Virgin brides??

“Third of men still want a virgin bride.” I was all set to be flabbergasted and enraged by that poll until I read who conducted it: FHM. Oh. Well, duh. It’s pretty funny seeing the disconnect between the type of woman that gets featured on the cover of the magazine and the type of woman a third of its readers say they want to wed.

  1. I wonder where all these virgins will be coming from.

    What is wrong with wanting anything that is non second-hand (food,cars,clothes,bride)_the so-called liberation of women has done man-kind no favours!>>Thom

  3. I’m not sure what the first thought has to do with the second, Thom. I was more annoyed by the hypocrisy of a magazine that usually features porn stars on their cover reporting that their readers prefer virgin brides. There’s obviously a big disconnect between the behaviour and the expectations of their readers. I don’t think there’s any problem with people wanting to save themselves for marriage… as long as it’s an equal expectation, and not the manifestation of some icky Madonna/whore complex.

  4. I’m in the 66%. Perhaps I’m new-fashioned (or perhaps because I’ve already gone down the aisle once), but I think I’d prefer someone who knows what she’s doing.
