Is this a metaphor for "'If we do everything but....' are we still virgins?"

Wanna know how I first learned?

1/3 (one-third) = 0.333333333...(repeating)

3(1/3) [three times one-third] = 3(0.33333333...[repeating]) = ??

There are more conclusive proofs, but if the 0.99999... is truly infinitely repeating, it would equal 1. This is just a very simplistic way to explain the problem; even elementary school children can do this kind of multiplication.

Simple way to put it is there are no possible numbers between .999 repeating and 1 so they are equal.
