Should I use "at" or "on" in the sentence below?
She lost her virginity at/on her father's cousin's farm.
BTW, is it correct to say "her father's cousin's farm"?
Either at or on is fine. "Her father's cousin's farm" is a mouthful, but there is nothing wrong with it. Her father's cousin is also her cousin once removed, so saying "her cousin's farm" would also fit in standard usage.
By saying "her cousin," one would be sacrificing exactness for brevity, though. "Cousin" brings to mind primarily one's uncle's or aunt's child, not one's father's cousin.
