Did your boyfriend/husband wait for marriage before sex? What is your experience with convincing men to wait? Is it worth it? Does it work? Do the good men also walk away? Is it even a good idea in the first place, if seemingly no one seems to do that anymore?

I am from Germany and this whole concept is basically completely foreign to young people here.

We fucked before we started dating and we've lived together for eight years now. I don't think you need to get married to show loyalty or love, we'll be buying a house next year and will probably tie the knot for financial security some time before that

I'm German, I made my guy wait for a little while to hit as I was a virgin at the time, we've been together for five years. I don't see the point in waiting for marriage, as it is not a net good for women and perpetuates some retarded purity beliefs, but I don't want to immidiately sleep with a man either.

If you are going to bother to draw a line at all, it's marriage, as it's the only thing in a relationship that is codified outside of the couple themselves. If you don't believe that sex should only happen after marriage, then there is no standard that can be consistently applied.

I think it is not worth it to expect a guy to be virgin. Maybe if you're really young, like underage or 19 at most, but if you're +20, in my opinion, it is not worth it at all. Around that age, most virgin guys will be weird and in most cases they won't be virgin because they want to wait, but because they couldn't have sex.

Oh fuck, I'm waking up and I read it as you were talking about virgin guys lol.
In that case, it is worth it to wait. If the guy really has romantic interest in you, he will wait until you are comfortable to have sex with him. How much you want to wait depends on you and how much it takes you to trust on him

Why does a standard need to be applied by an outside force? You can just tell a guy that you won't have sex until X months of exclusivity and he can take it or leave it.

This into the conversation, she is obviously talking about the general standard as opposed to the case-by-case one. In such an instance, anything reliant on your methods is going to be applied differently across different groups of people, which leads to differing standards, which leads to an erosion to path of least resistance as time goes by, i.e. no standard.

My boyfriend did not wait but he has told me and other people that he regrets not waiting for me, and that he wishes I would have been his only one, like he is for me.
He waited for about 5 months (we did do other stuff in the meantime) but definitely would not have waited for marriage however. That is just silly. It's also true that the relationship got better after we started doing it. I don't see how you can grow a relationship without going through the different stages of kissing, touching, and eventually sex.

>>62797
This isn't about drawing a line based on a contract. It's about truly being comfortable and liking the person you are with. That can take different amount of times.
Waiting for marriage is also a recipe for disaster. Sex is very important and if you don't like it with your partner it will end your marriage.
One of my bf's friends was stuck in a sexless relationship of ~5 years since highschool. He was absolutely miserable. Imagine if he had waited for marriage to see this girl had no interest in sex. Now he has a new gf that has a sex drive as high as his and in less than a year of dating he is dying to marry her.

It's about the concept of having to give up sex, before getting a relationship. It's nice that it worked out for you, but it doersn't mean that every men is going to be like this. Some relationships don't work out for all kinds of reasons, but the woman is almost always expected to give up sex every time just to try the relationship out.

>>62798

Not in this country and not in this culture. I think even among the "good men" it's a minority.

>>62799
I don't require for the guy to be a virgin. I am willing to overlook some things in his past. It's really more about our potential relationship and if he is willing to do that.

Also the point is to just not have any old relationship with a guy, who is willing to wait. It's obviously not the only condition that I have. I bet there's lots of weird guys out there, who have no other option and would be willing to wait, but that's not the point of this.

Cool then there is no general standard, and everyone gets to pick what it is. If you want absolute free standards than don't complain about what the general standard encourages or causes because you obviously take issue with the general standard existing.

>Waiting for marriage is also a recipe for disaster. Sex is very important and if you don't like it with your partner it will end your marriage.

Do people not have the ability to be honest with each other about their sexual expectations without actually engaging in sex?

Did he attempt to ask his gf of 5 years at any point in those 5 years how she felt about sex?

>>62815
It's not bad, at no point did I say it was bad, what my post is pointing out is that you can't have your cake and eat it too. If you want a standard for a culture for when sex can occur, that standard is marriage. If you are concerned with things such as
>I don't see the point in waiting for marriage, as it is not a net good for women and perpetuates some retarded purity beliefs
then you aren't caring about the individual, you're caring about the general idea of the individual in the culture. If instead the standard is "have sex when you are comfortable" than there is no standard and having sex on the first date is just as valid as any other point in time, with no rebuttal being possible.

