The Virgin Diaries by Kimberley A. Johnson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Well, this book is very different from anything that I've ever read so this review will be a little different.
I found this book to be very informative about losing your Virginity. With that said I'm going to explain what is was about and what I got from it. When I first started reading this book I honestly didn't know what to think about it. Growing up in a home where my Mom never talked about sex, I really have never had any advice about it. I myself was a big flirt in middle school, and for Sex Ed they gave us condoms. My Mom found these condoms and instantly assumed that I had sex, I told her I hadn't but she didn't believe me so I was just like whatever.
I really liked hearing about everyone's personal experiences with sex, and how it turned out for them. This book includes encounters from men and women who are straight, gay, lesbian, and bisexual. This book made me realize that many times teenagers are in too much of a hurry to have sex, and many times in this book (not all times) wish they would've waited.
I would recommend this book to "parents" first, because I think it would allow them to see that if they are open and talk to their children about sex it won't be such a mystery to them. After the parent reads this book I think that it should be their choice to decide whether their teenager should read this book or not. For me personally I think that more parents need to be open about this subject, I mean sex is literally everywhere around us but no one is "willing" to talk about it. This book taught me a lot, and although this isn't really my type of book I found it to be very informative on the subject of Virginity.
I think that if parents were to read this book they would realize that many teens or people in general have sex because they are curious to find out what it is all about. Maybe by reading this book they would be able to talk to their teens about sex, be more open about it, and teens probably wouldn't be "as" curious.
Thanks Kimberley for asking me to read The Virgin Diaries.
