what if all we had to lose were our virginity myths?
What has launched both purity balls and porn franchises, defines a young woman’s morality–but has no medical definition? Enter the magical world of virginity, where a white wedding dress can restore a woman’s innocence and replacement hymens can be purchased online.
How To Lose Your Virginity exposes the myths and misogyny surrounding a rite of passage that many obsesses about but few truly understand. Entertaining, eye-opening and thought-provoking, the film is the perfect tool to ignite conversations around sexuality in your communities.
Filmmaker Therese Shechter uses her own path out of virginity to explore why our sex-crazed society cherishes this so-called precious gift. Along the way, we meet a diverse group of sex educators, virginity auctioneers, abstinence advocates, and young men and women who bare their tales of doing it—or not doing it.
