    I think for most men, it boils down to one of two things: A) The guy is self-conscious about his own performance, and thinks that a virgin won't know any better. B) The guy likes the idea that the girl has never been with anyone else, because it makes him feel special.

    I can't. This is important.

    So, they're going from virgins to high priced hookers in one single plunge?

    Well, maybe several plunges.

    What a sad commentary on modern society.

    Please note the winkie- I was clowning. The way I see it, God won't need to get pissed off- we will willingly march toward our own self-destruction.

    I mean, hymens are stretchy; virgins can use tampons.
    On the other hand, they're fragile, and girls who are active in sports and other physical activities often end up breaking them.

    In short, a hymen is a very poor indicator of virginity.
    There's no physiological way to determine whether or not a female is a virgin, unless she's given birth, in which case it's pretty easy to tell.

    that is just.... too much. tooooooooooooooooooo much

    Do you mean physically, or psychologically? Just curious, and I don't mean to pry.

    do you get the TV too, or is it just all they could find as seats
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I actually laughed out loud more than once in this thread, which is rare when I come to DP, so kudos people.

    As for the actual show... I don't know, it's just the next level of reality TV depravity to me. How can we be shocked by this? I found the bachelor and the bachelorette pretty sleazy too. It was basically polyamory for the mainstream.

    Best thing you can do is just not watch it. Don't give them the ratings.

    ... Sociologically? I've been preparing for the end of the world all of my adult life, but I'm not equipped-- physically or psychologically-- to face it alone.

    It's a reality show. Who cares? It's not like they're forced to bang the guy who "buys" them anyway.

    Uh, God approved of selling girls for sex (among other things). Yahweh wouldn't care less (if he existed).

    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

    "When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. (Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)
