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.

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.

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.

How To Lose Your Virginity is the new documentary by Therese Shechter, director of the award-winning and provocative I Was A Teenage Feminist.
