“Does paganism have any views on losing one’s virginity? I am a 15 year old pagan girl, and my long-time, loving boyfriend and I had sex for the first time last night. It was a very special, spiritual and loving experience, and I don’t regret it at all. What are the pagan views on this, though? Also, it was Lughnasadh, AND it was a full moon. Do either the sabbath or lunar phase have any sort of symbolic meaning in regards to this? I know it’s a personal question, please don’t judge me. )O(“
Paganism does not have any views on this issue. Unlike in almost every other major religion, premarital sex is not a sin or forbidden in Paganism. In Witchcraft, however, there are spells and rituals on sex and sexual actions – not about virginity or anything, but just about the sexual experience in general, enhancing it, or attracting it.
Sex, like religion, is a very personal thing and it’s something only YOU know when your ready for. No religion or faith should tell you otherwise.
Lammas is a harvest festival, and it being a full moon is just a coincidence. Though, rituals on the full moon (sex is often considered a ritual) are usually “enhanced” and have a power-boost, so that might have helped your experience feel… special. So, no. There aren’t really any symbolic meanings for having sex on a full moon or a SABBAT, not sabbath by the way… Pagans aren’t Jewish.
