So I just realized that so far out of all my books, released and soon to-be released, I’m at a count of 3 virgin heroines to two non-virgin heroines. I’m bringing this up because of a discussion I remember on a romance forum.
Some of the participants argued that they disliked seeing virgin heroines in contemporaries and others said they actually preferred it, because of the whole “first love, last love” thing.
When I write my heroines or even heroes for that matter. I don’t plan out ahead what their sexual history will be, it just seems to “come to me” based on how their character develops and what is “revealed” to me about their past.
My question is, Is it really that horrible to write virgin heroines in this day and age? I mention heroines, because while there are male virgins, they’re quite rare compared to females.
P.S : Any lurkers out there are more than welcome to post. I won’t bite, I swear 😉
