Virgins and former virgins of the world, be happy. You now all have a not-so-masked crusader telling you just why you should be so proud of your virginity. Being a former virgin is great of course, but virginity has some great perks.
George Watsky is a slam poet- turned- rapper who did the slam poetry circuit for a few years before going musical. You may recognize him from his video Pale Kid Raps Fast
. He’s won tons of awards for his poetry and I personally give him some props for being the dorky white guy talking about some pretty important issues.
Back in 2006 he performed this poem V for Virgin
which was propelled to popularity by Russell Simmons—a pretty cool guy in the music industry. Simmons started Def Jam records which produces music by Frank Ocean, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, Kanye West, and tons others, so he knows what good sound is.
This poem is pretty sexy for talking about not having sex. But in truth, not having sex is sexy! You get to enjoy life and experience so many more things without having to worry about STIs
Watsky points out all the best things about being a normal kid, which is as sexy as sexy gets. Because you know what? Those kids who go to school, learn about cool TV, music, countries, and politics are the ones who are the sexiest. The kids who learn a unique sport, card game, dance, or language are the sexiest. Doing your best in high school, while you have time to try all the weird and wacky things that come with the unique privilege of being in high school…that, my friends, is sexy.
I think George Watsky got it right. Because no matter how many crushes you get and get over, hairstyles you run through, or friends you may have, the most important person in your life is yourself. So treat yourself right, and enjoy being your crazy weird self for as long as you can.
