Yes, I agree with this. Many believe that boys and girls have different emotions regarding the matter but the initial reaction is the same. You have that “What didta I just do?” moment and it does take a moment to sink in and realize that you have lost something you can’t have again. After the initial “shock” well, boys will be boys and a boy became a man. I cannot speak for women however but for me, the experience boosted my confidence, as it would for any guy. There’s just that issue of being safe.
