'Losing' or 'giving' virginity?

Excellent and clear post on this topic by a blogger known as @fearlessknits on Twitter.

Well worth a read - here's a very brief quote from the article:

If virginity is something that is given rather than taken, then that subtly shifts sex from being something that one person does to another, to something that two people do together. All in a mode of speech. That, if widely used by teachers in sex ed classes, should only take 15 - 20 years or so to become the accepted and expected way to discuss this.
