omg so i was just kind of staring at this, wondering what the actual fuck louis was doing with his life, but you know, i’m not judging, but it suddenly hit me, what if the first heart is his heart, and then there’s a shield type heart that’s protecting his heart, then the buck is standing guard as more protection. i know he says most of his tattoos don’t have a meaning, but i just like this idea okay.
Boys are rarely told that their virginity is a gift, or indeed that their sexuality is about “giving” something to another person – lightly or not. Boys “get laid”, “get lucky”, “get some”. They “take a girl’s virginity”, “take advantage”; if they’re thoughtful, they “take their time”. Boys are not taught to think of themselves or their virginity as something to be offered up, unwrapped and enjoyed.
