Or should I say, is it still common?
I am a 26 year old expat from Taiwan. I have lived and travelled several places before, and I have been working in Malaysia for almost a year. Wonderful place and people :-)
Well sex is not something we talk very openly at the workplace. But I feel out of place in Malaysia sometimes. At least among my female colleagues.
I once overheard 2 Malaysian Chinese male colleagues in my office talking about me in the Bahasa Melayu language. They did not know I understood a little Bahasa. The previous day we were discussing about my boyfriend (now ex-bf) coming to visit me and cohabitating with me. Well the topic I started was about the price of renting a master bedroom in Kuala Lumpur, and I assumed the topic of sharing a bed was not a taboo topic.
Anyway the 2 guys were apparently discussing my virginity, saying since I am Taiwanese, and obviously since I share a room with my partner, therefore I am not.
The reason I am asking is because I have broken up with my Taiwanese ex. (He cheated on me). Recently I met a nice and wonderful Malaysian. But I think he did not want to continue our relationship after finding out I am not a virgin. However he did not mention this openly. :-(
I find this very insulting, but I realize different countries have different cultures. *sigh*
