TLC special explores what it's like to be a virgin

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.

    I believe the correct term for "reclaimed virgin" is "celibate."

    Dear Lord.......this society's nosedive into the abyss just accelerated. The next scripted, fake, over-produced piece of televised trash from this network. What does TLC stand for, The Learning Channel? I forget. Should be more like "Total Loser Collection".

    Reclaimed virgin?! That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! Once you give it up, you can't get it back.

    Wow. =/ That was the WORST kiss I have EVER witnessed. Poor guy really should have taken lessons beforehand...or at least practiced on his hand! Blech.

      I imagine that kiss was designed and scripted just that way, so it generated some reaction. If it was the same 'ol kiss we all have, then they couldn't make a show out of it. Utterly pathetic trash.

    yeah, lol, that kiss was kinda laughable, but, really... most of us got our first kisses when we were teenagers.... i'm sure that was sorta what we all looked like.

    congrats and best of luck to the newlyweds. 🙂

    "Reclaimed virginity"? Sounds like something a 5lut would come up with to make herself feel better about all the poles she's already smoked.

    That guy in the clip looked like he was eating her face. Practice might have been a good idea in this case.
