Is Virginity still considered important and not something to be thrown away by sleeping with some badboy asshole who just used her as a pump and dump when she was 16?
In the U.S., the "National Center for Health Statistics" reports are usually accepted as reliable. Their Report Number 26, of Data Series 23, can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/series/sr_23/sr23_026.pdf . Table 13, on page 44, shows that about half of all guys have lost their virginity by the time they are a little over 17 years old. But at age 22, about 15% of all men (and, almost 20% of never-married men!) are still virgins. Table 22 (page 53) indicates that a lot of guys who are married by age 24, waited until a month (or less) of being married before they had sex.
For women, the comparable information is found in Report Number 25 of Data Series 23. Table 32, on page 71, shows that about half of all girls have also lost their virginity by the time they are a little over 17 years old. About 10% of all 22 year old girls (and about 12% of never-married 22 year old girls) are still virgins. So 22 year old virgin girls are less common than 22 year old virgin guys, but for either sex virgins are a minority, but a very significant minority, at age 22. Table 41 (page 80) indicates that almost 20% of girls who are married by age 24, waited until a month (or less) of being married before they had sex.
Tina Fey said she didn't get laid until she was 27 I think. It happens... I some get passed over, it really just depends what competition your up against. Especially in a culture that values its women not be loose but very selective. But also men are guilty of giving up too soon. After 3 dates most men expect a pay off, sometimes it takes a bit longer to get a comfort level high enough for her to open up.
