    I have an interesting question for all the 'men objectifying women' people here.

    Is it love, respect or objectifying if two lesbians keep their virginity until they find their life partner?

    And I'll mix it up even more; what is it when two men wait to give the gift of the first time to their life partner?

    I wouldn't say it was a "Gift" personally.

    everyone remembers how they lost their virginity, I can understand in wanting to make it "special" so to speak.

    But a gift? No.

    In some cultures a commitment? Yes.

    But still I don't see it as a gift.

    In some languages (e.g., German, French) there are different words for men and women.
    Aaah that's ok then! 'Greeness' ROFL!! Green vaginas! Eeewwwww!!!

    Agreed, My mother's motto was Try before you Buy lol and I agree with it. While I do hope my kids wait for someone that respects them, I hope they don't wait until marriage. A relationship needs more than love to sustain it for decades and to put it bluntly, if you aren't sexually compatible it can make the marriage hard.

    The notion of virginity being a gift is weird to me, like a woman is some kind of chattle. It reminds me of those creepy Purity Balls in the US *shudders*

    OT, but you know what? I just realised I actually can't remember. I know the date (cause it was an Australia Day), and I know where and who with (my first serious boyfriend at his place), but I can't remember anything more than that. And I wasn't even intoxicated! That's how memorable the experience was..

    It's objectifying when girls/women are sought after because of their virginity...just so that the man can take it then it can be another knotch on his belt. It's something that can be sought after for men to 'take' from girls.

    If their parents claim ownership of this 'gift' before it is 'given' then yes, all of the scenarios above are creepy.

    I don't think male virginity is fetishised as much as female virginity.

    I don't think it's creepy/weird/whatever at ALL to wait, calling it a gift is a bit strange to me but whatever floats your boat.
