I'm 21 and a virgin. Sex has caused me a lot of strife and anxiety in my life. I feel really insecure when people talk about it around me. Nobody around me really knows I'm a virgin and I think it's because I put up guards to hide my insecurity. On top of it all I'm confused about my sexuality. I would accept myself if I was gay but it feels like it's 50/50 at this point. I thought about proclaiming to my friends, family and strangers, if asked, that I am virgin. I figure this would take away a lot of the pressure and anxiety I have with it as well as have people who are into that kind of thing (having sex with a virgin) would be more likely to hit on me. Not to mention my friends would try to get me laid ASAP and make fun of me til I do. I'm kind of scared to tell people because I feel vulnerable when I do - I feel vulnerable now making a thread on an anonymous forum. I know that this will only get harder the older I get so I really just want to get it over with. I'm open to any suggestions.
