DOCS: 40 Year Old Virgins

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha July 28, 2017 :
Most of us lose our virginity in our teens or early twenties. But for some, problems having sex for the first time overshadow their lives. Clive, aged 45, from Hertfordshire, and 29-year-old Irish-born Rosie, are both virgins – and not through choice. Now they’ve decided it’s time to lose it. This film follows Clive and Rosie as they embark on a radical course of sex therapy in the USA where they work intensively with a therapist and professional sex surrogate partner – who are trained and work with licences. For two weeks, Clive is partnered with the doyenne of sex surrogates Cheryl Cohen Greene, whose life story is told in the Oscar nominated film The Sessions. Rosie works with Gary Mallinickrodt – one of only 5 male sex surrogates in the US licensed to work with female clients. Over the course of two weeks Clive and Rosie will be helped to overcome their issues around sexual intimacy. But will they – finally – lose it?

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
