‘Virgin Territory’: Teens Expose Lives Without Sex — Embarrassing Or Cool?

Growing up, teens are exposed to a hyper-sexualized society, which has become the norm. However, one show will challenge that: MTV’s ‘Virgin Territory’. The docuseries, which premiered on July 16, gives a voice to the voiceless — virgins.

Virgin Territory delves into the lives of 15 virgins, as they make one of the most important decisions of their young adult lives: to keep or have their V-card swiped. Keep reading for our review of Virgin Territory (we promise, it’s good)!

‘Virgin Territory’: MTV’s Revealing, New Docu-Series

Each week, Virgin Territory follows four young people — some who are hanging onto their virginity until marriage, and others who are hoping to lose it.

Virgin Territory is a breath of fresh air for MTV. Previously, MTV produced shows like Jersey Shore, notorious for showing one night stands and hook ups in the infamous smoosh room. And we can’t forget about 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom – and, well, you know what happened there.

We are happy that MTV chose to tackle the topic of virginity and produce a show that explores the lives of virgins, something that other networks have yet to do. There are not enough shows on television that send the message to teens that it is okay to be a virgin.

“Through our ongoing partnership with the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, MTV will continue this tradition by elevating the discussion of responsible sexual health to include the topic of virginity in a way that our audience might find surprising,” said Lauren Dolgen, EVP Series Development & Head West Coast Unscripted for MTV.

‘Virgin Territory’: 15 Teen Virgins Speak Up

In the series premiere, viewers met Dominique, Kyle, Lisa and Mikaela. Lisa and Dominique disclosed they want to remain virgins until they say, “I do.” However, Kyle and Mikaela are ready to lose their virginity — as long as they find the right person.

If viewers have ever wished that there was a show that made them feel normal because they were a virgin than Virgin Territory might be that show. And if you’re not a rookie in that arena, it’s still worth watching and unlike anything else you’ve seen on reality TV.

We think that Mikaela said it best on the July 16 premiere: “Don’t think that being a virgin should be made out to be such a big deal like we’re aliens or like a weird species.”

HollywoodLifers, did you tune into the premiere of Virgin Territory? Are you hooked and coming back for more? Let us know!

I say good for mtv. I felt like a total loser for graduating high school a virgin. People always were surprised. I was a pretty girl. I started having sex just to fit in. I have never made a worse decision! I wish I’d have waited.

What so wrong about being a virgin? All these teen with babies shows are accepted, but a virgin show is not.
