In what sort of sounds like the reality show version of "The 40 Year Old Virgin," TLC's new special explores what it's like to be an adult who's never done the deed.
Called "Virgin Diaries," the hour-long special focuses on six adults who happen to still be virgins, whether it's "by choice or by chance," the network says in a statement.
The special aims to depict "the truths, anticipations, and very awkward moments that go along with trying to have sex for the very first time," the statement says.
We'll get to meet Carey, a professionally successful 35-year-old who's never had a girlfriend...which could be because he's never made it past a first date, TLC tells us. The network also notes that his last kiss was two years ago.
Also featured are three 30-year-old female friends who are on the hunt for their "Mr. Rights." One of the trio, though, is a reclaimed virgin, as she was previously sexually active before deciding to save sex for marriage.
And lastly, there's Ryan, 31, and Shanna, 27, who decided to wait until marriage for sex because of their religion. During their six-month courtship, they only hugged, held hands and shared a few pecks on the cheek - Ryan hadn't kissed a woman on the lips before, and wanted to save their first kiss for their wedding day...which you can see in the clip below:
"Virgin Diaries" airs Sunday, December 4 at 9 p.m. on TLC.
