(Oct. 15, 2013) -- UTSA Student Health Services, Women's Resource Center and UTSA Libraries will host a screening of "How to Lose Your Virginity" at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the University Center Retama Auditorium (2.02.02) on the Main Campus. Join us for the documentary screening and real talk exploring 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 obsess about but few truly understand.
Following the screening, there will be a brief educational component and discussion of virginity. So, bring your friends and get ready to talk about the taboo.
