OK it's not me whose obsessed with virgins, it's Channel 4! I just report the facts. Apparently 96% of people have lost their virginity before 25. I'm suprised it's that high, I really don't think everyone's doing it. Probably some virgins are lying.
This programme was very sad. It followed three virgins, the first was 49, and he got glandular fever from the first girl he ever snogged which paralysed him! WTF? So now he spent his time inviting glamour models to his flat and taking pictures of them for an hour. What right-minded woman would go to a strange mans flat and let him take their picture? You're asking for your head to be cut off. As it was, they were safe with this guy, because he was extremely strange, but a virgin. It was very sad the way all he really wanted was to hug someone. How awful to go for years on end without a hug. I can't even imagine it. He did lose it in the end. To a hooker.
The second guy was 29, had kind of a strange head and made model rockets at the weekend. He wasn't so ugly he could never have sex. I felt ever so sorry for him when he said 'I've tried different friends, different venues, different clothing styles...' Different clothing styles! Like what? Golf wear? Nu Rave? Clothes maketh the man! You can't change your style willy nilly. This is where you're going wrong, mate. Awwww. There must be someone out there to love him. He also had THE Ikea lamp! Of course he did! Get a new lamp, geezer! Didn't think of that, did you? PS. The pictures of jets on your bedroom wall don't exactly scream shag-pad. He didn't lose it. His foreskin was too tight so he had to go to hospital.
The third virgin was a 43 year old woman and was a virgin because of religious reasons but decided she'd had enough of shagging God. And why not? He can be selfish in bed. Instead she decided to sleep with a Chippendale-esque escort. How could she face it? I'd feel like Jabba the Hutt next to him and I'm young (ish). Anyway. She lost it. To a hooker.
It's a shame that the solution to these people's problems seemed to be to pay someone to fuck them. Living without love is worse than living without sex and I felt sad that they'd never experienced that.
In conclusion: have these people never heard of the internet? ANYONE can get laid these days and I mean ANYONE, tonight if they wanted. For free.
