There’ve been teen moms. There’ve been “guidos.” There’ve been rednecks. The next cultural subgroup to get the MTV reality show treatment are a little more, well, innocent: virgins. The hour-long “docu-soap” will follow a group of 18- to 25-year-olds who are remaining abstinent. Some will undoubtedly be tempted and struggling with their abstinence, while I imagine others will give voice to a segment of the population — young, cool and not having sex — who aren’t often portrayed on MTV.

Seeking a soulmate for your child doesn’t just happen in the movies, y’all! Like the scene in “Because I Said So,” where the mother posts an ad online secretly seeking a male partner for her daughter, a Philadelphian mom has taken notes and brought the helicopter mom to the next level. Looking for a “Sugar Baby for [her] Son,” this mom asks for a 19-year-old or younger to swipe her son’s V-Card before he heads to Harvard. Keep reading »
The woman who became an Internet sensation by auctioning off her virginity for $780,000 now says that she was tricked and exploited — and that she’s still a virgin.
Catarina Migliorini, a 21-year-old woman from Brazil, told The Huffington Post by email that the highly publicized Internet auction last October, organized by filmmaker Justin Sisely, has turned into a giant fiasco.
“I felt I was a victim … I was misled by Mr. Justin Sisely,” Migliorini said. “I believe he is trying to defraud me and others.” Read more on Huffington Post…
Former MTV VJ Kennedy (you probably remember her if you were a loyal “Alternative Nation” watcher as I was) makes some outrageous claims in her new memoir, The Kennedy Chronicles.
In a chapter titled “MJ and the VJ” Kennedy recounts a game of dice back in 1995, when she was still a virgin. In the book, she writes about a dinner with Michael Jordan and Russell Simmons at the Bowery Bar. Allegedly, the basketball star broke out some dice and suggested they “play for something,” saying, “If I win, you come back to my hotel room with me tonight.” Kennedy flipped out worrying that Jordan’s potentially large dick might “eviscerate [her] from the inside out” (a valid concern when your hymen is still intact).

Me: I’m sorry! It’s just not going in!
Him: Don’t worry – we can always try later…
Me: I’m really sorry! I’m just so scared! (Sobbing. Tearful search for bra.) What if this never works?
That was me and my now-fiancé during one of many abortive attempts to have sex for the first time.
For years, I viewed sex as something like the Ark of the Covenant in “Indiana Jones”: immensely powerful and great beyond belief, but if you tried to use it in an unrighteous way the wrath of God would melt your face off.
I grew up in a church which, like many churches, taught us that sex before marriage was Wrong with a capital W. To their credit, they also taught us that sex within marriage was brilliant, but still. This was a church where one of the pastors hadn’t even kissed his wife until their wedding day. We also learned that in courting situations (we were discouraged from the secular institution of dating; “courting” was the spiritually safe alternative) girls should also dress modestly because men’s thoughts so easily fall into temptation. Although a heated moment could seduce us into wanting sex ourselves, the message was that boys wanted sex and girls shouldn’t give it to them until the wedding night. A quick scan through my own experience, however – especially late at night – would have revealed that girls could feel the pull of temptation just as much as boys.The nature of that temptation was never really discussed. The few teenagers in the church were too embarrassed to ask about it; I know I was. It also didn’t help that this was a church full of middle-aged and elderly Asian people who did not talk about sex.

While a slew of young women (and one sex doll) are eager to auction off their virginities to the highest bidder, there are others who are holding on to their V-cards for dear life. Some even into their golden years and beyond. We honor them, these chaste few who are (mostly) proud to call themselves the world’s oldest virgins.
