How do I know if I’m a virgin?

Your partner may be someone of the same gender or someone of a different gender. There is nothing wrong with being a virgin or not being a virgin, and it’s up to you to decide what “losing your virginity” means to you. What’s more important than knowing whether or not you are a “virgin” is making sure you feel safe with your partner and you don’t ever feel pressured into having sex. Becoming sexually active is not only a big decision, it should always be YOUR choice and no one else’s.
