Stereotype #3: Virgins Are Librarians, Wear Glasses, and Twist Their Hair in a Bun

No, I'm not joking.  A surprising number of men truly believe most virgins are librarians, who wear glasses and tie their hair up in a "boring bun." When I say I have heard it all as an undercover virgin, I truly mean, I have heard it ALL.

This virgin's take? I think it's the male libido subconsciously wanting to watch the straight-laced, good girl save a horse and ride a cowboy.

For the record, I'm not a librarian.  Although...I suppose I could role play one.  You know, I could dress up in a pencil skirt and crisp white blouse, tie my hair in a bun, stick a pencil behind my ear, and slip on some glasses. Then...let the games begin. Turn on a little Marvin Gaye, shake down the hair, unbutton the shirt, throw off the glasses, unzip the pencil skirt...you get the picture.

Now, I ask you, does that sound boring to you?

Stereotype #3--SLAYED...and then some.


  1. I kind of like librarians. Never seen one that looks like your description though.

  2. Joe--I absolutely agree and that was precisely my point...the guys were all describing a librarian exactly like I stated above. I was just shaking my head, laughing. It was so silly! Librarians are cool...and so are virgins, if given the chance. That's why I'm trying my best to tackle all the stereotypes that seem to keep coming up. :)
