You know how you mother always told you first impressions tend to stick? She might have been right — even in ways she was certainly not referring to. According to new research, the tone set when you lose your virginity apparently stays the rest of your love life … forever.

University of Tennessee psychology doctoral student Matthew Schaffer and C. Veronica Smith, Ph.D., University of Mississippi assistant psychology professor, designed a study to observe the ways in which your virginity loss affects your future sex life. The study, published in the Journal of Sex and Martial Therapy, looks at whether or not there are consequences or benefits to how unpleasantly or happily you first had sex.

    Not for everyone but this definitely applies to one of my friends. She lost it to a guy who wasnt committed to her at all, was shady and didn’t really respect her because he tried to pressure her into all types of foolishness including unprotected, Smh. They also barely knew each other and had only met in person once before. Now years later every guy she tells me about that she slept with falls into the same pattern…no defined relationship, actions proving he doesn’t care, barely know each other etc. I don’t get it!
