Since Charlie, the main character in my novel, is an aspiring screenwriter who has plotted her own devirginization campaign - one that doesn't go as scripted - I thought an appropriate theme for this month would be: an alphabetical romp through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright scary representations of virginity in film. Warning - be prepared for adult content / strong language if you follow my posts this month.
Join me over the next 26 days for some swoonworthy and/or cringeworthy cherry popper moments on the big screen. Check out the multitude of amazing A to Z bloggers via the challenge main page, HERE. And don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY at the end of this post!
M is for Mermaids (1990)
Both Cher and Winona Ryder are quirky as hell in this tale of a young girl who decides to become a nun and is perpetually embarrassed by her free-spirited mother. Bonus - the story is set in the 60s at the cusp of the sexual revolution.

Soundtrack: Cher recorded a version of "It's in His Kiss" for the soundtrack and the music video is a promo for the film:
