10 Ways Dyeing Your Hair For The First Time Is Like Losing Your Virginity

virgin-hair

Believe it or not, saying goodbye your virgin hair is a lot like losing your actual virginity. Whether you’re getting highlights, lowlights, or a full-head dye job, altering your natural hair color for the first time, especially as a full-grown adult, can be pretty terrifying … but also exciting!

I recently decided to undergo a hair transformation myself, and while it wasn’t super drastic, it was enough of a change that I still felt all the feelings. Dirty blonde up until this time last week, I decided I wanted to lighten my locks with a full head of highlights and go blonder for the first time ever. So I did. And now I’m MUCH blonder. Believe it or not, I found that parting ways with my former hair was a lot like having sex for the first time all over again. Let me explain… Keep reading »

Meet Elizabeth Raine, The 27-Year-Old Med Student Auctioning Off Her Virginity

  • A 27-year-old woman going by the name of “Elizabeth Raine” is auctioning off her virginity to help pay for med school … well, kind of. She says money is her motivation, but she doesn’t need the money. Her auction takes place on April 1, so it might be a big joke. [Huffington Post]

Attention All Non-Virgins: Jessa Duggar Thinks You’re A Big Slut

Attention-All-Non-Virgins- Jessa-Duggar-Thinks-You're-A-Big-Slut

“We’ve set our guidelines really high, and people will not understand that. They’ll be like, ‘That’s weird. How are you going to show you really love the guy if you’re not having sex with him before marriage?’ But that’s where we purpose in this stage of our relationship to focus on building strong communication because anyone can just go out and have sex. [As] time goes on, maybe at engagement, we’ll talk about hand holding, but we want to save our first kiss for marriage, too…In today’s day and time it’s a little bit strange to be in your early 20s and have not had sex, but it’s how our parents did it. It’s how our grandparents did it. We have a self-respect where we feel confident in who we are, even apart from having a sexual relationship. In a monogamous relationship where it’s just one man and one woman there’s like a zero percent chance of you contracting that type of sexually transmitted disease, but when you’re promiscuous and just go out and live like however — having sex with every guy who comes along — then there’s a huge chance, a probably 80 percent chance you’ll come down with something like that and get something that will really affect you for the rest of your life.”

Jessa Duggar says some whack shit about sex in an interview with Cosmo.com. I think her most disturbing insinuation is that there’s no middle ground between being a virgin and “having sex with every guy who comes along.” For the record, some of us sluts occasionally set our guidelines really high. And when we do choose to have sex (not with every guy who comes along), it’s not because we lack self-respect or are trying to prove our love, it’s because we feel like it. Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Therese Shechter, Director Of “How To Lose Your Virginity”

therese shechter

Maybe you became sexually active a long time ago. Or sex doesn’t really interest you. Or you’ve done a couple sexual activities but are taking it slowly. No matter who you are or where you live, you will have thought about whether or not you are a “virgin” — and what exactly being a “virgin” means.

The 2013 documentary by Therese Shechter (above) called “How To Lose Your Virginity” spans purity balls, school hallways and the porn set of “Barely Legal” to explore our cultural fascination with virginity and the myths that surround it. American society has made it clear that even if we can’t exactly agree on what “virginity” means, we still hold it in reverence, particularly for women. We are, after all, the country that promotes abstinence-only education in far too many classrooms and allows eight-year-old girls to promise their fathers they will remain virgins until marriage. And did you know you could purchase a fake hymen for $30 on the Internet?

Lucky for you, “How To Lose Your Virginity” debuts on Saturday, February 8th at 8 p.m. EST on Fusion (check cable providers here) with other screenings after that. On a recent snowy day, I chatted with Therese over Skype about virginity (obviously), abstinence-only sex education, white panties, and “the magical penis”. Keep reading »

Catarina Migliorini Attempts Second Online Virginity Auction

  • Catarina Migliorini, a Brazilian woman who famously auctioned off her virginity to the highest bidder late last year, has put her V-Card back on the market. Apparently, the first, uh, buyer turned out not to be who he said he was, so the deal/deed was never consummated. Round two! [Huffington Post]
  • Eminem and his ex-wife and baby mama, Kim Mathers, are apparently getting along “better than ever” and may get back together, according to her mom. [Newser]
  • Chris Brown went to rehab for anger management issues and apparently got kicked out of rehab early because of his anger management issues. [Celebuzz]
  • Oooh, who’s the hot dude Britney Spears was caught kissing in the middle of the desert? Cause it ain’t her boyfrend… [Socialite Life] Keep reading »

“Performance Art” Is Now A Gay College Student Having Anal Sex In An Art Gallery

anal sex Clayton Pettet

There’s a stigma around virginity, so gay college student Clayton Pettet, 19, is doing his part by having anal sex inside an art gallery in front of a live audience on January 25th. Pettet’s performance art will be called “Art School Stole My Virginity” and will include first-time butt sex with a friend and then a chat with the gallery patrons about what they thought of the performance. All this will then be graded, presumably, for London’s Central Saint Martin’s art school. Methinks he is totally overestimating his ability to have anal sex to completion on the first try; his “once-in-a-lifetime performance” might need a couple tries.

Well, at least they are having safe sex. Carry on. [Queerty] [Image of monkeys via Shutterstock]

The Soapbox: In Praise Of Premarital Sex

in praise of premarital sex

There’s a lot that I don’t remember from high school. Algebra. Most of the Italian language. But something my high school health teacher said about premarital sex is still embedded in my mind 10 years on.

She said that on our wedding night, when we have sex with our (future) husband or wife, all the other people we’ve slept with would be sleeping alongside us. She meant it figuratively, of course — she was trying to get us to think about promiscuity through the frame of premarital sex being a bad thing. How crowded, she seemed to be asking, did we want our marital bed mattress to be? Keep reading »

This Video Of A 10-Year-Old Girl Making A Virginity Pledge To Her Father On His Deathbed Creeps Me Out

This Makes Me Uncomfortable

I’m just going to say it: a 10-year-old girl making an abstinence pledge to her dying father on his hospital bed is all kinds of emotionally manipulative.

I thought this YouTube video would be a touching, if extremely sad, occasion for Johnny, a gravely ill father, and his 10-year-old daughter, Nakeol. Gathered by family, they shared an approximation of the little girl’s wedding day that Johnny will not live to see; according to the YouTube description of the video, he is suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nakeol felt “sad knowing he would never be there to walk her down the aisle when she gets married one day.” So the family arranged a small ceremony at the father’s hospital bed. Sweet, right? Grab the tissues.

But then it got  uncomfortable on multiple levels. Nakeol’s father didn’t just give her away; the 10-year-old Nakeol promised her dying father in his hospital bed that she will won’t have sex until marriage. Keep reading »

10 Things Everyone Should Learn In Sex Ed

Hold onto your pearls, pearl-clutchers. Oklahoma’s Tulsa School District has just announced plans to implement an unprecedented sex education policy. Cities like Boston,  NYC, San Francisco and Los Angeles are already teaching comprehensive, medically accurate, LGBTQ-inclusive sex education to public school students. One by one, American cities are announcing a move away from abstinence-only curriculum or worse, nothing at all.

Sex education across the world varies so widely that chances are, you’re having sex with someone who received different sex education from you. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all enter (…heh) sexual and romantic relationships confident in each other’s baseline knowledge?

In an ideal world, this is what we’d all learn before we go forth and spread our love. Or seed. Or legs (I’M SORRY). Keep reading »
