Superb Opinion

  • Most men don't care about a woman's virginity either way - meaning, most men aren't obsessed with virgins, and most men aren't obsessed over the fact that a woman has had sex before. Neither situation changes her sex appeal.

    BUT... being a virgin at 26 is a likely red flag that she's got some other situation that's a problem. Some of those would be:

    • Super shyness
    • Massive insecurity (about men, about her body, about relationships, etc.)
    • Extreme religious beliefs
    • Asexuality
    • Childhood trauma
    • Extreme political beliefs
    • A hyper focus on her education/career



    Most men are going to want to know WHY she's still a virgin at 26, because the "why" could have a major impact on a relationship (if it's just casual sex, then he won't care, because he isn't worried about anything long-term).

    It's like buying a used car, and wanting to know before you buy if the engine has major damage or if the transmission is worn out, because repairs for those items might cost more than the car is worth - you are probably going to ask a LOT of questions before you buy, and you are smart to do so. That doesn't mean you won't buy the car - you just want to be fully informed before you make that decisions.

Most Helpful Guy

  • Nah. But to not just be nice on gag but also add in a touch of reality: It won't lower her appeal but she, just like a guy in that situation, should be ready to answer questions as to why. They are not to be rude but out of curiosity. A simple "I had my mind elsewhere" will suffice really.

  • I agree with the others. Virginity doesn’t change anything

  • It just means that she is/was waiting for the right guy at the right time in her life.

  • Meh, I'd pass.

  • No...

  • No, it doesn't.


    Some might believe that because of your lack of experience, but they are probs the minority.

  • Nope.

  • Not to me.

  • Maybe if she’s a prude

  • No. Being virgin isn't what reduces the sex appeal. A lot of girls become fat or generally let themself go. That's what makes them less attractive.

  • In today's day and age if there's a woman who's 26 and still a virgin I'm looking at it as a red flag something's wrong it may be because you know she's actually a good woman and didn't want to just give it to anybody but you know what the way Society is that's not how normal people are I'm not saying that that's wrong but it's just too strange
