Dank der Pandemie geht’s mir besser damit, mit 27 noch Jungfrau zu sein

Ich war 25 Jahre alt, als ich mich mit der Möglichkeit anfreundete, als Jungfrau zu sterben. Es war im März 2020, rund um den Globus wurde die Pandemie mit jedem Tag schlimmer und selbst etwas Alltägliches wie der wöchentliche Supermarkteinkauf plötzlich zur Gefahr. Und ich musste einsehen, dass ich es wohl nicht mehr schaffen würde, vor dem richtigen Ausbruch der Coronakrise zum ersten Mal Sex zu haben. Meine Keuschheit war keine Absicht, zumindest nicht im traditionellen Sinn. Mit Religion ...