If you want there to be a general standard, the general standard is marriage, if you instead want to embrace personal choice where the standard is, cool, great, fantastic, but that means it's going to be all over the place with some pickmes being willing to settle for first dates and others having higher standards, setting up a meta-competition of standards as moids flow to the path of least resistance.

>Do people not have the ability to be honest with each other about their sexual expectations without actually engaging in sex?
Sure, but that's not enough in my opinion. I hate all these euphemisms of 'test driving a car' or whatever but it is sort of like that; how am I going to know if there is actual chemistry, he knows how to get me off, I actually feel comfortable, our genitals fit into another in a satisfying manner etc. Sex is complex, and it is very important to me. Being several years deep into a relationship with a man I loved and married only to realise the 'vibe' is off would be depressing. Sure, there are ways to work on that but there are limits to what can be done. Also, there is the usual issues of the guy being somewhat sexually satisfied regardless (bc he always gets to cum), so he has no stake/interest in changing/making sex better for you unless he really cares. The way men handle sex and their partner's pleasure is a great way to vet and I am not foreclosing that opportunity for myself.

I'm framing it in such a way as there is a downside, which there is. There's also a downside to having sex being regulated to after marriage only. There are upsides to both ways of doing it as well. All we can do is attempt to mitigate those downsides. OP and plenty of other girls feel pressure to have sex early in because there are, without a doubt, plenty of women who are in fact comfortable with that, which causes a meta-competition of standards. This is inevitable downside of it being everyone's choice. The upsides are as you described, not worrying about having unfulfilling sex afterwards.

>>62825
Ah! You noticed that, thank you. Assume that the standard is "sex occurs after marriage" then the question becomes "when is it appropriate to get married" which is a wonderful question to ask because there are blatant, external, consistently enforced standards for what marriage is and how it should be dealt with. Even the most private two person wedding ceremony has to be verified with the government and be on public record, with accompanying witnesses. With those outside the marriage acting as a social anchoring force to the very real powerful emotions at play with the two individuals. Marriage is by it's legal definition different from just sex as it involves those not in the relationship by necessity, and thus the standards, while still theoretically loose, are far more strictly applied on a consistent basis. A moid pressuring a girl into having sex before marriage (in this context) is by definition an undesirable moid and can be dismissed immediately as he's obviously socially incompetent if not malevolent moid, and women get a real anchoring external reason to say "No, not yet" with no sense of guilt or shame as they are properly meeting standards. This isn't the case in the current context, where a moid pressuring a women for sex is signs of poor taste, but, obviously, everyone has different standards for sex, and the moid has an invested interest in it as much as we do, and will push for what he wants because with absolutely no standards that's what he is gamified into doing with impetus within legal reason of course.

Perhaps a far better question is, if sex is important, why isn't it worth waiting until marriage to have, and if sex isn't important, then why is marriage important, since the only reason marriage exists as a cultural institution is to regulate sexual activity. It's the only reason it exists.

Because that is not the only way to acknowledge it's value. Why does waiting for something make it more valuable? Surely you can't deny that this idea that human self-restraint venerates something is sort of puritanical
> if sex isn't important, then why is marriage important, since the only reason marriage exists as a cultural institution is to regulate sexual activity
You mean it is the only reason to get married, or the only reason cultures invented marriage? Because neither is true.

Well, not precisely. It's a very unique feeling that has a lot to do with your thoughts and feelings. You can't really make decisions about it by comparison. Specially when you are young, most people don't know what to expect.
They had all sorts of discussions and talks, eventually fights as it never worked out. Until one day she admitted she did not enjoy sex with him at all, and only did it to please him. I'm pretty sure it was a compatibility issue and she was not very sexually attracted to him. It's not the she was the sole obstacle. These are the sorts of unexpected problems people can run into, which is why it's important to test out your sexual life together.

I'm sorry are you asserting that marriage does not exist as an institution to regulate procreation? I suppose there's also some ambiguity because modern westerners have managed to divorce (pun definitely intended) sex from procreation, when I really don't believe there is one. Let me restate as
>marriage as an institution exists to regulate procreation
Would you feel this is an accurate statement? I want this clarified because people tend to see marriage as something important but I've never understood under the modern context why it would be.

