This month is all about discovering new blogs, meeting new friends, and spreading the word about the launch of my young adult novel, MY SOON-TO-BE SEX LIFE, (Bloomsbury Spark, June 2014) by participating in this mega, 26 posts blog challenge.
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!
R is for The Rules of Attraction (2002)
A love triangle complete with the added complications of virginity and bisexuality, this film is based on a novel written by Bret Easton Ellis who also penned American Psycho.
The premise: "The incredibly spoiled and overprivileged students of Camden College are a backdrop for an unusual love triangle between a drug dealer, a virgin, and a bisexual classmate."
Screwed up logic line: "Since when does fucking somebody else mean that I'm not faithful to you?"
Great scene: Lauren, the girl Sean is lusting after / falling for, turns him down.
