29-Year-Old Virgin Is Going To Become A Mother And People Are Understandably Confused

Science has come a long way.

You might have thought that you need to have sex to get pregnant, but that’s not always the case. There’s something called artificial insemination, where the sperm cells are placed in a woman’s uterus and allowed to grow naturally. That’s what a woman, known only as Lauren, did.

She’s 29 years old, and while she’s had boyfriends in the past and has gone up to kissing and such, to her, it was “not something I want to relive.”

While she wasn’t ready for sex or human intimacy, she was ready to become a mother. When asked about it in a VICE story, she had this to say.

“This is me basically giving a middle finger to the people who told me I couldn’t do it because I’m not married yet. It’s the opposite of a religious reason. If you’re telling me I can’t do this, I’m going to do it anyway.

“The more you know yourself, the more you’re going to be comfortable with the choices you make. I know what I’m comfortable with, I know what I want. I think people always say to take time to love yourself. It sounds so friggin’ cliche, but that’s the best thing you can do. Once you know what you want, who the hell cares what others think?”

People are supportive… If a little confused.

There was understandable confusion.

And a lot of people simply couldn’t wrap their heads around it.

Still a virgin, and also a mother.

She’s as empowered as she wants to be.