>Why does waiting for something make it more valuable?

This immediately implies there should be a long wait time for marriage, which I never posited. Especially in the current societal context with pre-nups and lax divorce laws making it quite easy to break off the engagement. This logic also applies to the lax standards stance, why wait to have sex if it's important to test? You should test it immediately! After all, waiting is puritanical.

>>62832
>Yeah? Do you need someone to hold your hand through every important decision in life? Yes I do not have an issue with any standards existing, I'm not sure what your point is.
Good, just don't complain about the downsides of girls getting pressured by the meta-competition like >>62796 does. You evidently don't care, others do. Whether or not they are right to do so is irrelevant, it exists nonetheless. Obviously some people benefit more from than others and you appear to be doing so.

You can't do it by comparison because it's very unique. Not only mentally, but also physically as in the sensation of intercourse. It's so sensitive that even inadequate sizes can make it way too painful and turn sex into something miserable for both sides.
Even the closest thing with two people, mutual masturbating, is still very different. The closest you could get solo would be chosing a random dick size and strapping it to machine that thrusts at random speeds and depths.
And then the emotional part is simply incomparable to anything. You could hate it or love it, change your opinion depending on your daily mood, enjoy it without being emotional, etc.

>Why does it mean more?

Because you are entering a legal contract and making big decisions about your future together. Being ready for sex just means wanting to have sex, being ready for marriage means being ready for the long term commitment between two people and all the advantages and disadvantages that come from sharing your life together.

For me, personally, contemporarily, this is not true. As in, there are plenty of other reasons people get married nowadays, and it wouldn't be the reason I wish to get married. However, that is probably not what you meant. You meant as in, the institution was created to do this. In that case, I would say yes partially, but not exclusively. But even if I personally don't agree I can still follow. I know you're trying to lead us to some objective sort of truth here, which I am not sure will even be possible for us, but at this point I would rather follow in the steps behind you and see where you walk than take your hand, respectfully.

This isn't the socratic method, I am not trying to trip you, I need to know if you're the type that thinks marriage is about the two people getting married and not what it is actually about. If you make the rookie mistake of thinking it's about the two people, then the rest of my argument falls flat.

Fine, but the first time you try a counter-argument that relies on this premise not being true I'm assuming you're not acting in good faith and will stop.

My actual position is that sex is important, and casual sex is a misnomer, it doesn't exist. Unless you appeal to some divine entity, as a biological being your purpose in having these urges is for the purpose of procreation by order of your genes. You should not be having sex with someone you are not prepared to have a child with, you are blatantly not prepared to have a child if you are not married, as, and all statistical data shows this, children raised in a household with their two own biological metrics outperform all others, across all marks. It's not even close. If you are pro-human, and want humans to do well, you are pro-child, as children become adult humans, and if you are pro-child, you are pro-marriage. I don't care if you in particular don't want children, because unless you want children to actively suffer you are still pro-marriage.

But let's say modern humans have managed to fully divorce sex from procreation. We haven't, because no robot, as far as I am aware, is capable of producing a human inside it in isolation yet. We have only vaguely and very minimally mastered the prevention of the creation of life, allowing for sex to exist in absence of procreation, but not procreation from sex, but we'll allow it just the same. Sex is far too powerful, and far too important to be given out freely. Yes it feels good, who the fuck doesn't want to feel good? But obviously feeling good isn't always a good thing, there are very obvious times when you shouldn't be. Drug addiction for a very easy extreme version of feeling good being absolute opposite from ideal. I have no obvious reasons to suppose that the freeing up of sexual standards is going to be a positive thing for humans in the long run. It's only been normalized for the last 50 years, not even the adults who were adults at that time have completely died yet, let alone the children that grew up under that paradigm. There simply isn't enough information to suppose this is a good move in the long run. I'm fine with finding out, but I am going to posit that there are very good reasons for how humans used to treat marriage.

