I don’t have the first clue WHY this exists…I guess it’s a promo for the upcoming UFC event December 10th in Toronto – UFC 140 will pit Jon Jones against Lyoto Machida. But whoever dreamed it up was just bonkers enough to actually do it, and I came across it because I have a “google alert” set up for Steven Seagal.
And…there you go. UFC 140 – complete with karate kid crane kick and a peacefully pleased Steven Seagal.

Virgins creep me out. I don’t mean virgins who, through social ineptness or a lack of opportunity have remained virgins for years. No, I mean virgins who have chosen to remain chaste and untouched throughout their whole lives until marriage. Not only does it smack of an irritating self-martyrdom, it’s probably the most impractical idea when it comes to having a long, happy life and relationship.
Now, some of you may be saying “that’s awful! I think it’s lovely when someone saves themselves for the perfect person and for marriage, and in no way is that creepy!” Those of you saying that are, of course, wrong. I defy you to watch this clip, of a married couple sharing their first-ever kiss in life, and NOT be a little creeped out.
My skin crawled through that whole kiss. Gross. This is a trailer for what promises to be the most awkward, cringe-worthy new reality show on TV, TLC’s Virgin Diaries. Says a show’s spokesperson, “Virgin Diaries takes you inside the lives of adult virgins who reveal the challenges, truths and anticipations of losing their virginity.”
This leads to three questions for me – first, if these people have worked so hard for so long to remain virgins because of some silly idea that it makes them better people, then how do they reconcile losing it on television? Second, if the first kiss was this awkward, how painful will it be to watch the first sex? And third, how long has it been since The Learning Channel forget that they have the word Learning right in their name?
