A new study has just been published claiming that scientists have found a link between your genetic make-up and the age you lose your virginity.
Other than the fact we'd always assumed that the age you begin to have sex is down to personal and social influences, a team at Cambridge University have successfully identified a bunch of gene differences that can affect everything from the age you hit puberty to the age you're most likely to lose your virginity.
According to Dr John Perry, one of the authors behind the study, the results from over 380,000 participants prove that biological factors make up a quarter of peoples decision: "We were able to calculate for the first time that there is a heritable component to age at first sex, and the heritability is about 25%, so one quarter nature, three quarters nurture."
Although it sounds completely crazy, the research is actually focused on a bunch of gene variants associated with risk-taking behaviour - meaning that if you carry one of the 38 variants (like CADM2) you're more likely to have sex at a younger age.
So, when you think about it; it kinda makes sense.
