Finished ...

... reading Hanne Blank's Virgin : the untouched history, originally recommended by anotheranon. Everything she said and more ... this is as essential a must-read for any female (and any male wanting anything to do with females) as Blackledge's The Story of V.

My personal ponderings were a little different ... reading this book made me realize that not once, ever, in my upbringing, was virginity really mentioned, either as something important or something that had to be preserved (I don't recall ever beging told sex was an only-within-marriage thing either); instead what was impressed on me was the importance of caring for, and being cared for by, whoever I had sex with ... several parent points scored here for those teachings.

Short version: READ IT!
