I'm 21 years old, I've never had sexual relations with anyone, never had a steady girlfriend, but I have kissed girls before (my last kiss was 3 years ago so I haven't had much recent practice :P). I'm always told by my friends (both guys and girls) that I should get some "practice" by dating girls that I'm not particularly interested in, because by their logic girls want "experienced" guys because they're better at dating in general (i.e. understanding women, sex, how to talk to women, etc.), before going for girls that I actually am interested in.
Personally I don't really care if a girl's been with other guys before me (but that could just be the virgin in me talking).

there's a double standard with sex and dating and it has two sides.
For women: Men want a woman who is good in bed, but not a slut. If she's had too much practice (and is good) it's cause she's a tramp and then she won't be "girlfriend material" anymore, but if she's too innocent, she's boring in bed. "lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets" is the ideal, but in reality it's impossible to go through your dating life without ever being called a slut.
For men: women want an experienced guy who we don't have to teach everything. We like it when you're open to taking direction without being offended (all women like different things), but we don't want to have to break every step down for you. Then it's no longer sexy, it's an anatomy lesson. BUT we also don't want a player who's been around the block six times just last week. If you've had too many women, we don't want to think about you fucking everyone we know either.
It's impossible to please everyone.3
