Have you guys heard about the new TLC special The Virgin Diaries? The show, premiering Sunday, follows a group of adult virgins and offers a peek inside their lives, including the challenges and anticipations associated with losing their virginity.
“Losing one’s virginity is a big life decision. A lot of stories about later in life virgins talk about it like a problem,” TLC’s west coast vice president of production, Timothy Kuryak, told ABCNews.com. “We want to show that this is something that can be celebrated.”
And yet, I can’t help but feel like this show just screams exploitation, even just by looking at the trailer. I’m interested to see how they handle this topic, so expect a post or two next week on that very taboo topic of virginity.
In the meantime, what about you, friends? Will you be watching? Does the show sound like one giant exploitation to you? xoxo
