Waiting To Lose Virginity Can be Problematic
People who lose their virginity late in life could be faced with sexual dysfunction according to a recent study.
Although past researches have linked early sexual activity to health problems,this new study suggests that waiting too long to start having sex carries risks of its own.
According to researchers at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute’s HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies:
Men who lose their virginity in their 20s, in particular, seemed to be more likely to experience sexual problems that include difficulty becoming sexually aroused and reaching orgasm.
The increase in sexual problems was also seen in those who had a comparably earlier sexual debut. And the researchers were quick to point out that there isn’t enough evidence to say for sure whether waiting to have sex necessarily leads to sexual dysfunction down the road.
The study will appear in the January 2008 issue of the American Journal of Public Health.
