Therese Shechter's new documentary How to Lose Your Virginity is a breath of fresh, comedic air when it comes to the heavily weighted topic of having sex for the first time. Shechter explores how hegemonic ideologies have influenced our thoughts surrounding female virginity, including the marriage and porn industries. Real women share their stories and open up about their experiences about what it means for them to live in a society that places such emphasis on sexuality, yet contradicts itself by encouraging purity. How to Lose Your Virginity premieres at DOC NYC this Sunday. Info:
