It really was informative.

"The Virgin Diaries" is a realistic, embellished book about first time sexual encounters.

Format: Paperback
I recently bought a copy of The Virgin Diaries for a number of
reasons:
First, the name made me curious enough to read the blurb about it
at Amazon. Reading that made me recall my dad having to go out
and get ever-so-slightly oiled at the local pub to tell me about
the "birds and the bees" when I was sixteen- long after the horse
had vacated the barn- to mix a metaphor.

By then I not only knew all about the theory and the mechanics- I
had aspirations. The trouble was, I had nothing else to go on; no
experience, and nobody I trusted to tell the truth without
embellishments or fabrications. There was nobody in my circle
more knowledgeable than me that I felt sufficiently comfortable
asking. It is hard for a guy to admit sexual ignorance to his
peers. (and I couldn't go out and get "oiled up" and ask my dad).

Today I find I am standing my dad's shoes,though my kids are
several years younger than I was back then. I feel that they are
about in the same position that I was when I was sixteen- though
please God- they will wait a bit longer to actually have sex. So
I bought the book basically as a prospective teaching aid. I
figured that it would be worth it to save a little of everyone''s
dignity and two tender young egos.

I am happy I did. Though it isn't perfect, it is a hell of a lot
better than I would have done on my own. It is truthful and
unvarnished without being coarse and brutal or clinical. And, it
isn't so lofty and high minded that it sounds like propaganda.
When you read the accounts you realize that they are not there
because the subjects have agendas that they are promoting.

What makes this book particularly interesting is the fact that anonymity allows the male contributors to unselfconsciously share their true feelings about how, when, and to whom they chose to lose their virginity.

If the stories in this book are any indication, there is a decent percentage of men who are in touch with their own feelings and genuinely care about the feelings of their partner as well. In this sense, the stories were not at all what I expected and a truly welcome surprise. A great read people of almost all ages.

This review is going to be a little different because this is a book so unlike anything else that I have ever read before. My blog is a Young Adult book blog. Every now and then I may stumble into the "adult" world with an Adult/Young Adult crossover book but that doesn't occur often. Something that happens even less often than that would be me testing the waters of educational books. I read the required material for my classes but I hardly go out looking for educational books for fun. However, when a review request came along for this book, I instantly said yes. This book is the real life, true accounts of many people's first time experience with sex. If TV and media teaches us anything, it is that sex is a wonderful, passionate, experience that is highly enjoyable for both partners ESPECIALLY if it is their first time ever doing it. *Laughs at the craziness of that whole last statement* This book breaks through the image that Hollywood has imprinted in the minds of today's teenagers. This book allows us to feel and understand exactly what people went through during their first sexual encounter. Now before you all get embarrassed (for yourself or for me) please let me explain that this book is in no way pornographic and it stays relatively clean considering the subject matter. The people who volunteered their stories were asked a series of questions. "What age were you during your first encounter?", "Did you have any advice from parental or religious figures?", and "Is there any advice you would give to virgins?"were a few of the many wonderful questions that were asked. Their answers to these questions were compiled and edited to create The Virgin Diaries.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
There are lots of books out there ready to "preach" about sex, teen sex, and losing it. "The Virgin Diaries" , much like a good parent, listens and in listening and documenting (the stories of real people losing their virginity), "Diaries" gives us something that is a geniune slice of life and growing up in America. Much like life, the stories are alternately funny, sweet, moving and sometimes a little ..cold and wet on the rear end. In the end, the book is a time capsule of one the signature moments in the lives of some pretty interesting people (author Kimberly Johnson chose her interviewees from all walks off life - young, old, straight and gay and I'm pretty sure that would cover everyone). There's wisdom aplenty, and maybe it's just me, but the biggest takeaway I got from "The Virgin Diaries" is the realization that once each one of us was young (or not so young), beautiful, romantic, daring, or shocking for at least one night in our lives. All of us on Earth either have a memory or WANT one. The Virgin Diaries is a document of that common bond.
