I am 13 years old. I am completly and utterly in love. My boyfriend hudson and i have been dating for a year and a half. Naturally we have not had sex yet, so still a virgin. And to tracy white, i tip my hat to you. I have been on and off bulimic and have tried to commit suicide twice. Im happy now. But i said nothing to noboby about it. You were brave enough to tell yourself you needed help. I did when i read your book. You need to know that u saved my life. Thank you tracy. Thank you.

Still there. Hope to remain there until marriage. As for written material… I suppose that doesn’t count. Maybe.

i already turned 20 last week and am still a virgin… no, i’m not saying it like being a virgin at 20 is some kind of life accomplishment or failure… i don’t think i’m any better or worse off than my friends who are no longer virgins… lord knows there must be a billion other 20year-olds, who are not in a convent or planning to be in a convent, that are still virgin… the thing is, i honestly do not know what to feel about still being a virgin… i mean, virginity has never really been an issue for me, morally speaking… i don’t really see the difference between doing it before or after marriage… and don’t consider either case to be a good or bad thing… losing, or more likely giving someone’s virginity is just basically something that happens to everyone, with some just a bit sooner or later than others… and i guess i just happen to fall on later n_n

i don’t know what to make of my virgin story. never told anyone about it cept my current bf.& if anyone i knew found out,it’s either d burning cross for me (from my family) or shocked expression (from my friends). Y? 1:he was 32,i was 19.(i’m 20 now). 2:he was my teacher. & 3:he’s married w 3 kids.he’s reputed 2 be a lady’s man & rumors has it he impregnated a student.i didn’t care about them.i found him attractive & at that time when i was greatly curious w sexuality,he provided answers 2 my questions.sort of.so when i asked him to give me kissing lessons (i can be quite daring) he didn’t hesitate to comply.but d session(wc was in his car inside campus) turned into something else.we ended up in a motel & i ended up devirginized.i wasn’t ready for it but i slept w him several times after that,anyway.my bf puts d situation in this analogy:i gave the guy my pinky finger,he pulled me by my whole hand. (he tricked me,in other words.)i only have 1 regret & it’s that i didn’t give my virginity to some1 i love–& that’s my bf,whom i met months later.still,it was a learning experience.my sexuality blossomed & by d time i slept w my bf, it was one eXplosive night.(we’re still hot for each other at present. :-]) i realize now that if a woman is out for self-discovery(& sex lessons) like i was,she should do it w an open mind & a balanced emotional state.she should also consider her actions well.there are lots of risks, after all.& here’s d most important thing: DON’T SHIT IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD.u won’t like the smell.i had to live w my action w so much uncertainty & hurt.well,that’s my story.luckily for me, my bf came along.

I JUST READ A COUPLE OF YOUR COMICS, AND I LOVE THE ANIMATION, WAY COOL. AS FOR MY VIRGIN STORY, WELL, I’VE GOT THAT ‘CHRISTIAN-WAIT-UNTIL-I’M-MARRIED’ KINDA THING GOING ON, SO HONESTLY, THOUGH EXCITEDLY AWAITING MY TURN, I’M 23 AND STILL A VIRGIN (strange as it may seem, it just feels natural to be a virgin @ 23)

Loved the story. my own (and all others afterwords to be honest) was an interesting comedy of errors. I always believed in finding the humor in any situation however sad or special.

p.s.

love the safe sex tie in

I remember my first time i was 16 and it was with a girl i had been friends with for a while. One night she called me and said her mom and her were fighting and she wanted me to come get her, it was 1 am. So i went and got her and we didnt have anywhere to go so we parked in a church parking lot a few blocks from her house, and we talked for hours and listened to music and then something happened.. we started to kiss and we just keep going, I climbed over on top of her on the passanger side and we just kept going, Not really knowing what i was doing but i knew i didnt want to stop. As we started I was so excited I was finished just minutes later, but being my first time i didnt want to stop so i didnt tell her and i just kept going and before we knew it day light was upon us and we had to stop. I ended up dating her for 3 years and then she broke my heart… Well thanks for the little cartoon and taking me back to that wonderfull time in my life that I had almost forgotten about.. Keep up the good work.. :)

