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.
