Did you feel guilty after having sex for the first time? Take heart as young women today are actually “enjoying losing their virginity” compared to earlier days.

According to a research, losing virginity these days is more enjoyable than it has been in 20 years, especially if you are a woman.

“Women are reporting more pleasure and less guilt from their first time and men are reporting less anxiety,” said the findings appearing in a Time report.

Researchers found overall gender differences in male and female approaches to virginity loss.

But those differences have changed significantly since the research started in 1980.

“While men reported the same amount of pleasure from their first sexual experience across three decades, women have reported a significant increase in the first time,” the study noted.

Men also reported less anxiety over the three decades and women reported less guilt.

According to researchers, female sexuality is more likely to change with social and cultural norms.

The study appeared in the Journal of Sex Research.
