Virginity is special to some and not to others. To be honest, I'd prefer to lose mine to somebody who loves and cares about me. And as for age, at 16 it's legal anyway, but I think /1415 is a good age to start. It depends though, whether you feel mature and secure enough in doing it. For starters, they could bring in better sex. ed., so that girls knew the risks and all. If they said all about STIs and HIV, and pregnancies, I bet half of them wouldn't do it, or would use protection. But that's my opinion...
