Many people dream of the moment when they lose their virginity as being the most magical thing in their life. A particular moment when the universe converges with them and their significant others when nature aligns itself with the moment of pleasure, birds chirping, roses blooming, and rainbows sprouting. Unfortunately, it’s not your decision to take, but rather your genes decide when it’s time to lose your virginity.
There is no magic in deciding when it’s time to punch the V-card and when not. Apparently your genes decide when it’s time to lose your virginity, not you. A team of scientists concluded that people tend to inherit behaviors from their parents, including the moment when they step into full adulthood.
Religious people believe that God has a higher plan for individuals and that everything happens for a reason. Actions are interpreted through the filter of God’s will. Scientists also believe in a higher power that dictates our moves; only it’s called genetics, not God.
And according to the latest studies in the field, genetics is responsible not only for receding hairlines, hairy lips, lazy eyes, and short legs, but your genes decide when it’s time to lose your virginity, too.
Furthermore, the researchers discovered that people who tend to lose their virginity early in their lives are more prone to bad health and weak academics than those who have it their genes to wait.
This is not the first time when genes are linked with major changes that happen to a person’s body. Previous research also showed that puberty is tied to one’s genetic make-up.
In order to reach these conclusion, Ken Ong, and his team analyzed data collected from almost 400.000 individuals from the United States, United Kingdom, and Iceland.
The scientists found that the time of a person’s intercourse is linked to one’s genes, as well as the time at which a woman first gives birth to a baby.
“While social and cultural factors are clearly relevant, we show that age at first sexual intercourse is also influenced by genes which act on the timing of childhood maturity and by genes which act on the timing of childhood physical maturity and by genes which contribute to our natural differences in personality types, “said John Perry, the lead author.
So apart from everything from the color of your eyes to the moment when you’ll reach puberty, your genes decide when it’s time to lose your virginity, too.
