Last night, while we were beside ourselves with the lack of television programming worth watching, we stumbled upon what could only be considered a weirdo goldmine. I have never seen more awkward shit in all of my days. For serious. The Virgin Diaries will make you wince, cover your face with a pillow, you may cry but you will surely laugh.

Let’s be clear, I’m not about to make fun of virgins, however I will mock the hell out of some seriously awkward people that make me feel very nervous while watching them. Now, onto the good stuff.
Mr & Mrs top left had never kissed before. Not each other, not other people. They decided, because they believed that they should, not to kiss until their wedding day in front of an audience. This went as you would expect, times a factor of a million in awkwardness. I have never seen something that makes me scream and cover my eyes like this. I’d say I was more afraid of this than the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. There was licking, and like fish kissing. It was horrible. You can watch it here but be warned.
Then we have Skippy on the bottom right who is a grown ass man that still lives with his mommy and has been collecting his belly button lint for 15 years. He takes his wing-mom to go trolling for women and is the most agressive guy ever. He met a girl at a party his friend threw so that maybe he could meet a girl and stop being so creepy. She came over to his [mother’s] house for their date. Wait…I’m confused, are we in high school? So they took their pizza and ate in awkward silence. But then, the big kicker, he had some guy come over and sing a song whilst Skippy tried to grab her boobs and she looked like she wanted to die. DIE. It was terrible. My prediction: Skippy will die a virgin.
There were five others on the show but meh, not as interesting. One 41-year-old woman who just “forgot” to ever have sex. A 32-year-old man who is terrified to have sex but is getting married in three days. A 33-year-old woman who is seriously holding a gun to her boyfriend’s head so that he’ll marry her because she’s beyond sexually frustrated. And two other girls that could very easily find love on a dating site.
I would personally file this under a show category like Teen Mom. The shows you watch and you’re instantly feeling better about your life.
I have stumbled upon this show before too. It’s a train wreck, but one that you have to watch. And that first kiss. OMG. Cringe city. SO AWKWARD!
ha! when I saw your tweet last night I thought you were talking about the virgin suicides! I was a bit off! I haven’t seen this yet but reading made me cringe so I don’t k ow if I could handle it…
So THIS SHOW. Like I watched it once with Craig and it made him so uncomfortable that he left the room. Obviously I was so enthralled with it. The one I watched featured a woman who threw herself a party to tell her friends she was still a virgin. Like what?
Yes I have watched this and yes I almost vomited when I saw that couple’s “first kiss.” More people should watch this show, totally underrated.
I am dying right now over that kiss – kissing isn’t hard, how could they get it so wrong??? My husband is going to hate me now that I know about this show because this is totally something I will get hooked on in a hot second! Rita Tomorrow reminded me I need to watch virgin suicides again too, I loved that movie!
oh my goddddddddddddd IM LAUGHING SO HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HA! I am so setting my DVR for this one!!!!
oh. my god. need to watch this… wowsa!
I actually watched the awkward kiss episode back a few months ago when it first aired. It was just so hard NOT to watch after seeing a teaser on the previews. Thanks for reminding of it again and giving me a good laugh today.
I died when I first saw this series. I watched it in horror a few months ago when it first aired. The Boyfriend was watching with me and when that kiss happened, he literally curled up into a ball on the couch, cringing and saying “ew, ew, ew, ew, is it over? is it over? ew!”
Ohhhkay. So, this show sounded super familiar to me and I thought maybe I had just seen a preview for it or something.
Well, I went back into my e-mail and searched “virgin” and sure enough, it turns out that almost one year ago I interviewed (for the Star) the casting director for this show. She’s from KC. After the interview, she started reading my blog and twice since then she’s tried to get me to take part in a couple other reality shows she’s casting for. I always said no, because I’m not interested. I think one was about people with shopping addictions and the other show was about people with “strange” lives.
Well, I’m super glad I said no to those two shows because when I looked back on the description she gave me for THIS show during our interview, this is what she told me:
“The reality series is basically a sweet, innocent look at people who choose to remain virgins. We don’t make fun of them. We don’t show them in a bad light. It’s a very positive show.”
Ummmm yeah. From what you’re telling me here, it seems the joke is on them.
I can’t even imagine what the shows she tried to snag me for are going to be like. Yeesh.
Long story, but I really had to share it with you.
OMG I almost lost it when I first saw this show!!! I think it was maybe like the first or second episode of the series and it was HILARIOUS! They were so cute and nervous and kissed SOOOO weirdly!!!!!!!! Gave me a much needed laugh!
I can’t even watch it. Its all too horribly awkward, and I have to watch through my fingers.
Granted, I know I must have been that awkward for my first kiss, but having it broadcasted on tv?! The horror.
Oh i Know it is just too good to be real!
HAAAAAA!!! I have not watched it, but I have seen that disgusto/super awk first kiss. I need to give this a try!!! xo
I sort of love you for this.
It really doesn’t get more awkward than that show. That kiss oh gaw.. can you even call it one? Where the hell were there friends? seriously! how does this happen?
OMG I saw that virgin episode! They looked like they were attacking each other. My fiance and I were hysterical! hahaha How awkward? So you’ve never kissed anyone before…and you decide to wait until your wedding day…in front of your friends and family…and a camera crew…and all of America. Good call.
i could never watch this so. just reading what you wrote makes me feel awkward. ew. and ew.
What!? If I didn’t think reality TV was weird before, I do now! Actually, people are weird.
