What Music Was Playing When You Lost Your V-Card?

The Frisky staff got into a discussion the other day about what kind of music gets us in the mood — we’ll share our list with you a little later — and it prompted me to ask them all the question: What music was playing when you lost your V-card? Wow, I didn’t realize I’d be opening such a can of worms! Check out our (pretty funny) answers after the jump and give us yours in the comments. And sure, you can try to guess which staffer said what, but our lips are remaining sealed! Keep reading »

Girls: Save Your Virginity If You Don’t Have A College Fund

We were aware and appropriately disturbed by the trend of girls auctioning off their virginity to make some extra greenbacks. But after 22-year-old college grad Natalie Dylan sold her unpopped cherry to pay for grad school for a whopping $3.7 million, she changed the virginity game altogether. Her little scheme did not go unnoticed by poor, virginal schoolgirls everywhere. Now a 19-year-old New Zealand virgin, going by the name of “Ungirl,” has followed in Natalie’s footsteps. After receiving 1,200 bids on her purity, she accepted an offer for about $32K, which she says was “way beyond what I dreamed.” Hey, it’s no 3.7 million, but it should cover books. After the jump, some other girls who sold their V-card to pay for school in recent months. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

VH1′s “The New Virginity”: Yet Another Documentary About Virgins

Virginity documentaries: they’re hot right now. A few weeks ago we reported on an upcoming documentary, “How To Lose Your Virginity,” by filmmaker Therese Shechter. But tonight at 11p.m. (EST), VH1 joins in with an episode called “The New Virginity” for VH1 News. The program focuses mostly on the virgins of pop culture — the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Donna Martin on 90210, etc. — and the hypocrisy of their at-times-sexual public persona with their alleged chastity vows. It will also explain creepy practices like abstinence pledges and purity balls to those of us lucky enough not to get roped into them. Plus, Jessica Valenti, author of The Purity Myth: How America’s Obsession With Virginity Is Hurting Young Women and one of the co-founders of Feministing, will be featured as an expert — that’s reason enough to watch!

“How To Lose Your Virginity,” The Documentary

Oooh, cool: filmmaker Therese Shechter is making a documentary about all things virginal, aptly called “How To Lose Your Virginity.” Shechter posted a trailer online and it looks like “How To Lose Your Virginity” covers virginity pledges, the purity ring iPhone app, those creepy “purity balls,” and even Miley Cyrus’ alleged abstinence pledge. Please tell us Kevin Jonas’ glorious princess wedding / inaugural cherry-popping will be featured prominently, too? Keep reading »

Quotable: Jonas Brother Finally Loses Virginity, Is Not Impressed

“To be honest about it, sex was not worth the wait. After we did it, I was kind of like, that’s it?”

– Newlywed Kevin Jonas on finally getting to bump uglies for the first time with his new wife at a press conference [Huffington Post]

UPDATE: Soooo, apparently the dude who wrote about this on HuffPo, Andy Borowitz, is some sort of “comedian” and making up quotes like this is part of his idea of “humor.” The funny thing is I fell for it, because it does not seem so crazy to think a Jonas Brother would find sex to be meh. So, yeah, sorry folks. HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Keep reading »

A Newspaper’s Really Bad Advice For A 35-Year-Old Virgin

I felt really awful for this guy who wrote to Chicago Sun Times columnist Cheryl Lavin looking for help. Basic gist of his letter? He’s a 35-year-old virgin who just wants to “get the monkey off his back.” Fine if it’s a religious or moral choice, but sadly for this dude, it is not. So what did Cheryl suggest for this sexless man?

“I have a feeling your unhappiness over your virginity is inhibiting you with woman. What if you went at it the other way? What if you lost your virginity first, then tried to have a connection with a woman? Your whole personality on a date might blossom. Prostitution is legal in some counties in Nevada. And even where it’s illegal, it’s widespread.”

Dads Are Talking To Their Sons About Balls—Purity Balls, That Is

I’d thought purity balls—dances when tween and teen girls pledge to their fathers that they’ll stay virgins until marriage—were paternalistic and super-creepy for the girls. But, apparently, they are equal-opportunity paternalistic and creepy. The Tennessean interviewed parents Julian and Valerie Head, of Franklin, Tennessee, who are hosting a purity ball at their home for their 9- and 6-year-old sons, where the boys will make a virginity pledge with their dad. Yeah, these poor boys are 9 and 6.

Take It From Him: What Men Think When Losing Their Virginity

Many women aren’t aware that just as there are emotional stages of acceptance of death, there are emotional stages of acceptance of sex. When men lose their virginity, they experience a remarkably similar set of emotions.

Here’s a look at the various stages that men go through when losing their virginity, drawing on my own terribly awkward experience. Keep reading »

Should Pre-Marital Sex Be Encouraged?

Jessica Valenti posed an interesting question over at Feministing this week — should we be encouraging women (and men) to have pre-marital sex? She argues that yes, we should, writing:

“Because, let’s face it — if you’re going to commit yourself to someone for (presumably) the rest of your life, it’s probably best if you know that you’re sexually compatible … Do I think that people can have perfectly wonderful satisfying relationships without having had sex before making a commitment? Sure, I’m positive that happens often. But considering what a huge role sexuality plays in our lives and relationships … well, I’d rather be super duper positive.”

Tina Fey, The 24-Year-Old Virgin

Tina Fey, poster child for the abstinence movement? Naaaah. She was just homely, the 30 Rock star told David Letterman last night. (Sorry, Sarah Palin.)

Even though Tina held onto her V-card until the ripe old age of 24, this story’s got a sweet ending! The fabulous Ms. Fey ended up having her daughter with the guy who took her virginity: her husband. How old-fashioned! Keep reading »
