Casting Call for Virgins. I'm Not Kidding.

So I just received an email from a casting agency looking for virgins for a new documentary for MTV.

At first I thought it was a scam. I mean... really? MTV is interested in the lives of virgins?

So I googled the domain of the dude's email address. 

I have two thoughts in regards to this.

1) I like that virginity is being discussed more often in pop culture, especially outside of Purity Culture and outside of the "desperate to lose it" genre.

2) Do I think MTV will manage to pull off a documentary that doesn't exploit its participants?


Reality TV isn't real. A documentary like this will probably not be all that sensitive. 

But the decision to participate or not isn't up to me. 

It's up to you. You being a virgin who meets the show's requirements.

So I've copied and pasted the relevant info below, just in case you want to be the next Reality TV Star.

No judging here. I would totally win Big Brother if I got on that show.

Also let's not forget that Beau and I are already in an awesome documentary on virginity, How to Lose Your Virginity


Are you a VIRGIN?

For the first time, a completely honest show… about being a virgin.

MTV is now casting individuals who have not had sex – either by choice or circumstance - in a documentary-style show that will follow you on your experiences and life as a virgin.

We’re looking outgoing, expressive and passionate young adults who appear to be between the ages of 18-24 from all over to document the pressures, struggles, and benefits of being a virgin in America today.

Whether you plan to remain a virgin until marriage, or are just waiting for the right person; whether you’re motivated by a personal or religious commitment to purity, or you’re comfortable with some sexuality... but haven’t gone all the way; whether you feel pressure to keep your virginity, or to lose it as fast as possible – we want to hear from you.

If you’re a virgin and feel like your story MUST be told, we want to hear from you ASAP!

To submit, please provide the following to


- Name & Age (Participants must be 18 years of age.)

- Contact Number(s)

- E-mail Address & Facebook

- Attach two RECENT photos of yourself.

- Briefly tell us about your day-to-day life and your story as a virgin.


  1. wow, just wow. Hope you get on.

    1. Oh, I'm definitely not auditioning. I've already been featured in one documentary on virginity. That's enough for me!

  2. yikes. I just don't trust how they might edit the participants, you know?

    1. In a really awkward, embarrassing way, I'm sure.

  3. I'm not that surprised by this, especially since I'm pretty sure they've done true life episodes on virgins before. I'm not sure I'd watch now, but would have been all about it back in college.

    1. There have definitely already been some awkward and exploitative shows on virgins. I'm guessing this will be the same.
