"If sex sells, why is virginity so valuable?" This eye-opening and irreverent documentary explores why female virginity is still so valued in our hyper-sexualized society. Traveling through the worlds of religion, history, pop culture and $30 internet hymens, the film reveals the myths and misogyny behind a rite of passage that everyone thinks about but few truly understand. From Therese Shechter, the director of “I Was a Teenage Feminist." (2013, 67 min., video)
