Review: The Virgin Diaries by Kimberley A. Johnson, Ann Werner

4 Stars
The Virgin Diaries
Author: Kimberley A. Johnson, Ann Werner
Pages: 230
Blurb from Goodreads
The Virgin Diaries is a book of seventy-two anonymous stories compiled by the authors about people's (men, women, lesbian and gay.) first time.

I really did not know what to think going into this book either. I mean, yes, I read the blurb so I knew it would be sets of stories about people's first time. But I guess I thought it would be a lot more sexual and really, though it is about sex, there was a lot of emotion in the book that I did not expect.

And I have to say that I really liked this book. But I also like the point of the book, that it is there to give some insight to those who need it. As the stories made me see, sex is something that everyone seems very confused about. Not the act itself but of some parents not talking about it with their children, just leaving them with a 'don't do it' or feelings of guilt gained because certain religion says it is a sin.

The people who wrote the stories contained in this book, anonymous or not, had to be very brave individuals. The stories are very real not something that was made out to sound story like, there was too much emotion for it to be not real.

There were some stories that made me wince with sympathy. Others that I could not help but chuckle at and then ones that made me teary eyed with so many other emotions and at how sweet or bittersweet the were.

I would recommend this book to anyone. I think this is a book anyone could gain something from reading. 

*I received an Ebook copy of this book for free to review from the author.
