…to never write a virgin heroine again. I don’t care how realistic it is that a 19th century, unmarried, sheltered New England young lady would have no sexual experience. Trying to layer in the drama around the big event is a pain in the butt.
And then there’s Adam, who’s never deflowered a woman before and is also a pain in the butt. (Well, not literally, ’cause she’s not that kind of girl.)
â€œI’m feeling a little pressure here, woman.â€
â€œHaven’t you done this before?â€
â€œMany times, but you haven’t. What if you donâ€™t like my way of goinâ€™ about this? Hell, I could put you off sex forever.â€
Seriously, first and last virgin.
