Thank You, MTV For Axing Absurd Reality Show, “My First” On Virginity Loss
1:30 pm, May 21st | by Laura Donovan
The same channel that destroyed many people’s faith in humanity with “The Jersey Shore” almost put out an equally appalling reality program about folks who want to document the loss of their virginity. Though the project, which was criticized by some, has reportedly been called off, the casting call for the venture was one of the creepiest ads we’ve ever seen.
“Do you want to take things to the next level? Like, are you ready to hand over your V card? Or do you have a friend who is ready to lose it? Young adulthood is a time for exploration. New relationships, fresh experiences and sexual firsts,” reads the casting notice, which went live on May 8 and is now disabled. “Now MTV is looking to frankly capture that journey in a new series called My First. We’re looking for adults who are ready to go all the way. Let MTV come along on your journey… as you try to lose your virginity!”
The best part of the ad, which is only intended for people 18 and up, is that it assures potential applicants that they will make the show whether or not they “accomplish this goal,” which is of course to lose one’s virginity. Even though cast members would have to share details on the quest to cash in their v-cards, the network promised not to “film the act itself. Duh.” How considerate.
Even though it doesn’t look like the show is going to happen, there’s plenty of entertainment about virginity loss available at your fingertips. Stick with instant classic, “American Pie.”
