WHAT EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE FILM:
“This film is an engaging, entertaining documentary about the conflicting meanings of female virginity and sexuality in North American culture. My students loved every minute of it.”
–Elizabeth A. Kissling, Ph.D, Professor, Eastern Washington University
“Her perspective gave a depth to the conversation that I never would have been able to provide on my own. The film was a great way to jump start a discussion and get students engaged in all the reasons this word is difficult to define.”
–Bronwen Pardes, M.A., Instructor of Human Sexuality, LaGuardia Community College
“Therese helped us all dispel these notions and challenged us to think about our own beliefs in an interesting and inclusive way. This is especially important in an environment where someone’s value is often based subjective ideals like purity and virginity. ”
–Brian Ventura, Harvard Sex Week
“I loved that [the film] didn’t take a specific viewpoint and exploit the other like so many documentaries usually do, and I loved that she interviewed so many different types of women with such different personalities and views on sex.”
-Student, Eastern Washington University
