I feel like the last virgin in the world. It seems like everybody is having sex except for me. I have
only ever been to first base - how embarrassing!
My friends are always talking about their latest adventures. I just sit there and try to be invisible.
I guess I've never been 'out there' with guys. I'm no good at flirting and I don't like showing heaps
of skin. So they just don't seem to notice me.
Looking at myself in the mirror is painful. I avoid places like the beach where I would have to
show my body.
I was at a party on Saturday night and decided that I needed to loosen up a bit. I had a couple of shooters with my friends.
Then I bumped into this guy from the year above who I've had a crush on for a while. Before I know it I'm alone in a bedroom with him. I'm not even sure how I got there.
We started kissing and things were getting hot. He said he wanted to go for it. I was feeling good and was curious about what doing 'it' felt like. I also didn't want to be the last of my friends to lose their V-plates.
But as things progressed, what we were doing didn't feel quite right. I can't explain it - I just didn't feel comfortable. So I started pulling away. He tried to pull me back a couple of times. I got sick of it so I left.
I was talking to my mum later and she said how important it is to be in control of your body. I want my first time to be special and with someone I care about.
My friends say that I missed out on a great opportunity, but I feel good about what I did.
