Whether stud or dud, hot dish or cold fish, you're never the same after you first “do the deed.” But how wild, weird, or earth shattering was it for your neighbor, the person next to you on the bus, or your veterinarian? In How to Lose Your Virginity… and How Not To, compiled from 1,000 face-to-face interviews across North America, Shawn Wickens makes us transfixed voyeurs in scores of others' seminal “coming” of age moments. From Kelsie Testa in Jerk Magazine: "A compilation of shocking yet heartwarming tales of orifices, secretions, and vulgarity that pleasantly ends in an orgasm. From condom follies to mixed-race orgies, Wickens proves that no formula exists when it comes to this seminal and 'ground-breaking' event…. One central message remains the same for all of these first-timers: losing your virginity is weird and exhilarating, whether you lost it with your middle-school bus driver named Frank at age 13 or you waited until marriage." Featured in the New York Daily News, The Huffington Post and Jezebel.com. Breakthru Radio calls How to Lose Your Virginity, "...an entertaining and enlightening read for virgins and non-virgins alike." A portion of the proceeds is donated to RAINN (Rape and Incest National Network)

"Impressionistic and engaging ... Fankhauser boldly offers new wisdom." - Bromleigh McCleneghan, pastor and author of Good Christian Sex --- On the 8th day, God created sexual intercourse. And it was good. But for girls like Dani Fankhauser who were told sex was only to happen once you cross the threshold of marriage, that "goodness" seemed...questionable. As young women, we learned how to say "No" to sex, but not how to ask a guy to put on a condom. We were told to limit physical affection because it undermined love, but not how to deal with our own desires and drive. Our own bodies, and their capacity for pleasure, were left a mystery. In SHAMELESS, Fankhauser writes about the questions she had that couldn't be answered by mainstream culture or by Christian communities - about shame, love, intimacy, and STDs.

The brothers of Beta Theta Pi are have just finished a banquet in honour of their graduating, cigars have been lit, and many drinks will be drunk. All is about to proceed to its inevitable state of mass inebriation when one of the brothers suddenly divulges to the group that one amongst them is in fact a virgin. When the President rises and insists that the identity of this puritan be revealed, an accusatory finger is cast on the slowly reddening face of Frank Eaton. At once, it is decided that he shall have his cherry well and truly plucked there and the eyes of the whole society. Cue Vic and Ida, the naughtiest girls in town. What follows is a ribald recital of the most lascivious kind, and Frank won't be the only one to savour the charms of the evening's entertainment. Between copious amounts of fornicating, frigging, and numerous spendings, each society member will reveal in sumptuously graphic detail how he lost his virginity. This little seen gem of Victorian era erotica is one of the precious few from the stable of Charles Carrington that is set in America. Anonymously written in 1897, 'Maidenhead Stories' bounds along at a stimulating pace, tale after tale regaled in with fond reminiscent and celebrated with a heart cheer. A must for any collector of the once-suppressed.
Virginity Lost, Sensuality Found
Author: William Shakespeare,John Payne Collier
Virginity is of concern here, that is its utter messiness. At once valuable and detrimental, normative and deviant, undesirable and enviable. Virginity and its loss hold tremendous cultural significance. For many, female virginity is still a universally accepted condition, something that is somehow bound to the hymen, whereas male virginity is almost as elusive as the G-spot: we know it's there, it’s just we have a harder time finding it. Of course boys are virgins, queers are virgins, some people reclaim their virginities, and others reject virginity from the get go. So what if we agree to forget the hymen all together? Might we start to see the instability of terms like untouched, pure, or innocent? Might we question the act of sex, the very notion of relational sexuality? After all, for many people it is the sexual acts they don’t do, or don’t want to do, that carry the most abundant emotional clout. Virgin Envy is a collection of essays that look past the vestal virgins and beyond Joan of Arc. From medieval to present-day literature, the output of HBO, Bollywood, and the films of Abdellah Taïa or Derek Jarman to the virginity testing of politically active women in Tahrir Square, the writers here explore the concept of virginity in today’s world to show that ultimately virginity is a site around which our most basic beliefs about sexuality are confronted, and from which we can come to understand some of our most basic anxieties, paranoias, fears, and desires.

Sexual beliefs, behaviors and identities are interwoven throughout our lives, from childhood to old age. An edited collection of original empirical contributions united through its use of a distinctive, cutting-edge theoretical framework, Sex for Life critically examines sexuality across the entire lifespan. Rooted in diverse disciplines and employing a wide range of research methods, the chapters explore the sexual and social transitions that typically map to broad life stages, as well as key age-graded physiological transitions, such as puberty and menopause, while drawing on the latest developments in gender, sexuality, and life course studies. Sex for Life explores a wide variety of topics, including puberty, sexual initiation, coming out, sexual assault, marriage/life partnering, disability onset, immigration, divorce, menopause, and widowhood, always attending to the social locations – including gender, race, ethnicity, and social class – that shape, and are shaped by, sexuality. The empirical work collected in Sex for Life ultimately speaks to important public policy issues, such as sex education, aging societies, and the increasing politicization of scientific research. Accessibly written, the contributions capture the interplay between individual lives and the ever-changing social-historical context, facilitating new insight not only into people’s sexual lives, but also into ways of studying them, ultimately providing a fresh, new perspective on sexuality.

Selama membangun Virgin Group selama 40 tahun, Richard Branson tak pernah mundur dari tantangan-tantangan yang tampaknya aneh. Ia telah bertarung dengan raksasa bisnis seperti British Airways dan menang. Ia juga pernah menghadapi Coca-Cola ... dan kalah. Branson menceritakan gaya kepemimpinannya yang unik dan menarik dalam buku ini. Pelajarilah bagaimana kesenangan, keluarga, hasrat, dan seni mendengarkan menjadi komponen kunci kesuksesan perusahaan-perusahaan Branson-atau, seperti yang biasa diistilahkan oleh para pegawainya (sambil mengedipkan mata): the Virgin Way. Gaya Virgin. Perspektif unik ini datang dari orang yang meninggalkan sekolah pada usia enam belas tahun, pernah mengidap dyslexia (ketidakmampuan membaca dan belajar), dan tak pernah bekerja pada siapa pun. Branson mungkin terkenal karena sering berpikir "di luar kotak"-sebuah istilah yang tak disukainya, namun ia menegaskan bahwa, "Kau tak perlu berpikir di luar kotak jika kau tak membiarkan siapa pun membangun kotak itu itu di sekitarmu." The Virgin Way bukan buku biasa tentang kepemimpinan. Buku ini ditulis oleh orang yang seumur hidupnya tak pernah membaca buku tentang kepemimpinan. Bersiaplah untuk terkaget-kaget.

The Virginity Myth
Author: Louis M. Crosier
Publisher: Avocus Pub
Category: Health & Fitness
This book challenges the belief that female virginity can be reliably and unambiguously defined, tested and verified. Kelly analyses a variety of medieval Western European texts - including medical treatises and their Classical antecedents - and historical and legal documents. The main focus is the representation of both male and female virgins in saints' legends and romances. The author also makes a comparative study of examples from contemporary fiction, television and film in which testing virginity is a theme. Performing Virginity and Testing Chastity in the Middle Ages presents a compelling and provocative study of the parodox of bodily and spiritual integrity as both presence and absence.
