Seventy-two men and women, gay and straight, answer that burning question.

TVD cover TVD pageThe Virgin Diaries was created for teens and virgins of any age, as well as for parents who wish to educate their children in a sex positive way.

Hundreds of years of collective experience answer the questions every virgin has: “What does it feel like to lose your virginity?”  THE VIRGIN DIARIES is a book about sex that really isn’t about sex at all. Rather, it’s about the feelings associated with that first time: wondering about it, worrying about it, the expectations, the surprises and the disappointments. Within these pages are the recollections of seventy-two people, young and old, gay and straight, who responded to the call for answers. This candid collection of stories provides a unique opportunity to be a fly on the wall. There is no commentary. The stories stand on their own, allowing the reader to form his or her own conclusions about the loss of virginity and what it means. Whether you are a virgin and desire to make an informed decision, a parent faced with “the talk” or are interested in reading detailed accounts of one of life’s most personal experiences, THE VIRGIN DIARIES offers confidential insights and illustrates the commonalities we all share: our hopes, dreams, fears and insecurities. It shows that we are all human and therefore, all connected.

Testimonials & Interviews

I enjoyed working with both Kimberley and Ann. The book: The Virgin Diaries is a must read because it shows no matter if you are heterosexual or homosexual your first time sexual experience is something that will always be with you. I admired the diversity of the book from interviews with the young to the old. Both Kimberley and Ann are entertaining and informative. I hope to have them back on Mancow in the future.  Shaunta Garth, Executive Producer of The Mancow Muller Show

What a fun and informative interview with Kimberley and Ann! You think it’s hard to talk about this important and often awkward moment in people’s lives? Kimberley Johnson and Ann Werner are professionals and a fun, warm, mother-daughter team. They presented the stories of losing virginity in a funny, educational, honest, and nonjudgmental way. Safe for young listeners, but engaging for adults too. Looking forward to your next book & would love to have you on the show again!Thanks! :)Monika Thomas of SexplorationwithMonika.com

Kimberley Johnson and Ann Werner are entertaining and educational while providing a refreshing and fun interview about a potentially awkward topic. This Mother/Daughter team share insight, advice and stories from over 70 people that contributed to the book, The Virgin Diaries. I feel like I am more prepared to talk with my 15 yr old daughter and can do it with confidence. They are a class act!

Kimberley is a delightful guest. We had a candid discussion about virginity—and its loss—on my radio program. I was reluctant to have her on at first because of the salacious nature of the book’s title. I am on record as saying it would have been a mistake if I had let her escape my guest list, however. She is worth it.

Kimberley Johnson was a recent guest on my show “The Drive” on 1350 KSRO in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is smart, funny, and engaging and our listeners loved her! The Virgin Diaries is fascinating and really unique. I would recommend her as a guest on any show in any format!