It happened on 8-15-01,15 days before my 15th bday. My best friend and i were spending the weekend at my cabin at the lake just like anyother summer weekend,but this time my mom wassnt there she was coming up friday and my grams was staying with us untill then. So we basically didnt have any rules. We went down to my dock thursday night and we want to go swimming so we stripped and jumped in. One thing lead to the other. We started kissing and feeling and then I got cold so he got out and got me a towel and then we made a bed on the dock and then we did it there under the stars and the moon light it was great but afterwards I realizedthat he was my best friend and that is all but he didnt feel that way. He wanted to become boyfriend and girlfriend. So then I started dating someone else, he didnt like that so we didnt talk for a year. Then 8-15-02 we went that weekend together just him and I we worked everything out and did it again and wow… thats my first time.

well the first time that i had sex i thought that he had loved me but it turns out that he was just going to use me to see if he could. i had known him all my life and we grew up together and he had never done things like that but he started to hang out with another goup and he changed but i wasn’t going to care b/c he’LOVED ME’ so i thought.

Hi tracy,

I liked your cartoon. I thought it was cute. My first was seeing someone already when he deflowered me, but we had fooled around in the past and I in my naivete was convinced he would stop seeing her and concentrate only on me. He was a smooth talking college friend of my sister’s and I was still a senior in high school, so since my sis saw more of him than I did, I told her to give him an ultimatum, kind of along the lines of ‘either her or me’. Yeah, right. Reality hit rather hard, but I got over it and we became friends, but not the kind of friends that you and Mike became. S. never became a relationship advisor, but a between relationship kind of guy if you get my drift. Which was fine with me. Anyway, I would like to email your cartoon to another friend of mine, who incidentally, also knew S, and was friends with him in the same way; and what is totally amazing is that all involved knew everything about the other two and there were no hard feelings anywhere.

Anyway, thanks for the entertainment. : -)

what if you don’t have a story yet, and every day passes and you wish more and more that someone would call, or ask you out, or show some INTEREST.

But then, when they do I don’t know how to respond, so I just hide up in my apartment and read web comics. Oh well. sweet escapism.

Mine was in college…I was afraid to tell the girl I was a…you know…I did tell her afterward, and she said she’d wished I’d told her before. We got together a few more times the following school year. She’s a teacher now.

Great comics Tracy!! I’m glad someone understands some of what we as teenagers have to go through.

Another superb strip! I can’t believe you would reveal that story to the world. Very well-done, esp. the recurring condom motif and the second-to-last page. And the checklist was clever. But personally I think the text-only pages might look better hand-lettered.

Anyone who likes this stuff should read Lynda Barry. You can read her stuff in color on http://www.salon.com , just run a search. Very much in a similar style, both in form and content. It’s clear that Tracy’s a fan.

Also, folks, check out http://www.demian5.com for some amazingly funny web comics in a completely unrelated vein. (Recommended by Scott McCloud
Keep on keepin’ on, Tracy! I’ll be back for more!

Loved the panel with the girl holding her head between her knees while her heart broke. I relate (even though I’m not a girl). And I’ve always thought about how hard it is to stay friends with people I’ve dated. Great Story!

EXCELLENT story!

There really is nothing like the first time…thank goodness…

jazz baby said:

what a sweet story. i can totally relate. my virginity was in many ways also a ‘gift’ to use randy’s term. my first time was special for me, although my partner had been ‘around the block’ a few times if you know what i mean. anyway, not long after my partner and i ‘exchanged gifts,’ i discovered, to my dismay, that my partner had given me a ‘gift’ that kept on ‘giving’ if you know what i mean.

randy said:

9:46 AM

Very personal story. And very good. It makes me reflect on my virginity. I never felt that I ‘had’ to lose it, like most people seem to. It was a gift that I was going to give to the woman that I loved. I knew when the moment was right, and I gave her the most precious gift that I could give her.
