The screening was an engaging event; the crowd was laughing and gasping throughout. Students loved hearing from an artist who understands the power of being an image-maker and uses that power to bring insight to significant social issues.

access almost 400 first-person stories from the Interactive v-card diaries project

The V-Card Diaries is a crowd-sourced interactive story-sharing site where everyone can anonymously access and share stories about becoming sexual. The site was inspired by the many first-person stories we received from people who have seen our documentary How To Lose Your Virginity or follow the blog.

Join us in telling a collective story about becoming sexual–and the radical act of speaking honestly about it. This project was on exhibit at The Kinsey Institute and has been used as ethnographic data in college Human Sexuality courses.

A very open and intelligent film...approaches the difficult subject with warmth and humor. I recommend it for anyone who desires a serious, grown-up, critical overview of the issue of sex and virginity in contemporary America.
