  1. Notes: The table reports odds ratios of logit models’ estimates based SELFY data (cumulative dataset 2000 and 2017). The dependent variable is “virginity status.” Robust standard errors (corrected for heteroskedasticity) are reported in parentheses. All models control also for all the variables included in main model (see Table 1), not reported. The symbols ***, **, and * indicate that coefficients are statistically significant, respectively, at the 1, 5, and 10% level, respectively
