Be Our Guest!

I started this blog because I was tired of how people reacted when they found out I was technically still a virgin. Obviously, I have great friends, and they don't care one way or the other. But I interact with a lot of people, some of whom never surpass being an acquaintance. And then when I add in guys I've dated or almost dated or just hooked up with. Basically, tons of people who equate virgins with freaks of nature.

I started this blog to inform the general populace, to educate the masses, that no, I'm not a freak of a nature. In fact, if I may be so bold, I'm pretty awesome, albeit in an off-beat, nerdy way.

I started this blog to reach out to other intentional virgins. To let them know other virgins are out there.

As I near my six-month "anniversary," I must confess, I am having a blast with this blog. I'm doing everything I set out to do and more.
  • writing about virginity
  • clearing up some virginity myths
  • privately corresponding with readers
  • putting my whole private life on display for examination
  • discovering other blogs about virginity, sex, relationships, religion, online dating, au pairing/nannying, sorority life, writing/publishing, Paris, feminism, following your dreams...
  • finding out I'm not alone in my beliefs
  • helping my readers find out they're not alone either!
But now it's time to hear from y'all! Both the boyfriend and some of my friends have volunteered to write (anonymous) guest posts, with a range of topics: online dating, sex/virginity, male virginity, loss of virginity, social expectations, etc. I'm going to send out an email soon, requesting guest submissions, but I want reader input! What questions do you have? What stories do you want to hear? Are there any myths you want busted?

I would also love some guest posts from my readers, not just my friend group. If you are interested in writing a guest post for me, let me know! I'm still writing out my guidelines, which will partly be based on feedback. The overall theme of my blog is making decisions for yourself and respecting the choices of others. Anything that falls within that is welcome--not just posts on virginity!

Please leave a comment or shoot me an email with your thoughts on guest posts, or if you're interested in writing one for me.

Bisous, B.V.

  1. I love blatant truths expressed in just the way you did in your 'about me'. Seriously, it reminds me of mine and is reminiscent of why I started my blog. I'm super psyched about exploring your blog! And THANK YOU for following and linking up. I seriously am thrilled to have found your blog! Do you have a button? Wanna trade?

    1. Ahhh thank you! I'm enjoying looking at yours as well. You're such a free spirit, which I LOVE.

  2. Nevermind, I'm a blind idiot apparently. I grabbed your button. Also, I haven't guest posted yet (I'm in my 4th month of blogging) but I'm down to join your group. Also, I'm about to birth a baby and am looking desperately for guest bloggers myself for the week I'm planning on taking off. I would be delighted if you would share your wit!

    1. Yes & yes! I would love to have you guest post AND would love to guest post on your blog. Super-sweet. When I (finally) get around to sending out my email for guest posts, I'll add you to my list. :)

  3. Just found this blog and I absolutely adore it! It seriously speaks to so much about my life. I live with several 20 something virgins so I get where you're coming from. I'd also totally love to guest post! You can check out my blog to see if you like my writing.

    Love, Hayley classyinkc@yahoo.com