Of course, this is the ideal position, the real world, with all it's faults and cracks, can't live up to it. Dumb smelly moids want to have sex, stupid pickmes are too easily persuaded to make mistakes, and sex is just too interesting to give up. Even when marriage was treated as important, and sex sacred, did people have pre-marital affairs and extra-marital affairs. Obviously the standard existing didn't stop them now did it? They made their own standards, they acted on their own standards, and faced the consequences of those standards. We can argue the fine details all day, in the end, my stance is that sex is too important to waste on just anybody, and the only person it is worth treasuring with is someone you trust to bond yourself to death with, and if you trust someone to death why aren't you marrying them?

There, that's my position, do with it as you will.

no point in waiting since by the time you're married it's late to find out your partner is into heavy BDSM while you're a vanilla-type. especially if you live in a more conservative country where divorce is worse than staying in a marriage that leaves you battered and bruised over the sexual gratification of your spouse.

but if you truly want to wait, your first time doesn't lead to a kid-locked marriage, and you've discussed what you might be into beforehand, sure, why the fuck not wait? it's your virginity and your body.

>Killing people would cause more net suffering than whatever strange benefit you seem to construct it to have in your strawman.
You can prevent people from being born (and thus suffering) by killing all who are currently alive and capable of giving birth. By definition, if it is morally imperative to prevent the suffering of allowing things to be born, it is morally imperative to actively prevent others from being born.

Anything else is just Anti-natalists empty posturing.

>I also don't believe it my role to sanction others right to cause suffering, e.g. decide whether they are allowed to have kids.

This is what I mean, the espousing of what a moral action should be, without the werewithal to actually perform the action. Hypocrite isn't the right word, this would imply you fully accepted the logic of your arguments and then chose not to act. No, instead, it's intetional prevention of reaching the end conclusion so you never have to be a hypocrite, nor actuate the morality of the situation.

>Maybe that makes me a hypocrite in your eyes.

To the best of my ability I act out my morality, and attempt to articulate the morality I am acting out. Since the first always occurs before the later.

I can't wait more than one night because I'm too horny.
Although I wish I would have a bf who forced me to wait for sex, the anticipation and teasing would make it even better.

Forgot to add : waiting for mariage is only useful when you don't have access to birth control, which has been the case for thousand years. Being a single mom without ressources suck.
In antique times, marriage was basically a contract to raise children in sane, stable way. If birth control would have been easily available in ancient egypt or rome, you can be sure that in few generations, sex before mariage would have become widely accepted.
But then the semitic death cults came into play… and banned all sex before mariage, and in their sanctity, weren't able to predict that birth control would have happened. Their rules make sense for the technological advancement of their society. They're simply not relevant anymore to our modern times, but of course the ""holy book"" wasn't able to predict our technological advancement.
Being addicted to sex is bad, as passions should be balanced. But forcing everybody to have a life-long, unbrokable engagement in order to make love to someone, is plain delusional in our times.

How are you using force in this context? I'm pretty sure extra-marital sex was quite common even when marriage was stricter.

Force is probably a poorly chosen word, my bad. Pressure would be more accurate.

i finally moved in with my current bf of 2 and a half years. he’s the most amazing person i’ve ever met, and loves me more than anyone i’ve previously dated by leaps and bounds. we couldn’t keep our hands off each other past the first couple of dates.

it’s 100% up to you, but generally, waiting til marriage to have sex ends poorly for women, as their virgin husbands tend to idealize sex and hope for it to be the greatest pleasure they’ll ever experience, and for their wife to finally fulfill all their repressed sexual desires, only to be disappointed by how hard sex can be to have. virgin women tend to need time to acclimate to sex while men don’t. this breeds resentment.

what’s your main reason you’re interested in waiting til marriage?

He didn't, and it was mostly my fault.

We were both virgins when we met and had very religious families, but he was so cute and I was so horny, that I couldn't handle myself around him.
I teased him a lot in our first months, by sending him lots of nudes, kissing him until our lips hurt, dirty talking on phone and fondling him everytime we got somewhat alone.
But when it came to anything sex related, I just avoided it out of fear. He kept asking me to come over when his parents were away, but I neved had the courage to go.

About 6 months of me doing this, he gave me sort of a "ultimatum" and said he could not keep getting "blueballed"(first time I learned about what that meant) like that and that he was not willing about waiting until mariage for sex.

