TLC Defends Virgin Diaries: It's Not Exploitation, It's Celebration!

Right…

TLC is defending their one hour special on virgins.

While many critics are calling Virgin Diaires TLC's latest debacle of privacy, TLC West Coast VP of Production, Timothy Kuryak, says otherwise.

Kuryak said the following about the new show:

We’re not trying to make light of this or treat it in a sort of trivial way. We want to document these peoples’ stories and why they make this decision.

A lot of stories about later in life virgins talk about it like a problem. We want to show that this is something that can be celebrated.

While everyone has a right to keep their virginity, leading with a promo showing this most awkward kiss in the history caught on tape doesn't exactly inspire anyone.

The two kissers, Shanna and Ryan will be remembered forever.

But not as virgins. Just virgins who can't kiss. At all.

Do U think this is celebration? Or exploitation?

    Leave them alone! At least some people are not whoring around and having 3 kids from 3 different man by 22, living off welfare!!!! I cant believe people are being ciritisized because of a certain way they live - isnt that what YOU are always preaching about????

    Re: Judyg73 – Well said.

    I think its a good idea. We 'exploit' sextape stars and thiefs and crazy imature women in these house wive shows….why not give girls someone to look up to who isnt whoring themselves out or acting like an idiot?

    Anyone who believes this is real deserves an ass whippin! How more fake does that kiss have to be, my God!!

    Prefer this to another endless 5000 hours and marathons of the boring, creepy, monotonous "Sister Wives" on TLC's. Why not an hour about people who maintain their virginity until marriage? Or does TLC have an agenda trying to promote the idea of one immature dufus screwing 4 and 5 low-self-esteem women and calling it love?

    So its fine to show Beyonce moving her Vjayjay in front of kids, Rhianna touching her vjayvjay with her legs open in public, Lady Gaga showing her vjayjay in a video, its fine to hear lyrics talking about sex, masturbation and all sort of sex stuff, its fine to see over sexual shows on tv that end up looking like erotica… but its really bad to show some people who have decided to stay virgin for their personal reasons……………….
    GOSH whats so wrong with the world?.

    Re: Judyg73 – Yeah, agree.

    Wow..you know society has hit a new low when you're criticizing a show about virgins.

    It's all fake to bring in the ratings. If they kissed like normal, no one would be watching the show/and it wouldn't be popular.

    Well, if that was their first kiss, it probably wouldn't be perfect. They can have a lot of fun getting it right. Anyway, she looks like she is into it.

    I personally CANNOT wait to watch this.

    1 out of every 4 people have contracted an STD before. Teen STD's are on the rise, most girls are stretched out by the time they are 16..Just saying.
