The Virgin Diaries on MTV
When I was a teenager, l convinced myself that I would only give up my virginity if my then boyfriend lavished me with Belgian chocolates, Ingueza roses, Krug champagne, a sexy babydoll from Agent Provocateur and an expensive weekend away. Hell, I would have even settled for a single bed in the local Travelodge; anything would of been better than 10 seconds of painful thrusting under a soggy tree in a graveyard on a miserable October night. Still, I'd take that over the new phenomenon that has been whipping thousands of frustrated American teens into a frenzy...
As if it's not (physically) painful enough to pop your cherry in the first place, young adults in the States have been clambering over one another to take part in MTV's latest real life documentary: Virgin Diaries.
For three intriguing and perhaps excruciating months, MTV has filmed 10 young adults as they prepare to lose their virginity and 'deal with the consequences.' The show is set to air every Sunday at 9pm, starting on 27 August as part of the MTV Sex Season.
If trembling virgins getting it on sounds like your idea of hell, check out the frank and hilarious Sex: The Dirty Dozen, which apparently tackles sexually related taboos and features real-life diaries alongside interviews with celebs such as Pink, Artic Monkeys and ex-Busted star Matt Willis, along with the obligatory sexperts and a host of big-breasted glamour girls.
