DIARY OF A VIRGIN by Cindy Peach


Email this review


The British have a healthy tradition of softcore paperback porn-comedy, and this is one of the more standard variations: gorgeous bird trying to lose virginity. Cindy is a ""flawlessly beautiful young girl""--or, as her first lesbian seducer avers, a ""gorgeous, luscious, sexy cunt"" and a ""natural."" So Cin has no trouble starting out on the usual round of coiti interrupti--with gardener Joe (Cin's lusty pa interrupts, wanting to join in), with her brother ""Cabbage"" (his wife interrupts), with her doctor (her case of measles interrupts), Uncle George (his hang-ups interrupt), a pale young curate she saves from drowning (Dame Louisa of Buxton Hall interrupts), and others. Finally, a nice chap named Harold manages the job--and all is dandy aa Cin sets off to spread the wealth. Nothing especially distasteful here, nothing especially engaging either (unless Harold Wilson jokes turn ye on). On a paperback rack in Victoria Station--why not? in hardcover, States-side--why
