The weakest part of The Virgin Project is the artwork; Boze and Kato try to change up their styles-ranging from stick figures to morose realism-this book would be better as an anthology of different artists. Each book was about a different subject (death, urban legends, freaks, saints), and each one- to three-page entry was drawn by a different cartoonist.

Few human experiences are as universally shared, and yet as diverse, as the loss of virginity. The Virgin Project is a collection of first-time sexual encounters that illustrate a small sample of the breadth of human experience. Some people consider virginity as a prize to be given away. Some consider it a burden to be disposed of. For some, it was stolen and can never be restored. A few place little value on it at all. As one remarked, "I didn't lose my virginity any more than I 'lost' my pacifier. I outgrew it." The very moment of losing virginity among same sex couples can be a gray area and a topic of debate. Some focus instead on gaining their sexuality, and the opening of a new world of human experience. In one sense, losing one's virginity is an antiquated concept, because society no longer regards sex outside of marriage as shameful. Yet it still marks a passage from adolescence to adulthood for every generation. Most everyone remembers the "first time," some with regret, but many with fondness. According to Dr. Alex Comfort, writing in "More Joy of Sex," "Sex is the only social skill we do not learn by watching," which may account for the great variety in the stories. This first volume of The Virgin Project is the product of a collaboration between two artist-storytellers. They collected stories at various times and locations, including the Seattle Erotic Art Festival and the Victoria Erotic Art and Film Festival. All of the stories in this book are true. The names have been changed to protect privacy, and fictitious names were supplied by the people telling the stories, resulting in a few duplicate names. The variety of stories includes everything from teenage experimentation to wedding night nerves, including the humorous and tragic, gay and straight - all of them different. The introduction is by Ellen Forney, a professional cartoonist/illustrator/author and college instructor. In retelling these stories, artistic license has been used.

The Virgin Project is a stunning collection of true stories about losing one's virginity, all of which the artists captured via interviewed and "transcribing" the stories of men and women they met at two erotic art festivals. The results feature people of varying ages recounting experiences good, bad and ugly. Many, though not all, were in their teens, and there's lots of sneaking around, and a few parents being surprised. The artists work with what they're given wonderfully, both in disguising their subjects (the book opens with a woman with a paper bag over her head), as well as offering "The World's Fastest Virgin Story" in which a woman approaches and says, "He was a jock. He was a jerk. And...um...I still hate him," then takes off, not giving her (fake) name or age. There's Linda, the 46-year-old missionary who was, along with her soon-to-be-husband, a 33-year-old virgin, whose story ends with "And I'll bet you a million bucks you won't print this story."

It's the unexpected--and often very dark and violent stories--here that stays with you, though there is plenty of humor, as well as coming out (and come-ons from cousins). The whole question of what their "first time" was is revealed and sometimes retracted; several interviewees told of a rape, followed by their real first time. This is powerful testimony and it's clear that these people wanted to be heard and share these stories that so often get buried by all of us. This is a wonderful collection that I could see giving to someone on the verge of "losing it," or someone who's well past that stage.

Very adult, but very good copy of a collection of the most personable of coming of age tales. Drawn in a comic book style, these one or two page recollections will convince you that no two people experience sex the same way, the first time. Some are funny, sad, bittersweet and all are memorable. You might even discover the one tale of the author's first time if you read between the line. From the Star Trek convention hook-up to the committed couple's happily ever after, this book is a compelling read. Once you start, you won't be able to put it down. Highly recommended, but only for mature adults.

In 2008, writer K.D. Boze and artist Stasia Kato published their first collection of "Virgin Project" stories, at long last reclaiming the "loss of virginity rite of passage" anecdote from the realms of the frat house and summer camp bunkhouse. As Dr. Pepper Schwartz explains in her introduction to this second volume, this collection is "a small sample of the breadth of this human experience. Although loss of virginity may no longer hold the significance that it did when society regarde sex outside of marriage as shameful, it still marks an elemental passage and change in self-conception for every generation."

Some of these stories are basically "It happened--so what?" A few were preludes to long-term relationships. There are stories of adolescents gleefully plunging into a newfound world of eros. "Alice" recounts the uncomfortable, messier side of the experience as though it were the gorier side of heroic fantasy. Stories like those of "Danny" and "Benny" would have been fodder for Chaucer and Boccaccio in earlier days. And there are those stories, including those of "Clinton," "Devorah," and "Russ," that made me put the book down for awhile while I tried to come to grips with the pain in those memoirs.

Since each story is different, the art and storytelling technique varies as well. One of the funnier examples is the one "ringer" in the book, contributed by a goof who was trying to impress with a threadbare and hoary male threesome fantasy, which Kato illustrates in a wicked parody of X-rated Manga, complete with empty-eyed expressions on the characters' faces. Some of the stories are told as quickly as one panel in one page; others extend to three pages. But the storytelling is never flabby; the authors employ effective graphic shorthand that recalls similar technique employed by Will Eisner in his most taut "Spirit" stories. Overall, this collection is a tour de force of writing and graphic work that recalls the chameleonesque performances of Peter Sellers and Sir Alec Guiness in their classic comedies.

This book is designated "For Mature Readers" due to the subject matter and the explicit nature of some of the stories, but it is not a collection of porn. It would indeed be wonderful if someday it might be possible for some of these stories to reach teenagers on the cusp of sexual experience. As Dr. Schwartz reminds us, "...romance and the beginning of great love affairs are the exception, not the rule." This book approaches first sex with blunt honesty, and for that reason alone it is one of the most important graphic novels/collections published this year.

As if sex weren't complicated enough, the first time can be as difficult to make peace with as it was to finagle. Or it can be maddeningly forgettable. Or an adolescent tragedy. Or a triumph. One thing's certain: this collection of true "first time" experiences, retold and illustrated by K.D. Boze and Stasia Kato, is an instant contender for the title of "Sweetest Adult Comic Book Ever Published."

Whether they're retelling a story of adolescent discovery, messy experimentation, sexual initiation with a hooker, or the anguish of rape, Boze and Kato, individually and in collaboration, infuse each story with heartfelt humanity. If you're looking for bodice-ripper prose or explicit depiction of conjugating genitalia, go elsewhere. While this book has plenty of nudity, positions, and an undeniable arousal factor, it's truly about people. The laughter generated by "Arlen's" story is as straight from the soul genuine as the gut-wrenching tragedy of "Jayne."

Each story is anywhere from a page to three pages long; some are in color, but most are black & white. They are, by turns, funny, sad, hilarious, heartbreaking, gay, very gay, and exuberant. Everything but nasty; Boze and Kato don't go there.
