“Virginity… ‘Tis too cold a companion.  Away with ‘t!”

“To speak on the part of virginity is to accuse your mothers, which is most infallible disobedience.”

“Besides, virginity is peevish, proud, idle, made of self-love,
which is the most inhibited sin in the canon.”

“Virginity… the longer kept, the less worth.”  – All’s Well That Ends Well

I’m reading All’s Well That Ends Well this month with my reading group.  Act 1 Scene 1 is hilarious!  The bawdy sex talk, the innuendo, the oh-so-strong condemnation of virginity.  There is more in the scene than what is quoted above, but I’ve copied at least a few of the lines that brought a smile to my face.
