A 106-year-old woman in Britain is not only a virgin, she has never ever been kissed.

Isa Blyth, who turned 106 on Saturday, puts her longevity to being a virgin, The Sun reported.

She is of the opinion that being single has made her stay strong.

"I'm not sure if anyone ever tried it on - but they never got anywhere! She says she never felt the need for romance and never had time for a man.

"She did like the odd sherry though," her niece Sheena Campbell was quoted as saying.

Blyth was born in 1904.

She used to attend flower club and church, sang in the choir, and played golf or gardening. She always stayed in Edinburgh and worked for 35 years as a private secretary to a whisky producer.

Sheena said: "She was wrapped up in her church and she loved her choir and flower club.

"And she had a high-powered job, which meant she was always busy.

"I think she was also a bit of a maiden lady as she was the first-born and acted as a head with her six brothers and sisters.

"She never had time to be sad. She's an amazing character. You wouldn't believe she was 106."
