View Full Version : Virgin School

17-05-2007, 10:24:03
I was just talking to mr_G about this on MSN and thought it deserved a wider audience.

There was a show on Tuesday called Virgin School, the basic premise was they took an English virgin James (26) over to Amsterdam to attend an intimacy course, that could eventually end in him losing his virginity to one of the instructors. Anyway, mr_G didn't believe it was real, so here's the link.

i was going to post a quote from someone, but he wouldn't let me

One of my favourite bits of the show was them interviewing dutch graduates of the school one dutch business man was really funny (partly 'cause of the accent) he said "before I went to the shhchool it wash a real problem for me, but now I have losht my virginity and I found out I'm actually a really great lover. jesjes."

I'm tempted I'm tempted

to avoid losses, application of an RFID tag is advised

otherwise, you'll have to address to the local Lost & Found office to reclaim your virginity

I was intrigued to note that he consistently wore Y-fronts under boxer shorts. Is that a new fashion?

17-05-2007, 17:12:15
Some people like the support of the tidy whiteys, but the look of boxers.

18-05-2007, 08:29:58
'some people' eh

18-05-2007, 12:26:46
I go commando.

18-05-2007, 12:42:42
to your balls?

18-05-2007, 12:46:01

Many times I like to go Polish Commando. That's no underwear and no pants.

18-05-2007, 12:49:25
isn't that Scottish?

They wear skirts. Abd I saw a guy at the mall wearing a kilt. He looked tough.

We actually planned an evening in to watch this because it looked so good. We weren't disappointed.

I liked the bit where she was wanking him off and his leg was twitching LOL

I got the impression he just got stuck at 14, still doing his paper round. Bless. This is why it used to be acceptable to be a bachelor. He did say at one point that 'I'm just not that into women!'. Er.... there's your clue.

And yes, what was the two lots of pants about?:confused:

18-05-2007, 18:24:24

I'm sure the US is already planning a show like this. They can just go to Nevada.

sorry, after various google searches, I'm not sure I got the right meaning for "paper round" in this context.

for sure some advanced anglosaxon social drill we lack in our backwards latin country


or maybe it's just me

A person who has a job delivering newspapers to peoples houses is said to have a paper round.

21-05-2007, 08:20:06
:takes in new bit of info:



ok, it's a job usually apt for teenagers (and zmamas)... so what?

21-05-2007, 10:03:55
Are you sure these questions aren't a clever plan to get me kicked?

Anyone can do it, it tends to be teenagers or retired people here...

21-05-2007, 10:19:03
Yeah, most people over the age of 15 realise that carrying a massive bag of papers around a 2 or 3 mile route at 6am every day for £15 is a bit of a rubbish job.

The program looked great on the adverts, but I didn't see it. Might try and torrent it now...

I know adults who do paper routes. They use a car, and generally do a fairly large number a day.


21-05-2007, 14:49:31
That's the american way, just throwing the paper in a general direction. Over here you actually have to put the paper in the mailbox at every house.

From AA Gill's column-

Ihave always thought that part of any critic’s job is to be the voice from the stalls, to speak up on behalf of the audience. With a TV critic, that includes the misguided, deluded simpletons who find themselves on the wrong side of reality, the butt of the entertainment. Last week, I watched agog, agape, aghast and ultimately akimbo the worst, most callously cynical exploitation of the most vulnerable, pathetic, spindly sap ever to have a camera hose down his life. Humiliation is just too comfy a word for what happened to a man we shall have to call James, because that’s his real name. James, the 26-year-old virgin, was paraded in front of the nation without pixelation, silhouette, wig, false moustache, actor’s voice-over, his socks, shirt and underpants – or shred of dignity.

Virgin School (Tuesday, Channel 4) took this speccy chap, who lived at home with his dad, had a paper round, shopped with his nan and talked with the nasal whine of the congenitally unlovable, and whisked him to Amsterdam, where three women even Wayne Rooney on the outside of a gallon of Southern Comfort would have had trouble fancying ran what the Dutch call a new-age relationship therapy centre. “Here we see James having his first-ever assisted orgasm,” said the narrator, hardly believing his luck. That made two of them. Well, three of us, actually. The counsellor said James suffered from exceedingly low self-esteem. James said he suffered from exceedingly small penis. And obviously the clinical answer to both those conditions is to take all your underpants off (he wore two pairs) and shag a Low Country lady on telly. By the time it was all over, I’d eaten the sofa and one of my fists.

But, you know, after every scrap of ego had been stripped off him, as he stood there naked, both literally and figuratively, there was something heroic about James. Something free, majestic, wise. Ecce homo, I thought. Here is man. Actually, I just made that last bit up. He still looked like an underendowed chump. So, well done, Osca Humphreys, producer-director; respect. This amoral, gratuitous piece of bullying shows you are just made for TV.

I'm amused to see that he could accuse the presenters of "bullying", and yet still feel able to call him an "underendowed chump".

And also "most vulnerable, pathetic, spindly sap ever to have a camera hose down his life" the program was much more sympathetic to James than AA Gill was in that article.

I thought James' friend's excrutiating embarrassment when they filmed James talking to him about the process was probably the most cringeworthy bit.
