A Kickstarter Campaign for “How to Lose Your Virginity”

Virginity sure does get a lot of attention. Whether we’re talking about purity balls, abstinence only education, or the idea that non-intercourse sex is a gateway to sin, a lot of people get very worked up over whether people are virgins or not.

That makes our relationship to virginity really complex. Folks have all sorts of different ideas about what it means, what importance to place on it, and what place it has in their lives. I recently met Therese Shechter, a filmmaker who’s working on How to Lose Your Virginity, a documentary about this rather tricky experience.

She’s started a kickstarter campaign to fund the film, and I think this is one worth supporting. I was thrilled to be interviewed for the film when Therese and I met at Momentum and I’m looking forward to seeing how this project develops. You can see a preview of it on the kickstarter page, and the film’s website has a wonderful blog where you can submit your thoughts and stories about virginity.

Check it out and if you can, send her some support. This is a topic that’s really worth exploring and I think this film will do a great job of it.
