Re: ...via metafandom
It's interesting, isn't it? I think that virginity has had a value in some places and times because of its value to men in guaranteeing (they think) that their offspring are genetically theirs (not that it really works) and we see vestiges of that in society, in situations far removed from that. I think you are quite right that for a lot of people, "loss of virginity" is meaningful and significant, although often in a negative way...
