I’m writing this article as a follow up to the one I did on what’s going on in the mind of guys who are shy and inexperienced with women. I got some feedback from women on that piece. Some said that they were shy with men and several of the points in it applied to their own situation. Others pointed out how shy women have their own struggles as well.

This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn’t have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points though you’ll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts.

This view is basically wrong. But it turns out to be wrong in an interesting and informative way.
First of all, we may wonder about the actual trends in sexual behavior. Most groups of people age have broadly similar amounts of sex; probably something like sexual encounters per year. Never-married people have the least sex, about encounters per year, while ever -married people have more sex, about encounters per year, on average. Historically, never-married men have reported higher sexual frequency than never-married women.
What It’s Really Like To Be a Virgin in Your 20s
There are many reasons people choose to have sex. I never learned how to ask a girl out, even though several of them asked me out, and it led to some very shallow relationships. In university, I was in clubs that kept me very busy and had little time for a social life. I got into World of Warcraft for a year, picked up drawing as a hobby … and then suddenly I was 27 and worked in an office where every girl is at least 40 and usually divorced with kids, and I honestly had no idea how to ask a girl out or even realize if she was interested in me.
