For those who choose to put their vag on lockdown for a minute, the single life doesn't include much sex.

We asked three dudes to weigh in.

For most single ladies who've been flying solo for a hot second, living the single life means lots of quality time with girlfriends, excellent swiping abilities, and a whole lot of whatever the hell she wants to do.

But for those who choose to put their vag on lockdown for a minute, the single life doesn't include much sex.

While there's no shame in the waiting game, one of our editors wanted to know whether guys will care about her three-year celibacy record.

So we asked three staffers from Men's Health, who are dudes, to weigh in on her burning Q. Here's what they said.

Dean Stattmann, brand editor: ONLY IN A GOOD WAY.

"In fact, he may actually like you more. It shows you're selective, and most guys find that sexy."

Paul Kita, senior editor: HE MIGHT BE RELIEVED.

"Unless you forgot how to have sex along the way, you'll be just fine. Bring it up when a passionate makeout turns to dedicated explorations - it'll be more comfortable than an awkward dinner conversation."

Michael Sneeden, senior video producer: THAT'S UP TO YOU.

"He won't care if you don't. Like most things we might be embarrassed about, it's not a big deal to anyone else. And you don't know the guy's situation either - his dry spell may be even longer."


As Pumbaa famously said: no worries.

Celibacy is nothing to be ashamed of (even J. Law's been there!), and the more confident you are, the smoother your first time (in a long time) will go - nothing makes for better sex than feeling awesome in your skin, after all.

Your new partner will probably appreciate your honesty and vulnerability.

And on the off chance that he acts judgy or turned off, save yourself for someone more worthy.
