Virgin Lips

By grasslova, Highland, UT

V.L. Stands for Virgin Lips. It’s a term that should be far more widespread and is the status your lips should hold for more than the first ten years of your life. People don’t seem to realize that once you give your first kiss away, there's no going back. Once you give it, it's gone for life. No over-sized eraser can fade the marks of crimson lipstick. This applies not just to the virginity of your lips, but of your body... When you start young, you end young. No refunds. No exchanges. Final sale; take it or leave it. Once it's gone, it's gone. Forever. When learning this lesson in life, you get no second chances, just one shot. Take it or leave it? I choose to leave it. Call me old-fashioned, but I'm waiting until marriage, waiting for Love. True Love. Not the deception of Lust, Love's shadow; she who wanders dingy streets, ambling with outstretched hands, ever-searching for something clean and pure to defile with her filthy hands.

This article varies between the different audience that reads it and how they interpret the article. A first kiss is nothing, its a simple non dramatic thing. If you look at some of the religious audience, they might view a kiss as a big deal with disgraceful factors involved.

Oh my gosh I was literally planning an article like this! Hooray for you for writing it! This is wonderful, brave, and so so true. I wish virginity was upheld in our society; we have to work to make it so with pieces like this. Great job!

She wasn't shaming them. It was an  opinion essay. They should be ashamed if they gave it up, but if they were forced, it's different. There is no price on virginity.
