at thong.com has taken up so much Of Stacy Temple's life that she
is on the brink of being a re-virgin. According to an on-line writer,
Gigi XXX, if a woman is celibate for one year, besides being crazy,
then that person regains their virgin status. Stacy is mortified
to find out that she has let herself become sexless and plans to
immediately rectify this situation. As she mentally flips through
all the men in her life, Stacy isn't thrilled with what she finds
but gives it a go anyway. It was bad enough losing her virginity
the first time; she doesn't want to have to go through it again.
For the next week, Stacy suffers through many unsuccessful and humiliating
experiences - and all this while trying to keep her unstable job.
The Accidental Virgin evoked
many reactions from me. At first, I thought the premise was cute
but as I got deeper into the book, I was shocked at the cavalier
way Stacy approached sex. There was never any mention of protection,
which just comes across, as dangerous and highly unrealistic. Towards
the end, when Stacy started to calm down a little bit, was when
I began to enjoy the book again. The ending had a great twist that
redeemed the story for me.
