Film Screening: How to Lose Your Virginity

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at the UC Retama Auditorium 7:00 to 9:00 pm

UTSA Student Health Services, Women's Resource Center, and UTSA Libraries are hosting a screening of How to Lose Your Virginity!

It is a cornerstone of Christian mythology, has launched both purity balls and porn franchises, defines a young woman’s morality–but has no medical definition. Enter the magical world of virginity, where a white wedding dress can restore a woman’s innocence and replacement hymens can be purchased online.

Filmmaker Therese Shechter uses her own path out of virginity to explore why our sex-crazed society cherishes this so-called precious gift. Along the way, we meet sex educators, virginity auctioneers, abstinence advocates, and young men and women who bare their tales of doing it—or not doing it. How to Lose Your Virginity uncovers the myths and misogyny surrounding a rite of passage that many obsesses about but few truly understand.

Following the screening, we will facilitate a quick educational component and discussion of virginity. So bring your friends and get ready to talk about the taboo!
