Answer by Deepak Mehta:
Is virginity something to be valued? Is it a treasure? Or a status symbol?
Is someone who is not a virgin somehow less desirable/valuable than someone who is?
Is the implication here that loss of virginity is akin to loss of innocence?
No one should value virginity. Sex is natural. Not having sex is not something to be proud of (of course, if you are above the legal consent age).
It is up to the personal preference of the individual.
