Thomas Jefferson
“And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away all this artificial scaffolding...

{Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823}”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson

Jessica Valenti
“The desirable virgin is sexy but not sexual. She's young, white, and skinny. She's a cheerleader, a babysitter; she's accessible and eager to please (remember those ethics of passivity!). She's never a woman of color. SHe's never a low-income girl or a fat girl. She's never disabled. "Virgin" is a designation for those who meet a certain standard of what women, especially young women, are supposed to look like. As for how these young women are supposed to act? A blank slate is best.”
Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women

Tim O'Brien
“…he wanted to sleep inside her lungs and breathe her blood and be smothered. He wanted her to be a virgin and not a virgin all at once. He wanted to know her. Intimate secrets: Why poetry? Why so sad? Why that grayness in her eyes? Why so alone? Not lonely, just alone - riding her bike across campus or sitting off by herself in the cafeteria - even dancing, she danced alone - and it was the aloneness that filled him with love. He remembered telling her that one evening. How she nodded and looked away. And how, later, when he kissed her, she received the kiss without returning it, her eyes wide open, not afraid, not a virgin’s eyes, just flat and uninvolved.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

Jess C Scott, Master & Servant

Ernest Cline
“At the end of the day, I was still a virgin, all alone in a dark room, humping a lubed-up robot.”
Ernest Cline, Ready Player One

Shelly Crane

Kamand Kojouri
“I know you not quite well
Yet I foolishly surrender my mind to you.
Slowly and carefully you have cast a spell
Now my virgin heart only longs for you.
There is no need to push, I am already falling.
Once proudly tall, I’m no longer standing.
Knowing well that I am doomed to misery,
I will roll the dice and take delight in my suffering.”
Kamand Kojouri

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I...I haven’t done a lot of this.” His cheeks flushed pink and my eyes widened. “I mean, I’ve done some stuff, but not a lot. I haven’t...had sex.”
For the longest moment I couldn’t respond. All I could do was stare at him. “You’re a virgin?”
One side of his lips kicked up. “Yeah. You sound surprised.”
“I am. I thought... I don’t know. You were with...Paige. I just assumed you had sex before.”
“That would be a negative,” he replied, picking up my hand. “You’re looking at me like you don’t understand how it’s possible.”
He could really read minds.
“It’s gotten close, but I just never— I haven’t wanted to go that far.” He shrugged a bare shoulder.
“I haven’t done it, either,” I blurted out. “I mean, that’s super obvious’re the first boy I’ve kissed, but yeah, I don’t even know...what I’m saying and I’m just going to shut up.”
Rider chuckled. “Don’t. I love it when you ramble.”
“Only you would enjoy that.” I curled my fingers through his. “Do you want to...go that far with me?”
His lashes swept up and his eyes, with their greenish flecks, met mine. “Yeah. Yeah, I do. Someday.”
Warmth swept across my cheeks as I whispered, “I...I want that, too. Someday.”
The dimple in his right cheek appeared. “Then we’re on the same page.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Problem with Forever

Katie McGarry
“I’m destined to die a virgin.” My own admission shocked me. Had those words left my mouth? I rubbed the smooth material of Noah’s jacket. Maybe I should have gone off with him. Not to get high, but to … well … not die a virgin.


“HOLY CROW, ECHO. You hibernate for a year and a half and wake up with a bang.” Lila finished changing out of her church clothes and into a tight pink sweater and blue jeans. “Luke tells you he still loves you—and by the way, told you so. And Noah stinking Hutchins tries to kiss you. And you complained you were going to die a virgin.”
Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits

James C. Dobson
“Even if you have been having sex for years with many people, you can still become a "secondary virgin." That occurs when you repent of previous sexual sins and then determine not to be intimate with anyone until you are married. It will require discipline to stay in the hallway of doors, but it still bring the sweet benefits of healthiness, greater self-respect, and above all, harmony with the King. He will honor you for doing what is right.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: A Young Adult's Guide to a Meaningful Future

“Are you going to let me be eaten?' Billy Beecham looks stunned.
'Don't you know that sometimes Beast collectors get collected?' I ask him.
'But you're a virgin.'
'Virgins were never sacrifices,' I say. "Not to this kind of Beast. Virgin are collaborators.”

Virginia Woolf
“—Pues ahí, no aquí [...] siguen morando en nidos y en «boudoirs», en cortes de justicia y en oficinas los que nos aman; los que nos honran, vírgenes y hombres de negocios; abogados y médicos; los que prohíben, los que niegan, los que respetan sin saber por qué, los que alaban sin comprender; la todavía muy numerosa (alabado sea Dios) tribu de los decentes; que prefieren no ver; anhelan no saber; aman la oscuridad; esos todavía nos adoran, y con razón; porque les hemos dado riqueza, prosperidad, comodidad, holgura.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Nicole Douglas
“He knew how long she had been waiting and wanted her to be completely ready, even if that meant he didn’t get the relief tonight. He could wait forever if it meant doing right by her.”
Nicole Douglas, Afraid to Fall

Hryhorii Skovoroda
“Яким же чином ця Божа Премудрість народилась від Отця без матері й від Діви без отця, як то Вона воскресла й знов до свого Отця вознеслася, - про те краще не питай, бо й у цій, як і в інших науках, є порожні тонкощі, в яких тільки й може мати місце та несправжня віра, що її називають умоглядною. Роби й тут так, як в оперному театрі, тобто вдовольняйся тим, що в тебе перед очима, а за завіси й лаштунки не заглядай. Ця заслона зроблена нарочито для легкодухих і надто вже цікавих сердець, бо ницість чим більше знайомиться з великими справами та людьми, тим менше їх шанує.”
Hryhorii Skovoroda, Буквар миру

“Carolina protected her so that Suneetha should remain a virgin until her wedding night. The worth of such purity in character was immeasurable in this society and culture. Therefore, she never even allowed Suneetha to go with other village girls when they went to the desolate cinnamon gardens to gather firewood.”
Swarnakanthi Rajapakse, The Master's Daughter

Victoria Holt
“Did it really happen as the legend said? Did they in truth dance here? Were they struck down in their defiance and turned to stone, to stand on this spot as the centuries passed? How fortunate they were! Sudden death was preferable to a lingering one. I thought of the seventh – the one who had been dragged to the hollow wall, the one who was shut in to die; and I was filled with a momentary melancholy.”
Victoria Holt, The Legend of the Seventh Virgin
