Sex Jane Magazine Pimps Desperate Virgin
According to the cover text, Sarah is a “funny, gorgeous” 29-year-old who “wants to lose her virginity by her 30th birthday in November.” That gives the guys just two months to sweep Sarah off her (literal and metaphorical) feet.
A few observations:
1. Eww. Has the post-feminist pendulum swung clear around, to the point that it’s OK to whore yourself out via national fashion mag as long as you’re “sex-positive” about it?
2. I have some doubts about Sarah’s “prospects.” (Their answers to Jane’s “interview” questions are pretty laughable, although I wouldn’t have much to say to questions like “What are [sic] your favorite pair of shoes?” and “What’s your favorite food and why?” either). Jane calls them “pure eye candy.” Judge for yourself.
Would you choose:
Daniel, who describes himself as “fucking brilliant” in bed and says he “would want to be closer to Sarah than I was to the woman who deflowered me”?
David, who says he’d offer Sarah “candles and bubble bath” for her first time (sounds hazardous!) and whose favorite books are “sci-fi and computer books”?
Mike, who says he’d “prepare a comfortable room” for Sarah’s “deflowering”, and “light candles, burn incense, soft lights, and sink into the aura of love”?
Or Adam, a trainer and raw-foodist who claims to “care more about Sarah than just getting laid”?
In case you’re feeling too sorry for Sarah after viewing her “prospects,” I invite you read this excerpt from her blog, updated daily on Jane’s web site:
Hey everyone! So let me just get you up to date on what’s been happening. I have a date tonight with this guy, and I kid you not, his name is Lucky! Talk about fortuitous!!! What a great way to start my little project off! So I will dish all about my “Lucky” date in my blog to be posted tomorrow morning. I also have ANOTHER date on Thursday and again I will give you all the detes in Friday’s blogs. So check in. Also, feel free to ask me any questions or make any comments in the forum. I picked Jane magazine because of it’s readers and content, so anything you can contribute would be sooooo greatly appreciated!!! I am a bit nervous about tonight’s date as I haven’t been on a date “date” in almost a year! I will also be taking some pics of my adventures so check back for those highlights! Alright, I have my favorite white jeans, a funky tank top, and gold espadrilles at the ready! I am sooooo ready for my “Lucky” adventure!
Hmm. Do you think the reason Sarah hasn’t “been on a date ‘date’” in a year might because, emotionally, she’s still 13?
And also, isn’t Jane supposed to be the “thinking” twentysomething woman’s magazine? If so: No longer.
