Background & Objectives

This questionnaire is designed to collect information about consensual virgin sex experiences from people of all persuasions, races, age, cultural, and religious backgrounds. All information is collected anonymously. Results will be combined, analyzed and used to provide advice, suggestions, and background to people considering becoming sexually active. No names are used to collect data, and people of all sexual persuasions are encouraged to participate in this survey. The objective of this project is threefold: 1) to create a document that will inform people of what they might reasonably expect from their own experience and, 2) help to maximize the positive aspects of their own sexual experience and, 3) Provide parents with a factual document that can be used for the basis of an open conversation with adolescent offspring.
