OMG! 7 Popular Songs That Are Totally About Losing Your Virginity
Some of the best songs ever are written about real-life experiences. The decision to have sex, or NOT to have sex for the first time is one of the biggest choices a person makes in his or her lifetime. Part of making that decision is about managing expectation — What will it actually be like? Will you actually feel differently afterward? Will it change your relationship with bae? Those questions are really hard to answer, but the good news is that something that can help exists — the entertainment industry!
"Fifteen," by Taylor Swift
The Most Spot-On Lyric: "And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind / We both cried / 'Cause when you're fifteen and someone tells you they love you / you're gonna believe them"
No matter what rough time you're going through, there's definitely a Taylor song that can help you deal. The crooner doesn't say she had sex in this song off of her album, Fearless, but she does admit that her BFF, Abigail Anderson, lost her virginity to a guy who lost interest after it happened.
While a lot of people choose to have sex thinking it's going to bring them closer to their honey, the sad reality is that sometimes it does just the opposite. This narrative is unfortunately something than many high-school students live through, and realism is something that Tay always depicts perfectly.
