8 p.m. Sunday
What is it with folks taking virginity to extremes? I’m not talking about “I’m 17 and I’ve never gone all the way with a boy.” I’m talking: “I’m 32 and have been engaged for three years, but I’m saving not only my naughty bits but my first kiss for my wedding night.” First of all, let me just say that I’d like somebody to show me where the Bible says you can’t even kiss before marriage. Second: while I personally think the whole virgin-until-your-wedding-night thing sounds like a great recipe for misery — buy a car without a test drive or two, and you probably deserve to get a lemon — I’m cool with it. Your body, your rules has to apply to all, even those who want their honeymoon to be filled with the most awkward and unfulfilling sex imaginable. That said, I never ever want to be in a room with somebody who wants to gush to me how dreamy it will be to lock lips for the first time AFTER the only way out is to hire a lawyer. Luckily, TLC has a plan to keep me far away from those with minty-fresh genitalia with their new show, “Virgin Diaries.” Here, young couples and singles who have chosen to keep themselves pure until marriage talk about navigating the treacherous waters of Blue Ball Lagoon with Jesus as their silent wingman. Sounds like it’ll be fun for an episode or two, and maybe longer if some of them have a horizontal failure of willpower.
