1. [+615, -134] Men probably lowered the age by a few years to try to look cool. Women probably raised the age by a few years to try to look virginal.

2. [+439, -44] I don't believe this......

3. [+309, -53] Protect your virginity.

4. [+43, -12] Fighting to everyone staying a virgin before marriage

5. [+39, -27] I'm pretty sure both men and women have their first experience in their teens nowadays...

6. [+38, -7] My friend is a teen counselor... and I remember hearing about her counseling a 13 year old getting caught in a sex act and that was 10 years ago. I bet the average age is actually two years lower than what's on paper.

7. [+33, -2] I'm a man and I think I raised the male average by a lot. Sorry about that.

8. [+30, -4] Don't call women sl*ts if you're the one going around buying prostitutes

9. [+24, -43] Women rated their satisfaction with their gender at 57 points? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why though? They don't go to the army, they get tons of benefits for being a woman... I wonder if they'd still say that after experiencing their twenties as a man.

10. [+19, -22] It's rare to find a virgin these days just like it's rare to find a man who doesn't have prostitution experience
