Man Praised For Taking Terminally Ill Friend's Virginity

Man Praised For Taking Terminally Ill Friend's Virginity

He said it was 'the first time I ever had sex with someone I loved but wasn't in love with'

A man has been praised for taking the virginity of his dying friend.

The anonymous 31-year-old shared the touching tale on Reddit on the one year anniversary of his friend's passing.

In the post, the man explained that his friend of six years was terminally ill, and when her aggressive cancer returned she said she didn't want to go through chemotherapy again, but rather enjoy what time she had left.

"One night when we were all drinking she admitted to me she was still a virgin but she doesn't want to lose it to just any stranger," he wrote. "At least somebody she trusts before she goes.

"That person was me. She didn't force me to do anything I didn't want to, she asked but was willing to drop it and pretend it never happened if I decided no."

Keen to help his pal with this dying wish, the man said he decided to make it 'extra special', and they got a nice hotel for the occasion.

He continued: "Was the first time I ever had sex with someone I loved but wasn't in love with if that makes sense.

"It was still a very intense experience. Not in a bad way. There was still lots of emotions.

"Even though she seemed so happy she got to lose her virginity to someone she trusts part of me wonders if I did take advantage. If I was wrong for saying yes.

"It's just hard because I miss her so much. But I'm still glad at least I got to give her something before she left."

The post went viral and the man was inundated with praise from the Reddit community, which assured him he shouldn't feel guilty about what he did.

One person commented: "This is a beautiful beautiful story man. You did so right by her. I'm sorry for your loss, she seemed like an amazing woman."


Another said: "I think you did a wonderful thing. She wanted to experience something with someone she cared about and that's exactly what you did."

A third added: "Honestly what you did for your friend is a beautiful thing. No you never took advantage of her.

"She's trusted you with one of her last wishes and you should be honoured. You're obviously an amazing, trustworthy person!"

Understandably overwhelmed by the outpouring of love on the difficult anniversary, the poster thanked the Reddit community in an addendum that read: "I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful words and support.

"Today has been such a hard day but you have all made me feel lighter."
