. Language to a degree, no continuous cussing
