As I say above in the description for the first issue, Virgin is a zine about trying to open up a space to discuss the various reasons that people might not have (had) sex. The author concluded the first issue with a call out for folks to share their own stories about why they are a virgin. For only 16 pages this zine shows a very wide range of experience, from those who say they want sex but can’t get it to others who consider themselves asexual, and more in between.
