Product description


'A mass observation project for the internet generation.' -- Cosmo Landesman, Sunday Times 'Britain's virginity is explored in breathtakingly intimate detail but also with incredible tact and diplomacy.' -- Meredith Jaffe, Hoopla 'A revealing insight into modern sexuality.' -- Tatler 'The book is incredibly rich in its insights and observations on human sexuality and the recognition of how we become sexual ... masterful, lovely, and absolutely thrilling.' -- Bookish Owl 'Monro's book is clearly one of the best volumes written to date on virginity and how precisely we define virginity (and, of course, its loss)...A masterful, lovely, and absolutely thrilling book.' -- Jonathan A. Allen, Teach Me Tonight 'An often-touching insight into one of the most intimate and rarely discussed events in a human being's life.' -- Irish Independent
