Which is what made me snap up Ms. Kerce's
charming story, Virgin Seeks Bad-Ass Boy.I remembered my days of confusion whenever my peers would talk about such forbidden things as condoms and trysts that came after dark.While Ms. Kerce's
character knows what condoms are, she's
a wee bit confused on the parameters of what comes after you get the packet open and the clothes off.Losing your virginity is seen as a passage into womanhood, as if losing that thin membrane of skin suddenly rips you out of the world of ribbons and bows and plops you into the land of lipstick, emergency pregnancy tests, and runs in your hose.While our heroine is already in the world of lipstick and buying pantyhose, she
is starting to chafe at her
virginity and has laid plans to do something drastic about it.
