Okay, I admit it… I didn’t do i.
This is normal right? I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…..right?
It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.
The guys I know complain that the girls are always looking for Mr. Right – do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right now?
Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?
I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another i am going to make this happen.
Hey, what have I got to loose? Besides the obvious.
At first I wasn’t sure what to make of this book. I was worried this was going to just be another NA novel where the perfect and beautiful but doesn’t know she’s beautiful heroine is oblivious to the hundreds of men that want her and she decides on a whim to succumb to her so-called friends pressuring her to just do it already. Virgin was not like that. It really was something special. I’m just blown away. Sanghani is on my radar now.
Virgin is great. Well written, funny, and very relevant to our time. Even thought the protagonist is a virgin she is frank about her body, and sex. I really appreciated how detailed she was in all the many adventures she had with four play, masturbation, body hair, and all the things we rarely see young women deal with in an honest, authentic way.
Ellie is a twenty-one year old virgin who shares her story of attempts to have her deflowered with the aid of her partner-in-crime friend Lara. Lara helps Ellie find a suitable men for the mission at hand until a disagreement between them causes Ellie and Lara to leave and go their separate ways.
Ellie embarks on several adventures with the opposite sex to speed up the process of becoming a non-virgin to no avail. Ellie learns the proper rules of kissing, foreplay, and describes in length different ways she masturbates to recognize an orgasm when the big day happens. In addition, Ellie starts a ‘VLOG’ that is strictly dedicated to everything ‘vagina’ including the inner and outer workings of this special place on a woman’s body. Ellie is determined in losing her virginity before becoming an old woman and willing to do almost anything to get that accomplished.
Overall, I really enjoyed this novel, and hope to read more from this author. I highly recommend this novel!
