But now sexual purity is popping up all over the place, with musicians, movie actors and other celebrities declaring they're saving themselves for true love.
First things first: there is no right or wrong age to lose your virginity. The only factors that matter when it comes to having sex for the first time is that both YOU and your partner are ready, and you're using protection. And while what you see on TV and in the movies might tell you otherwise, everyone's first time is SO different.