We ended up having sex, it was good, but I resented him for some time, I felt forced to do it.
Now, 8 years later, 3 of them married, I know it was also my fault for teasing so much a unexperienced young boy, filled with hormones.

If you really want to wait, you both need to have restraint and not behave like I did.

I mean you were both horny teenagers. What were you supposed to do? Trads always say to be trad, but restraining ourselves for years goes against our nature. I am pretty sure back in the olden days we weren't expected to just wait years to have sex, because they would get married early. Being a girlfriend/boyfriend today is basically the equivalent of getting married a few hundred years ago.

Say I slept around a bit in college and meet a cute virgin boy after that. Is it fair to tell him that I want to wait until marriage?

In the olden days people porked eachother at 16 and married when the girl accidentally got pregnant. People didn't really care that she gave birth 7 months after marriage, it was normal.

Only if you also tell him that you're not a virgin so he can decide if the wait is worth it or not.

Wrong. Before the Elizabethans, most people would get married through a verbal contract, a simple promise of lifelong companionship, without the need for weddings or bureaucracy. During the English Renaissance, there was a push to have marriage documented, and people only bothered to do that after pregnancy.

This could be used as an argument for lowering the age of consent as well as encouraging marrying earlier.

Anonymous 63990

NTA, but I don't think that's necessarily true. In the olden days, teenagers would typically marry each other, not older adults. The modern age of consent laws exist to protect teenagers from being exploited by mature adults. Most places already allow teenagers to have sex with each other, just not adults over 21. Also, allowing teens to marry already is allowed in many places with parent permission, if I'm not mistaken. That said, teens marrying just doesn't make sense with our modern lifestyles because most people separate after high school or college. Back when people would stay living in the same tribe or village, marriages between two teenagers could actually last.

>Is it worth it? Does it work?
Yes, absolutely.
If a guy stays with you for 2-3 years without sex, and then commits to spend the rest of his life with you, all without sex, you're going to be as sure as you can possibly get that he loves you for who you are.
Good men will wait because they will share the values you do: they will only want to give themselves to their life partner, and they will feel that commitment is more important than sex. Be firm about your beliefs, put yourself out there, and you can find a guy eventually. It'll be worth it.

The thing to watch out for are the guys who try to be pushy, who try to convince you that something 'doesn't count' so they can get themselves off. You have to be firm that you're waiting, and let them know there isn't any point for them to stay just for the thrill of chasing a woman who's 'hard to get'.

Good luck finding a guy!

Look up "Western European Marriage Pattern". The average age of marriage for women almost never went below 20.

Not actually true. While any particular style of dating has its own risks, waiting until marriage (even controlling for religion and things like socioeconomics) is associated with both the most stable and the happiest marriages, and the effect is even more pronounced in women than in men.
Virgin men as a whole are probably more likely to idealize sex, but a guy who saves himself for marriage is showing through his actions that he cares more about the ideal of commitment. I don't think it's comparable to men who are only virgins by circumstance, but who would quickly have sex if given the opportunity.
There's no getting around that the first time will likely be awkward, but it's made that much better because the spouses are able to learn and grow together, in a completely exclusive bond.

100% worth waiting for… I am so glad to have given each other our first time.. I would encourage everyone to do the same, I believes it leads to a happier life
marriage doesnt mean to me what it does to most people (a legal binding of two people or w/e) it means consummating your marriage and telling people around you that you are married. it means trust and love.

Waiting for marriage for religious reasons or waiting with sex until you are comfortable is fine and people should do it more.

Keeping your partner from intimacy with you so he can prove how pure he is and how much he loves you is nothing but the usual type of schizoid personality disorder abuse in relationships that either ends you up with a spineless servant or a broken love. Don't waste peoples time with your fucked mental problems.

Waiting for religious reasons means that you do it both because your religion tells you to do so.

Waiting to test your partner means you do it to abuse him/her for your own pleasure.

You have to take a lot of max dose retard-o-pills to not see the difference between lawfully keeping up the code of conduct of whatever movement you belong to and causing someone you allegedly love mental distress for personal gain.
Hurting others to make sure they never hurt you is also stupid as fuck because while doing so abusers contradict their own sentiment of being a valuable partner who isnt causing harm to their SO.
