It is no doubt that remaining a virgin is a personal choice, and individuals have the right to decide when and with whom they engage in sèxual activity.
However, in the process of abstaining from sexual activities, there are certain physical and emotional aspects to consider when someone remains a virgin for an extended period.
Below, we will explore some side effects of being a virgin for too long from reliable and credible sources.
A Look At Some Side Effect Of Being A Virgin For A Long Time
Physical Tension and Discomfort
According to Healthline, the absence of sèxual activity can lead to increased muscle tension in the pelvic area. This tension may manifest as pelvic pain or discomfort, which can affect overall well-being and sèxual enjoyment when one decides to engage in sèxual activity later in life (The Journal of Sèxual Medicine).
Anxiety and Performance Pressure
Prolonged virginity may contribute to increased anxiety and performance pressure when individuals contemplate their first sèxual experience. Fear of the unknown, lack of Sèxual confidence, and concerns about meeting societal expectations can lead to anxiety, making it more challenging to establish a healthy and fulfilling sèxual relationship (Psychology Today).
Lack of Sèxual Knowledge and Skills
Being a virgin for an extended period may result in limited sèxual knowledge and skills. Without firsthand experience, individuals may have difficulty understanding their own desires and preferences, as well as effectively communicating them to a partner. This lack of knowledge can hinder sèxual exploration and satisfaction in future relationships (American Sèxual Health Association).
Emotional and Psychological Impact
Remaining a virgin for a prolonged period can also have emotional and psychological effects. Feelings of isolation, self-doubt, and societal pressure may arise, leading to decreased self-esteem and confidence.
Addressing these emotions and seeking support from trusted individuals or professionals can be beneficial for emotional well-being (PsychCentral).
While being a virgin for an extended period is a personal choice, it is essential to consider potential side effects that may arise. Physical tension, anxiety, limited sèxual knowledge, and emotional impacts are some factors to be aware of.
It is crucial to prioritize open communication, self-exploration, and seeking support to ensure a healthy and fulfilling sèxual journey when the time is right.
You become slower
According to a study by the University of Maryland, when you have less sex or no sex at all, you become slower with your thoughts. Your neuron functioning is affected. Your ideas are not so bright.
Pent up frustration
Very rarely do we have cases of someone being A-sexual, as everyone has urged. You may control yourself but your lower abdomen will definitely hurt. When people have an orgasm, they let go of a lot of frustration, and sex releases that.
When you have sex, the right way, your confidence increases but when you do not, you also lose the ability to do it ever again as your organ basically loses its mojo. You will never experience the liberation, the confidence people feel after a good session of sex.
Sex is supposed to be good for your muscles which help in holding your pee. If you do not do it, your pelvic floor muscles have a huge possibility of weakening and you may even face untimely dripping.
